I think this puppy is one of the best looking new cars to come out in a while. That solid black one looked sickkkkkk...

Know what their current engine/tranny setups are at this point? And what's the base price?

Saw these in a couple magazines and did a little reading on them. Their performance sounds like it should be pretty decent, but I'm not a fan of Hyundai at all. 2 of my friends have Tiburons and they are both unhappy with them. Maybe this will be different though. Only time will tell I guess...

Not a fan of the front fascia either.

Looks like a G35 and a Tiburon had a baby.:)

Here's some basic info: It's RWD and seats four.

The engine choices are: 2.0L turbo 4cyl @ 210hp or 3.8L V6 @ 306hp (on premium fuel).

Transmission options are as follows: 6-spd manual (both), 6-spd auto (3.8L), 5-spd auto (2.0L-T)

Curb weight is 3,294 lbs. (2.0L-T) or 3,389 lbs. (3.8L) (This is empty curb weight, with fluids the weights are 3,439 pounds and 3,549 respectively)

Mileage is ~20mpg city, ~30mpg highway (2.0L-T) or ~17 city, 26 highway (3.8L)

Finally, There is a track option that gives it a lowered suspension, Brembo brakes, a limited-slip rear, 19" wheels (with higher performance tires), and a spoiler.

U.S. MSRP has not been announced. But, based on conversion rates with Korea it starts at $18,728 (2.0L-T) and $27,382 (3.8L) without the track package.

All in all, pretty interesting. I saw it in person at the last NY International Autoshow, it's a nice looking car, especially with the track package. Seems like a much better car than their previous "sporty car" attempt, the Tiburon.

The nissan may be more, but it's a nissan. Not a hyundai.
That may have been true a few years ago, but lately Nissan has been slipping and Hyundai has been getting better. A lot of the latest reliability/dependability studies have actually put Hyundai over Nissan.

x2-hyundai has come a long way since the days of the 80s. That and nissan's future has been questionable for a little while now.


Car for car, the hyundai is more on the practical side. Plus, supercharger and turbo kits are already in development. We all saw this comming. Hyundai wasn't gonna sit on the sidelines and not be taken seriously anymore. The tiburon is a great car, and is a beast when boosted. However, its still fwd, and cant compete with other cars in its market from the factory. This changes everything. And the kicker is, buschur racing is developing staged kits that will not void the warranty of the car, hopefully.

Pricing has been announced. It seems to be very competitive. The V6 car starts at $25,000 for six speed manual and jumps to $29,500 with the addition of the track pack (limited slip rear, brembo brakes, ect). They also have an "R-spec" version of the turbo 4cyl that is $23,750. It's basically a stripped Track model (only convenience options are A/C, remote locks, and stereo; but it comes with all the stuff race stuff from the Track Pack).

Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. Six-Speed Manual $22,000
Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. Five-Speed A/T SHIFTRONIC® $23,250
Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. Premium Six-Speed Manual $24,250
Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. Premium Five-Speed A/T SHIFTRONIC® $25,500
Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. Track Six-Speed Manual $26,750
Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2.0-liter turbo 4-cyl. R-Spec Six-Speed Manual $23,750
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 Six-Speed Manual $25,000
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 ZF Six-Speed A/T SHIFTRONIC® $26,500
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 Grand Touring Six-Speed Manual $27,500
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 Grand Touring ZF Six-Speed A/T SHIFTRONIC® $29,000
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 Track Six-Speed Manual $29,500
Genesis Coupe 3.8 3.8-liter V6 Track ZF Six-Speed A/T SHIFTRONIC® $31,000

To give you an idea where this fits in:

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe (V6) is 306hp and starts at $25,000
The 2010 Mustang GT is 315hp and starts at $27,995
The 2009 Nissan 370z is 332hp and starts at $29,930

All in all, it fits in very well. I'm impressed.

My one comment though, is that I'm not too keen on having a 306hp RWD car without a limited slip rear. Maybe in Florida or So-Cal that's fine, but not for northern winters or dirt roads. So, if it were me, I would definitely pay the extra for the track pack or wait until I found a used one with it that I could afford.
