Depending on how you look at it, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec is either a step down in trim from the Track trim level or a step up. For some, the R-Spec's deletion of comfort and luxury features like GPS navigation constitute a step down, but for driving purists the R-Spec's luxury omissions mean that they can get all of the performance parts they want with the bonus of trimming the fat, both in weight and in complexity.
Regardless of how you look at it, the R-Spec is a huge value. For your $26,750, you get a sexy-looking Coupe a sport-tuned suspension, grabby Brembo brakes, and a 300-plus horsepower V-6 engine that puts power to the right wheels (the rear ones) through a limited-slip differential. It's an impressive performer that nips at the heels of Nissan's 370Z, but does it have what it takes to beat the Z on anything more than just price?
