Interesting new car

Hyundai Concept Genesis

in 2008 the Hyundai Genesis should go on sale in the US, some interesting notes:
"The Korean company is taking a dead shot at Lexus and Infiniti, and if it can mix it up with BMW and Audi, all the better."

"Concept Genesis is powered by a newly developed dohc 32-valve 4.6-liter V-8 — officially named Tau — which Hyundai says will make “well over 300 bhp,” along with more than 300 lb.-ft. of torque; a ZF 6-speed automatic with Shiftronic manual ability "
"A limited-slip rear differential (not a standard feature on most cars in this class) and the car's 53/47 front/rear weight distribution"
"driver-selectable suspension settings should allow for comfortable around-town cruising, with sportier dynamics when the going gets twisty"
"a claimed 12-14 percent higher dynamic torsional rigidity (with also a lower body-in-white weight) than the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class."
"Neat features include adaptive cruise control, eight airbags, heated/cooled seats, HID headlamps with adaptive leveling and a navigation system with a backup camera. As with every Hyundai, one of the key selling points will be its bargain price. In this case, that means a starting price “well under $30,000.”


this might be one hell of a car for the money, it will be interesting, especially with a 100,000 mile warranty.

'03 Black Kawasaki Z1000, Muzzy Full 4:1 Exhaust, Mod'd Airbox with K&N, Tank and Tail Graphics, Freestreet Design Undertail, Ermax Belly Pan, HD Piston Case Sliders(custom),Puig Windscreen, Lightning Performance Frame Sliders.

Kinda reminds me of that movie "White Chicks". The rich girls are trying to slam on the other girls by saying, "Yeah, well your mom drives a 5 series BMW". If that's the way they think, what would they say about a Hyundai? But I'll tell you what, I wouldn't mind driving that car at all. Driving luxury with a bargain price AND a 100K mi warranty? I'm all about it.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

I'd drive it. starting price under $30k and intended to compete with the bigger japanese luxury cars? hell yeah. it doesnt even look too expensive, just a little upper middleclass.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

This is what my face looks like right now:

Thats the phattest car I have ever, ever seen. It deserves its own thread with a description, specs, engine work, everything. And many many pictures.


P.S. I'm all for Hyundai, I hope they come out with some awesome stuff and start kicking ass in the market.

Hyundais kinda got off to a bad start and they are still trying to shed the negative rep. I know a few friends you had tiburons that started on fire cause of bad electrical wiring. I almost bought one till that happened. Speaking of new cars finally broke down and bought a new one. Unfortunately it also used up the money for getting a bike again but since I have moved to CO I figured it was a better investment than a bike cause of the snow and such here.


my new baby is black though, 31k out the door fully loaded. Only problem is it wont be delivered for another month because the dealership had to order one that is a standard

Sweet ride, my friend. Those altima coupes look pretty sweet, and you save some cash over the infiniti. And to you for waiting for the stick. I will never own an automatic vehicle with any number of wheels in my life. Too much disconnection.

hehehe,,so many people love that car that I got made up. Yes, I still have her. I would never get rid of this thing if my life depended on it. I'd sell my house before selling this car.

Some fun facts about this B****

2006
Yes, it does have a Dinan in it http://www.performingimports.com/dinan.htm <--where I get a LOT of my engine stuff from
It took over $20,000 to get it this way
It made Hamann Motorsports website (now that it is completely modded out)
http://www.hamann-motorsport.com/index_start.php and http://www.hamann-motorsport.de/gale...up%E9-Renntaxi
Changed around the air-flow intake (it took me 2 months to do)
Been raced in Las Vegas and WON!
Custom interior work took $27,000 to do, and took 7 months to complete

^the 411 about the car (sorry it's in German, it's where the car is from).

Anything else about it, feel free to ask! *and no pissing of any sort of pants over this car heh*!

Peace luv and Jungle 4 eva!

If Hyundai decides to build a true luxury car the will most likely make a new nameplate for it just like all the japanese companies did when they introduced their own lines of luxury cars. In japan the luxury names dont exist. They knew they had to separate their vehicle's in America because we need that bling status label.
