RedBull just released a teaser of the new Hyundai "Genesis" prepped to climb the Pikes Peak. Driver Rhys Millen explains all the preparation that went into the car. Hyundai and Millen had one thing in mind when they build the car, breaking the current Pikes Peak record of 10:01.408 minutes set by Nobuhiro Tajima in 2007.

Want some stats about the car? This 1,850 lb Genesis has a 250 pounds Hyundai V6 engine which was overbored to 4.1L and turbocharged to give 775 hp and 750 lb-tq.

So, will Rhys Millen break the 10 minutes barrier at Pikes Peak?
