One-off Hyundai Tucson built for SEMA 2015

Hyundai has collaborated with Rockstar Performance Garage to create a 2016 Tucson that promises off-road ability aplenty. Developed for next month's Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas, it features a comprehensive suite of modifications.

Serious all-terrain use demands a decent amount of ground clearance. Therefore this unique Tucson boasts a six-inch ride-height raise, courtesy of King Shocks adjustable strut coilovers at the front and remote-reservoir dampers plus progressive springs at the rear.

Also fitted is a set of KMC 17” XD Series 'Bully' rims shod with Mickey Thompson 32” MTZ P3 tyres. Unsurprisingly, the arches had to be enlarged to accommodate such a suspension and wheel combination.

Further adding to the rugged looks are the revised bumpers, which were created by Rockstar Performance Garage and Wicked Image Designs.

Powering the all-wheel drive Tucson is a four-cylinder, 1.6 litre engine that's mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. It gains numerous performance parts including a custom air intake, an upgraded intercooler, an oil cooler and a replacement exhaust.

Hyundai has yet to reveal the effect on output, though.
