Hyundai has announced it’s working with Bismoto Engineering on a 500kW 2016 Hyundai Tucson to be revealed at SEMA 2015 in November.

HYUNDAI HAS REVEALED a sketch of its most powerful ever SUV, a 500kW-plus 2016 Hyundai Tucson which is being tinkered with by Bismoto Engineering and will be revealed in full at SEMA 2015 in November. It’s being called Bismoto’s Brute Ute.

Sticking with the Tucson’s 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, “Bisimoto mated strengthened internals with fast-burning flex-fuel, a high-boost turbocharger and an upgraded engine management system to put down more than 500kW to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. This rendition of the Tucson was built with the ultimate vision of packing world-beating performance and technology into a brand-new, unexpected vehicle platform,” Hyundai said in a short statement.

“The Tucson was the perfect platform for this year’s build, offering me the opportunity to captivate a wider audience by tapping into the growing popularity of the SUV market,” said Bisi Ezerioha, owner and chief engineer, Bisimoto Engineering.

“After hundreds of hours of testing and developing new engine components, we’re confident that this power plant can handle what we’re asking from it, delivering a fresh, race-bred take on the Tucson with performance and reliability at its core.”

As far as the looks are concerned, Bisimoto “gave the exterior a very clean “street fighter” look, riding on custom air-ride suspension”, white five-star race-spec wheels and sticky, R-compound rubber. A custom roll cage has been fitted and the front grille has been binned, replaced with a huge intercooler.
