Hyundai Genesis Coupe's new nose: Hot or not?

Leaked photos of what could be the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe have hit the Internet.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is due for a visual refresh at the 2011 Frankfurt auto show. But rather than wait a few weeks for a peek at the refresh, why not have a nice long look at this batch of "fresh pictures from Korea" unleashed onto the Internet by a source on a Genesis Coupe enthusiast site.

The blurry camera phone pictures reveal that the Coupe's face has been nipped and tucked to resemble that of the upcoming Veloster sporty hatchback. The massive hexagonal grille is certainly more aggressive than the current models, and the hood gains a pair of recessed vents that add to the new angry look (and potentially help pull hot air out of the engine bay).

Rumors point to an 3.8-liter V-6 engine that is also refreshed with more power than the current 306 horsepower mill, but we're crossing our fingers that Hyundai's new 429 pony-powered, 5.0-liter V-8 finds its way under the hood of an R-Spec model. We're expecting the details to begin to flow more freely now that the floodgates are open, so stay tuned to our continuing coverage of the 2011 Frankfurt Auto show.

While you wait, be sure to sound off in the comments with your thoughts about the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe's new look.
