2009 SEMA Show: Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-SpecParing back the Genesis Coupe for tuners saves 68 pounds and $3,000.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> If you walk around the [inaudible] Show this year, you find out two things really quickly. Number one, the hottest car on the floor is the Camero. Number two, about the second hottest is the Hyundai Genesis. Here's the wildest one on the floor that Hyundai's trotted out. It's been all hotted up by Reese Millen [assumed spelling], but one thing that it doesn't have is an engine, at least not in the front. They moved it sort of rear mid-ships, and they changed it a little bit. It's not the four. It's not the V6. It's a Hyundai 4.6-liter towel V8 that's been all blown up. This is a very different take on the Genesis. Okay, let's get serious. Here's a Genesis Coupe that might be more your speed. This is going into production. This is the Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec. The R-Spec's the new part. The "R" mostly stands for removed. They took a bunch of stuff out this car to make it more cost effective for the person who's going to just customize it anyway, and/or to make it a lighter, more agile track car. It's an approach Porsche has taken with, like, the RS America, for example. In addition to saving $3,000.00 over a Coupe 2.0 Track, they also save 68 pounds worth of stuff like power sunroof, Bluetooth, power driver's seat, kiss good-bye to the Infinity premium audio, the trip computer, audio and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel, etcetera. ^M00:01:24 [ Music ]
