COSTA MESA, California — The 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo "Yellowcake" Night Racer by EGR Group was unveiled on Monday ahead of an appearance at the 2013 SEMA Show.

The Veloster Turbo concept features a screaming yellow paint treatment.

The color is called "Yellowcake," a reference to partially refined uranium ore that is often used as an intermediate step in the production of nuclear weapons.

The Veloster Turbo concept is the second 2013 SEMA Show concept vehicle unveiled by the Korean automaker. Earlier, Hyundai debuted a 1,000-horsepower Hyundai Genesis Coupe by Bisimoto.

Hyundai is one of the first automakers to get the ball rolling on the 2013 SEMA Show.

The EGR Night Racer pays special attention to cosmetic touches. They include a Wurton roof-mounted LED light bar and custom ONEeighty-branded headlights, which are intended for use on night-racing circuits.

The customizer said non-cosmetic modifications include a custom roll cage, ARK coil-over suspension and AEM strut brace. Bisimoto Engineering boosted the output on the 1.6-liter turbocharged direct-injected four-cylinder engine to 250 hp. Other details include oversized Brembo brakes, DPE three-piece racing wheels and Toyo semi-slick racing tires.

"EGR created a very special night-focused time attack car that perfectly showcases Veloster Turbo's inherently sporty DNA," said Mike O'Brien, Hyundai Motor America vice president of product planning, in a statement.

Edmunds says: Think of it as a Hyundai rolling nuclear bomb designed to take out the competition at SEMA.
