The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec is the latest version of the Genesis Coupe 2.0T Track that shuns non essential equipment like the Bluetooth, trip computer, chrome accents, cruise control, and the multifunction steering wheel — hence reducing the weight and the cost, making for a tuner-ready vehicle that allows owners to choose their own aftermarket additions.

Meant for a SEMA debut next week in Las Vegas, the Coupe 2.0T R-Spec gets a track-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes, a Torsen limited-slip differential and Summer performance tires on 19-inch alloys (gunmetal-finished). Under the hood is an intercooled 2.0L turbocharged four-banger capable of rendering 210hp and a top speed of 137mph. All these start at $23,750. [via Jalopnik]

Hyundai Genesis Coupe Specs

Published by on Oct 15th, 2008, 2 Comments

Do you remember the Hyundai Genesis Coupe Tuned by Rhys Millen Racing that was supposed to be a stand car at SEMA? Well, the company decided to go official with the specs. And I’m talking about the specs of the new Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

So here they are:

  1. Hyundai’s Theta 2.0-liter turbo that in Korea outputs 223 hp on premium fuel and 210 hp if it’s regular. The same engine will do 210hp @ 6000rpm with a peak torque is 299 Nm (220 lb-ft) @ 2,000rpm when marketed in the US. I wonder which one will be available in SA.
  2. 3.8-liter DOHC V6 Lambda RS engine that outputs with 310 hp on premium fuel and 306 on regular , with a peak torque to 361 Nm (266 lb-ft) @ 4,700rpm. It does 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 6.3 seconds

Hyundai expects to sell 40,000 Genesis Coupes annually, 5,000 in Korea and 35,000 in overseas markets. The price in Korea will be some $18,700 for the base model and may go up to $27,300. We’ll have to wait for it till the spring of 2009. – via WCF
