The highlight of the exhibit was its new sports car, Genesis Coupe which made its Korean debut.
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe made its world debut at the recent New York Auto Show impressing most of the attending press with both the looks and its rubber burning entrance. And in our never ending quest to bring our readers the most accurate local news from all over the world, we bring you the Korean debut of Hyundai's brand new Genesis Coupe.
The car is painted poison green but the Hyundai display stands out in a few ways other than the vibrant color choice of the show piece. The Hyundai stand also featured a new 2.0 liter THETA I-4 twin turbo GDI engine capable of putting 290 hp to the road, only 13 hp less than its poison green big brother with the 3.8 liter V6, reports GenFans.com. Whether the engine is production ready or if it will ever leave the Korean peninsula is not mentioned in the official press release.
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe will go on sale in Korea this September, followed by the US, Chain and other regions where it will take on cars like the Audi TT, Infiniti G37, BMW 3 series and Mercedes C Class.
