Hyundai Genesis Coupe Concept Revealed

IMO, looks very nice - certainly sporty. Quoted to have over 300 horsepower, LSD, brembo brakes, etc.



Here is the official word from Hyundai:

This is the first time that I've ever seen that concept car. I think its kind of cool, but I'd like to see how much of that styling actually makes it to the production car. Did anyone mention if it was FWD or RWD?

This is a great looking car and although it hasn't been tested yet, certainly some great specs. The dip in the window doesn't look as bad as in the other car shown the other day and now I am glad Hyundai took a gamble on it. People bitch and complain that cars are too boring, yet when someone tries something different the same people break out the torches and pitchforks for being different. You can't win so you might as well try.

Guessing that the price will be less than $30K, if people can get past their blind hatred of car brands, this car should eat into the G35/350Z and perhaps in some of the entry luxury couple markets most of which will be $5,000+.

The article said this vehicle is going to be RWD with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Another car is set to replace the tiburon which will be FWD, or so says autoblog, however they are often wrong. They said it was stated directly by Hyundai at the unveiling.

Kudos to hyundai for answering the call of honda's fans. An inexpensive rear wheel drive coupe? What a concept.

RWD is a major plus. The car looks good, so I'm curious to see how it performs.
