Hyundai's two-door stunner

2008-03-19 08:35
Hyundai's stunning new rear-wheel drive two-door coupe is being unveiled at the New York Motor Show. The production model closely tracks the Genesis Coupe concept shown at November 2007's Los Angeles Motor Show and shows off similar bonnet lines and a dipped window line.

The rear-wheel drive coupe is largely based on Hyundai?s new Genesis sedan unveiled in Korea this year, with which it shares a platform, engines and gearboxes.

The base model will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine and top-of-the-range models will feature a 3.8-litre V6. The sedan's 4.6-litre V8 is expected to join the line-up at a later stage.

All cars will be fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with options of five- or six-speed automatics.

The 2+2 seater's interior has a futuristic centre hangdown with a large LCD display and a pod design for the instrument cluster.

The Genesis Coupe is being aimed mainly at the US and Korean markets, but could become available in right-hand drive for UK buyers.
