Together with the Rockstar Performance Garage, Hyundai has built a special Santa Fe for the Sema.

The engine power is countered by a six-piston brake system at the front and a four-piston stopper at the rear.
Hyundai has again combined its strengths with the tuner Bisimoto for the Sema 2016. The result is a very special Santa Fe. Its 3.8-liter V8 petrol engine was pumped up to the biturbo with two turbochargers. With appropriate modifications in the engine environment, its power increases to a terrible 1,040 hp, which is passed on exclusively to the rear wheels via an adapted six-speed gearbox. With war paint, spoilers and 19-inch rims, the SUV looks fast even when stationary.
In addition to the Santa Fe SUV, Hyundai also has a pimped Veloster in its luggage. This project worked with the tuner Gurnade. The result is aRace-ready Veloster Concept. The package includes a tuned engine, lavish wing and spoiler work, 19-inch wheels under wide-flared wheel arches as well as a racing suspension and a racing brake system.
