COSTA MESA, California — A 600-horsepower Hyundai Elantra GT Concept is the latest offering in the Korean automaker's stable at the 2012 SEMA Show.

California tuner Bisimoto Engineering tweaked the Elantra GT for its first SEMA appearance, giving the concept a boost of 452 hp over the production version of the car. Hyundai Motor America said the Bisimoto Elantra GT is "one of the highest specific-output Hyundais ever created."

The Hyundai Elantra GT Concept gets an ARK custom body hit, Bisimoto racing seats and a custom interior.

"Bisimoto gave the car a complete reworking with an emphasis on outrageous performance gains," said Hyundai in a statement on Monday.

Details include forged Arias pistons, a Turbonetics turbocharger, a Bisimoto-built 1.8-liter "NU" family Hyundai engine, and a custom laminated body wrap.

The cabin gets Bisimoto racing seats and harness, a Racepack IQ3 dash and Rueda interior paint.

Hyundai has been rolling out its SEMA offerings across its lineup. One of the more notable cars is a Hyundai Veloster Alpine Concept by Ark Performance.

Edmunds says: The extreme Hyundai Elantra GT Concept showcases what can be done with turbocharging and engine tuning.
