Even before its first appearance in public, which is going to be held very soon at the Grand SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas, the future Hyundai Elantra GT has won the attention of the world’s best engineering centers. The novelty has already been in the hands of American tuners at Bisimoto Engineering studio, which have thoroughly worked in order to give some power to this “hot” hatchback. The looks of the new model, as well as its interior may vary from a single teaser image presented at California studio, but it’s safe to say that it also has undergone the significant changes.

In its base model Hyundai Elantra GT was equipped with a standard four-cylinder engine of 1.8 liters, which can achieve the maximum of 148 horses. Bisimoto Engineering experts did not change the “native” power plant, but decided to just upgrade it to show what one can expect from a turbocharging system today. Among other things, a list of improvements includes the forged pistons from Arias, special connecting rods of Bisimoto, powerful turbo Turbonetics, water-ethanol injection AEM and high pressure injectors Bisimoto. All this, as well as modification of the electronics have increased the maximum capacity of four-cylinder 148-strong family hatchback with a sporty slant to an incredible over 600 horsepower.
