That is one stripped down track car if i ever saw one. And it'll go like stink, HKS is one of the best tuner companies around

My question is, who are they targeting? The tuners have very little left to do. And people who want outright performance wouldn't want a Hyundai. It's a single seater non air conditioned racer.

They haven't mentioned any performance figures on the website though.

The Genesis Coupe stock though looks hot. Wish they'd bring THAT here

And here's some fun. The folks of Hyundai have given us a little comparison to make us poor people feel better

This is just a one-off to lure sports car buyers. Hyundai coupe can work well just like the tiburon did with a cheap tag.
Sell this with a diesel in India, I say.
