Hyundai and Rhys Millen Racing show off Tau V8-powered RM500 Genesis Coupe

Ever since Hyundai debuted its Tau 5.0-liter V8, we wondered just how tough it would be to shoehorn the naturally aspirated monster under the hood of the Genesis Coupe. After much anticipation, the Korean automaker has teamed up with Rhys Millen Racing to bring us this, the RM500 - a 450-horsepower Genesis Coupe with a free-breathing, eight-cylinder heart.



The 5.0-liter powerplant is obviously the big story for the RM500, but there are plenty of other upgrades that make this one-off Genesis Coupe all the more interesting. RMR has added a custom stainless exhaust with a GReddy rear section muffler, oil cooler and rear differential cooler - all good for 20 additional horsepower. What's more, RMR has added things like a lightweight clutch and flywheel, new engine management system (natch), Brembo carbon ceramic brakes and new 19-inch tires on super-slick Z-rated tires (245/40 front, 275/35 rear) mounted on custom HRE wheels.



Specific RMR visual enhancements include a whole bunch of carbon fiber aero tweaks. Specifically, a new front lip, side skirts, rear diffuser, spoiler, grille, roof overlay, foglamp vents and foglamp covers. The end result is a sinister-looking Genesis Coupe that we'd love to get our mitts on.



Moving inside, RMR and Hyundai have added an interior suede package (because it wouldn't be a SEMA car without a touchy-feeling interior), sport seats, a new shift knob and a small steering column extension, among other little details.



Like most SEMA cars, we don't expect a factory version to come along anytime soon. But we'll say this: It's very good to know that the big V8 will fit under the Genesis Coupe's hood so cleanly. You know, just in case Hyundai might have something else up its sleeve...
