My whole car obsession started with a 1997 Hyundai Tiburon. They've come a long way- but 55k will still be a tough sell. In that price range you can get a new Camaro ZL1 or Corvette Grandsport.

Btw, I thought THIS was the new Genesis Coupe....http://www.hyundaiusa.com/vehicles/f...genesis-coupe/

but 5.0L V8 coupe?? sure its not a swap someone has done with R-SPEC genesis sedan engine? thought RM500 was the only concept car.

wait... wait... just googled it and seems like its only for the 2012 models.

dang... now just need to work on the price... $55k is a lot of money for that badge.

Lets see how well it runs on the track. I have a feeling its not quite there yet but given their track record I have no doubt they will give BMW a serious run for its money in few years

it takes a lot of confidence in your product to back a 400+ HP car with an 8 year/ 100k warranty

They aren't putting a V8 in the Genesis Coupe, this has already been confirmed. The '13 models will get a revised 4cyl turbo and a DI V6.

"Hyundai has today unveiled a prototype of its new 460-horsepower V8 Tau engine. Hyundais latest engine prototype features all the technical know-how the company has gathered over the past few years of its rapid development.

The engine we see here is a derivate of the award winning V8 Tau engine applied to the Genesis sedan and features a supercharger and some other core performance technologies, that are brining power ratings to 460 hp – the highest hp rating for a Hyundai engine ever – and 435Nm of torque."

its going to be placed in the Genesis Coupe R-Spec model for 2013 or 2014

I don't see anything in that quote that would indicate it being placed in the coupe, the sedan has always had a V8 option. I used to own a Gen Coupe and still frequent the boards often, if this is indeed true then you are the only person out there right now who is privy to the information.
