Default HKS Genesis Coupe!

The genesis Coupe is one the most anticipated car this side of the world. Its billed as the cheapest RWD car that looks good and has decent power. And this HKS version shows the possibilities of how it can look!

Sort of looks like a cross between the Audi TT, Nissan 350Z and the Toyota Supra

If they'd had a longer rear, they'd probably invite more customers!

This is actually a very sexy car. The Genesis is actually a wonderful car let down by the Hyundai name.

This Coupe though will force many to rethink their purchase decisions!

Wasn't this supposed to be a replacement for the Tiburon?
Looks sharp! Reminds me of the Acura RSX for some reason.

Apparently not. This is more upmarket (and bigger) than the Tiburon.

This is positioned against the luxo coupes that generally have a short rear.

Thanks for the clarification,Mohit. I think there were speculations on the Genesis replacing the Tiburon,when the spy pics were released.
If I remember right,the Genesis has a V6 315bhp engine.
