Blood Type Racing reveals 372kW Hyundai Veloster for SEMA

Blood Type Racing has revealed its 372kW-plus 2015 Hyundai Veloster in a design sketch ahead of its official reveal at SEMA in November.

NOTED PERFORMANCE TUNER, Blood Type Racing has revealed its 372kW-plus 2015 Hyundai Veloster ahead of its official reveal at SEMA in November. The BTR Edition Veloster was given a “Carbon Black” paint job, accented with a red racing stripe running from the front splitter up onto the bonnet.

Then, a carbon fibre wide-body kit gives the car a muscular, more aggressive stance, and front-mounted aero canards, front splitter and a rear deck spoiler were added. Red accents on the custom SSR three-piece wheels, along with red projector “demon eye” headlamps round out the extreme-looking package.

Blood Type Racing used the Veloster’s 1.6-litre “Gamma” four-cylinder as a starting block, but added new cylinder sleeves, a high-boost turbocharger from Garrett, and custom connecting rods and pistons. With a retuned OEM ECU working in tandem with the strengthened engine internals, power output is now more than 372kW.

The interior has been stripped down and given the full, race-spec treatment with the addition of a four-point roll cage, Sabelt bucket seats, harnesses and steering wheel, along with audio upgrades from Rockford Fosgate and Tanabe OLED Revel gauges.

“The focus of this build was to boost the performance capabilities of the Veloster R-Spec while creating one of the angriest-looking Hyundai vehicles to chew up the pavement,” said Sam Lee, Director of Marketing, Blood Type Racing, Inc. “The engine tune on this vehicle is pushing the small-displacement motor to the edge – We’re pushing this small displacement motor close to Formula 1 levels of performance. We’ve developed a number of internal components to help manage the power demands of this new engine, and paired with our hunkered-down suspension and aggressive exterior visuals, this Veloster is guaranteed to turn heads on the SEMA show floor.”
