Rhys Millen Racing Signature Edition Hyundai Equus - Click above to enlarge

At first blush (and second blush, and third...), it doesn't quite seem fitting that Hyundai would choose to bling out its range-topping Equus sedan for the rapidly approaching SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Still, here we are with a Rhys Millen Racing Signature Edition Hyundai Equus... for better or for worse. For those keeping track, this is the third consecutive year that the Korean automaker will be featuring a Millen-fettled machine in Vegas.

Says Millen, "The intelligent luxury platform of the new rear-wheel drive Equus is a perfect vehicle for tuners who have graduated from other segments and want to work with the best the automotive industry has to offer." And who are we to disagree with Rhys? We certainly can't argue with 415 horsepower - a useful 30-horse improvement over Hyundai's stock 4.6-liter D-CVVT "Tau" V8, courtesy of a RMR bolt-on cold air intake and stainless exhaust systems.

Naturally, the interior and exterior of the RMR Equus will see plenty of eye-catching updates, not the least of which will be the two-tone carbon fiber and Red Bull Racing blue satin clear paint by BASF set off by HRE 21-inch P40 wheels. Inside, the whole lot of it will be swathed in (what else?) ostrich leather and suede.
