Rockstar Teams With Hyundai to Build Insane Santa Fe

HYUNDAI TEAMS WITH ROCKSTAR PERFORMANCE GARAGE TO CREATE NITROUS-BASED ROCKSTAR SANTA FE CONCEPT OFF-ROADER FOR 2016 SEMA SHOW

This SUV is Bad to the Bone

The annual Specialty Equipment Manufacturing Association (SEMA) show is coming up the first week in November, drawing auto industry executives and business leaders from around the world to Las Vegas. It’s a chance for parts and accessory manufacturers to show off their wares, and for automakers to let their hair down and show how a little creativity can turn a production vehicle into something from a Mad Max movie. This year Hyundai has teamed with Rockstar Performance Garage to transform a Santa Fe SUV into an off-road beast. “Rockstar conveys its endless brand energy in everything we do,” Nick Ashby, developer of the Rockstar SUV said. “Our Rockstar Santa Fe Concept is simultaneously all-show and all-go, a non-compromising concept with tremendous capabilities and a confident demeanor to match.” Although you can’t buy the concept vehicle, you can test drive and purchase the popular Santa Fe at Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.

List of Modifications Goes On and On

There are so many modifications to the Rockstar Santa Fe that its probably easier to list the items that didn’t change. You can’t miss the Santa Fe, with its lifted menacing presence enhanced by four giant 35-inch off road tires. Under the hood is a 3.3L V6 engine from Lambda that has a nitrous assist package along with a special cold air intake and cooling setup. LED lighting, a blacked out stealth grill, rock sliders, a winch, skid plates and cool paint job all contribute to make this one Santa Fe that’s a must see for off-road enthusiasts. Although the public can’t attend the SEMA show, there is an after party on November 4 where all the modified vehicles will be available to everyone for inspection.

Want Speed over Brawn? Check Out the Santa Fast

The fun thing about the SEMA show is seeing all the different interpretations of production vehicles. The Santa Fe that you can buy at your Phoenix Hyundai dealer, Chapman Hyundai, is a perfect blend of comfort, style and utility. For those who like a beefier off-road machine, the Rockstar Santa Fe is the ticket. But if you are a demon for speed, you need to see the Santa Fast. The standard Santa Fe motor has been replaced by a twin-turbo V6 that’s outfitted with heavy duty pistons, special injectors and a reworked valve assembly to deliver a whopping 1,040 horsepower. Special suspension and a racing interior have turned this everyday Santa Fe into a real racer that could compete on any road track in the world. To see both Santa Fes and all the other special vehicles at the SEMA show, go to the SEMA Ignited website and purchase tickets.
