Hyundai Super Car in the Making?

Published by on Jul 12th, 2011, No Comments

Rumors are swirling around the stables of South Korean automaker Hyundai. And, in fact, it is a super rumor about the car maker cooking up a super car. The vehicle will come with a power train of all-aluminum Tao 5.0-liter V8 –  that’s something  akin to what is now powering the Genesis R-Spec. The cost is estimated to be between $80,000 and $100,000.

If the rumblings are to be taken to face value, this coupe will compete with some extraordinary machines on the road, like the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911. It is also being said that the front engine and mid-engine designs are under consideration.

An updated edition of the 4.6-liter V8 boosted by direct injection and a higher compression ratio is what the car will bring along with it. The type of injection the supercar will use is still being debated.

Some feel that it would be a six-speed, while others think it could be a twin-clutch auto-manual.

We are still waiting to hear more from the carmaker on that.
