2007 LA Auto show: Hyundai Concept Genesis CoupeWith 300 horsepower and carbon fiber, is it possible we mixed up our notes? Nope, it's a Hyundai. Get a first look from the floor at the 2007 LA Auto show.
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Hyundai is busy rewriting their image in the United States in a lot of ways and one of them is right over my shoulder. This is the concept Genesis coupe but it's just barely a concept because production is Spring '09. Let's talk. Rear wheel drive, 300 plus horsepower coming out of a 3.8 V6, hmm; that's a new Tiburon although it's got some real Tiburon design queues. I think it's a good thing, the front and the rear definitely seem to have immigrated from that point and I always thought the Tiburon was kind of a handsome car. So they hope this to be the most affordable 300 plus horsepower car in its sporty category. That would be a nice benchmark to hit. Again, rear wheel drive; we don't know much about the interior because this is not mocked up fully throughout the inside yet. You see some carbon fiber panels; probably not gonna make it to production if they want to hit that most affordable area, but nonetheless it's a more massive, more grabbatask-laden [assumed spelling] Hyundai sports car; 300 plus and 3.8 liter. That's a very different story from them. We'll look for it in Spring '09. ^M00:01:04 [ Music ] ^M00:01:10
