05 Jonny Lucas 2010 Hyundai Genesis PASMAG

Jonny Lucas is an industrial designer, so when looking for a car to call his own, the aesthetics of the car were incredibly important. He was actually shopping for the redesigned Camaro when it debuted in 2009, but after a friend recommended the Hyundai Genesis, he saw one driving on his way home from work, and he fell head over heels for the radical Korean designed coupe.

After a test drive at his local Hyundai dealer, he was completely sold, and the Genesis was his.

Lucas wanted to amplify the aggressiveness of the car, and he started with a set of 20-inch Forgiato Artigli ECL wheels.

ISR suspension arms, Parts Shop Max control arms and coilovers, and some elbow grease were enough to dial in -11 degrees of camber on all fours, but aggressive fitment was only the beginning.

Working closely with Auto Explosion Custom Auto Body in Gardena, California, Lucas was able to create his very own body kit – a wild take on the Genesis’ lines.

With a switch to air suspension via the Phantom Suspension air cup kit by Platinum VIP, the car was completely transformed.
