However, Hyundai is planing a new offensive. The Korean automotive producer has just introduced a revision for the vehicle, along with a new “go-fast” model that comes to offer an interesting list of tech upgrades without adding unnecessary stuff.
No, the car has not received the expected 5.0 liter V8 yet, but it has been fitted with the next best thing. The 306 hp 3.8 liter V6 model can now be ordered with an R-Spec package (just like the one offered for the 2.0 turbo version). The main “go-fast” features brought by the kit are 19 inch gunmetal finish alloy rims, a Brembo braking system, sport suspension and a Torsen-type limited slip differential. The pack, which can only be ordered with the six speed manual gearbox, also comes with multiple equipment upgrades.
All the models in the 2011 Genesis Coupe range get an interior that offers new trimming, using a matte-finish and dark metal-grain accents for multiple elements, as well as new leather for the steering wheel and a Chrome finish for certain elements.
Hyundai likes to use as many words as possible for telling the 2011 Genesis Coupe story. If this rings you any bells, you can check out the attached PDF file for the full release.
