The Hyundai SR was made by Hyundai Canada to showcase its Performance Parts products and the entire in-house tuner division call Hyundai Performance Parts (HPP). There were 500 made (I hardly ever see any on the road; Hyundai Canada reports that only 400 were actually built) in total where only three colours were available; Tango Red; Space Silver and Ebony Black; I chose Space Silver. There are some great Articles on the SR on Page 2. The Accent SR is a fabulous little car with wonderful balance and plenty of get up and go thanks to a zippy four-cylinder. A sport-tuned suspension and eibach springs lowers its ride height and provides better handling. A few faux carbon fibre interior mods combine with an upgrated stereo and special exterior touches to finish it off. The Accent SR is just the first of (hopefully) many special tuner cars offered by Hyundai. Hyundai Canada launched an all-Canadian approach to in-house aftermarket performance parts called, Hyundai Performance Parts. Available through its dealers or online at www.hyundaiperformance.ca is a catalogue of performance and design enhancing goodies that’ll even get the most diehard tuner excited. There’s everything from performance clutch assemblies to Stop-Tech brake upgrades, B&M short shift kits, suspension upgrades and lowering spring kits by Eibach. Something as simple as an AEM air intake kit can do wonders for your engine’s ability to breathe, while the DC Sports strut tower brace can improve stability through the corners. An axle-back exhaust system can do a lot for forward thrust too, while making your car sound a lot sportier. Hyundai Performance Parts offers little items like chrome exhaust tips for upgrading the exterior to carbon-fibre style interior trim kits. Or maybe a few aero add-ons are more in order, like a rear wing or a set of more than forty customized alloy wheels. Aluminum foot pedals not only look good but work better during aggressive maneuvers, while specially designed audio systems by Clarion can be integrated for a finishing touch (keep in mind that I have it all!!! lol). Not shown on the website but reportedly available are turbo kits that can boost output in a Tiburon by more than 70 horsepower; the performance division is planning to continue building its offerings so that more and more of its cars will be tunable from the dealer level, and as importantly backed by the manufacturer without affecting its full five-year, 100,000 km factory warranty.
