COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ARK Performance has created a Veloster sport coupe concept focused on an extreme sports alpine-enthusiast lifestyle.

The Veloster Alpine concept expands on original Veloster functional design strengths, such as the hidden third door and wide-opening rear hatch with a focused interior theme. JPM Coachworks created the interior environment with a blend of Alcantara®, fine Italian leather and WeatherTek® breathable fabric. These materials were chosen specifically for their durability in wet environments, including leather that repels mildew and a WeatherTek material commonly used in snow apparel. Combined, these materials offer eye-catching accents within the overall interior theme, while drawing the snow-like exterior color into the cabin, with bright whites and cool shades of blue. As an added touch, the warmth of the Alcantara® suede material provides a welcoming environment after a frosty day on the slopes.

"Our Veloster Alpine concept reflects the diverse lifestyle versatility we envisioned in the original Veloster concept," said Ted Lee, owner of ARK performance, Inc. "This extreme sports coupe concept will appeal to winter sports enthusiasts who love to carve the snow as much as a twisty canyon road."

The 1.6-liter, direct-injected Veloster engine received engine modifications, including an ARK Performance DTS exhaust system, K&N intake System, Nitrous Express Proton Kit, ARK Oil Cooler, and BTRcc custom engine bay parts and tuning. The new engine boasts 232 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque from only 1.6-liters of displacement. The comprehensive list of Veloster Alpine performance enhancements include:
