Hyundai Employees: Is This an Elantra You Worked on?

According to the AutoGuide.com website, Hyundai has remade a standard Elantra into a rather amazing race car..inside and out:





".....the team is working its magic on the Hyundai Elantra. Called the ARK Road Racer Elantra Concept, the sedan takes the practical yet sporty lines and infuses it with an alternate persona, sporting integrated fender flares, forged racing wheels and custom front and rear fascia designs.

Go to the website posting for the inside stats, which includes:

"...a custom ARK turbo kit using an Xcargot XT26 turbocharger, Turbosmart blow-off valve and wastegate."
     The 5th Generation Elantra is assembled not only in Montgomery, but in a half dozen other places around the globe, so there is no way of know where the basic car they transformed came from. But I've asked the question of ARK Performance, and I'll post an answer, if I get one.
    Here's a photo of the 2017 model, before modifications.
