New Hyundai Veloster gets Turbocharged for Upcoming SEMA Show

| |

We already know for a fact that Hyundai is planning to launch a more powerful version of its new Veloster sports car fitted with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine delivering 208HP for a 0-62mph (100km/h) sprint time of under 7 seconds (Carscoop has officially confirmed all numbers), with European sales to start in early 2012.

We still don't know when and if this engine will be offered in North America, but those interested in a more hardcore Veloster will have a chance to see plenty of aftermarket options at this November's SEMA show in Las Vegas.

Among the many Veloster proposals that are expected to be displayed in SEMA, is a highly modified model created by Hyundai in partnership with ARK Performance.

The highlight of the tune is the addition of a custom twin-scroll turbocharger that helps lift the 1.6-liter engine's output from 138HP to 210-horses.

Changes will also be made to the car's suspension and brake systems, as well as the exterior with a new paint job, an aero kit and new alloy wheels, and the interior.

We'll bring you more on the Veloster from the SEMA Show on November 1.
