Blood Type Racing Reveals First Sketch of SEMA-Built Veloster Turbo
Blood Type Racing is known for their one-off Hyundai SEMA-built vehicles. As the auto event is coming near, we are to see more and more exciting projects. So, here it is the Blood Type Racing Hyundai Veloster Turbo R-Spec's first sketch. The car is under preparation for this year's SEMA show and as we can see from the image it has this sinister look and tough presence.
Sinister Appearance for the Exterior
It seems that this Veloster has switched over to the dark side, just in time for the next Star Wars series. So, let's get into details with this car's demanding look. First thing to mention is the amount of carbon fiber. The evil appearance of the car began with a "Carbon Black" paint job, accented with a red racing stripe running from the front splitter up onto the hood.
In addition, there is also a carbon fiber wide-body kit that is accompanied by front-mounted aero canards, front splitter and a rear deck spoiler. The trio also provides better down force at speed. Red accents on the custom SSR three-piece wheels, along with red projector "demon eye" headlamps are what make the car look that demonic.
Devil in the Engine
Under the hood of the car is the 1.6-liter "Gamma" four-cylinder. To make the car more harmonious with its exterior, BTR added to the engine new cylinder sleeves, a high-boost turbocharger from Garrett, and custom connecting rods and pistons. Using an ECU, the tuners managed to achieve more than 500 horsepower!
How about the interior? There are no sketches showing the work inside, however, BTR is saying that they have stripped it down and given it full, race-spec treatment with the addition of a four-point roll cage. They have also added Sabelt bucket seats, harnesses and steering wheel, along with audio upgrades from Rockford Fosgate and Tanabe OLED Revel gauges.
