SEMA 2011: Hyundai Veloster goes Frankenstein!

Five Hyundai Velosters invaded the 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas to display the sporty little model's performance capabilities and aftermarket potential.

The rally-ready ARK Performance Veloster, in particular, caught our attention with a custom, twin-scroll turbocharger and several other mechanical upgrades that increase output to 210 horsepower.

Actually, the tuning experts at ARK Performance revised the entire car, modifying the suspension, upsizing the brakes, adding a roll cage, and customizing the exhaust system in the process to create the ultimate toy for grown-ups.

A flat-grey paint scheme with green accents, custom headlights and taillights, as well as a new front grille are just some of the cosmetic upgrades that make this Veloster an exclusive machine.

As for the cockpit, you'll see features and amenities that don't exactly fit AKR Performance's rally-car bill including lots of Alcantara trim pieces, and a pair of subwoofers.
