Our passion for street and performance is what gave RMR its inspiration to create the RM500. Our efforts did not go unnoticed at this years SEMA show. The editors at AutoGuide.com awarded our Hyundai Genesis Coupe RM500 there top pick in the Top 10 Best Cars of SEMA: 2011 SEMA show.

It’s not the wildest or even the nicest looking car at the SEMA Show, but the RMR500 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is the perfect example of all that is right with modifying cars.The aesthetic modifications are clean and simple with a carbon fiber aero kit, a lowered suspension, some nice HRE 793-RS 19-inch wheels and Brembo brakes. The crux of this built, however, is what’s under the hood, with the factory 3.8-liter V6 swapped out for the new 5.0-liter Tau V8 found in the R-Spec Genesis sedan. Making 430-hp in that car, Rhys Millen Racing added a few extra goodies including a new exhaust system, GReddy muffler, plus oil and differential coolers. Final output is rated at 450-hp.

But the best part is the fact that as the Genesis coupe and sedan use the same platform, the swap isn’t all that difficult to do, a massive hint that Hyundai may actually be planning to offer a production car like this SEMA concept in the future. They’d be crazy not to.

Is it just me that doesn't like the design of the trunk?

It's not a sexy as the VIS K2 trunk but it's not bad.

I was looking at the car like... "Ok, why is a stock black car rockin a badge that says something about 500?" It was so clean, I didn't even notice the extra two "ribs" on the engine cover. Once I realized what was stuffed under the hood I felt like an ass for not noticing earlier. I dont think anyone could argue it was modified if they weren't told so from the beginning. Great work guys!
