FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 22 CA-Hyundai-SEMA-Show




FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 22 -- Hyundai Motor America and RIDES magazine are teaming up
to develop a customized Hyundai Genesis for the 2008 Specialty Equipment Market Association
(SEMA) Show. The RIDES Genesis will be the ultimate in technology, style and refinement, containing
the latest in technology both inside and out. As added incentive to visit the Hyundai display, 5,000
RIDES Digital Genesis iTunes cards will be distributed from the car's Wi-Fi network during the show
at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Nov. 4 - Nov. 7, 2008.

"This Genesis perfectly suits the mobile executive, with multiple Mac
computers and its own mobile Wi-Fi network," said Ben Harris, associate
publisher, RIDES. "All of the modifications compliment the Genesis' natural
attributes and emphasize the sleek look and luxury interior. We are looking
forward to the SEMA show and displaying this amazing vehicle."

Inside, the RIDES Genesis will feature the latest in digital accessories including two Mac Mini
computers, a MacBook Air, iPod Touch, iPhone 3G, high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection and movie
theater-quality surround sound. The trunk will house its own Mac mini computer, a 20-inch Apple
Cinema Display and a motorized tray containing the mouse and keyboard for the rear computer.
Within the center console will be the iPhone 3G, Mac Book Air laptop and wireless keyboard and
mouse for the Mac Mini mounted on the rear deck. Each passenger in the back seat has their own
computer with internet connectivity. The 8.4-inch VGA headrest monitors are wrapped in the original
leather to maintain the OE look and feel, while the seats contain suede accents.

"Genesis' spacious and ultra-quiet cabin offers an ideal environment to
experiment with new in-vehicle information and entertainment systems," said
Michael Deitz, manager, Product Development, Hyundai Motor America. "Adding
state-of-the-art connectivity and computing power to existing technology like
navigation, Bluetooth and satellite radio, this RIDES Genesis offers a glimpse
into the future of hi-tech luxury."

At the Hyundai booth, SEMA attendees will view clean exterior modifications to compliment the high-
tech interior. Modifications include 22-inch custom-made staggered fitment MHT three-piece wheels,
Pirelli tires, custom-molded front body kit and side skirts, lowered suspension and smoked
headlights. Custom dual-tip stacked exhausts and custom-molded rear bumper accentuate the
metallic silver and blue paint job.
