Toyota has announced that they’ll be showcasing the Tacoma X-Runner RTR (Ready to Race) at the SEMA Motor Show. This powerful truck will prove to be the benchmark of the company’s engineering efficiency.

The TRD supercharged 5.7-liter V8 Tundra-sourced engine can power the vehicle with an output of 504 hp (376 kW / 511 PS) and 550 lb-ft (752 Nm) of torque. The lowered suspension and the race-specific Goodyear Eagle tires on the 15-inch wheels can offer a perfect take-off for the powerful engine of the Tacoma X-Runner RTR. It is also equipped with a custom side-exiting exhaust which counts in the design as well as the performance of the truck.

Toyota has styled the vehicle in sporty red / silver paint scheme and with special graphical works. They have outfitted a TRD steering wheel and a roll bar in the vehicle and have tried to eliminate maximum unwanted elements from the interior to make it look bold and comfortable.

Inspired by supercars, Hyundai may introduce a Sonata Turbo at the SEMA Motor Show. Although the company hasn’t revealed detailed specifications, they have hinted that the design of the car is actually inspired from Ferrari, Mercedes and Porsche.

The model will be greatly inspired in design aspects with the Brabus Rocket  (which is based on the Mercedes CLS). Interiors are designed with an influence from the Ferrari 430.

The car will be build with matte pearl white paint, carbon fiber components, and 20-inch wheels. It will also get a premium leather upholstery and carbon fiber trim. It is likely to be equipped with a “quad tip dual exhaust” and the company has not yet revealed any performance details of the car.
