2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec revealed

Without a doubt one of the most exciting models in the Hyundai range is the stunning Genesis Coupe.

Even though it’s been on the market since last year, the South Korean company wants to keep it interesting, and has just revealed a special, more hardcore version of the car.

As such, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec is, like its name suggests, based on the 3.8-liter V6 edition, and adds the R-Spec package previously only available for the 2.0-liter Turbo version.

The power output is the same, 306 HP from the V6, and the same six-speed manual gearbox is present. Besides that though, the R-Spec brings a lot of new upgrades. First off, we have 19-inch wheels, housing Brembo brakes, then we have a stiffer suspension coupled with a limited-slip differential and, last but not least, sports seats. As you can image R-Spec badges are also standard.

Those that don’t want this hardcore version will be pleased to hear that all 2011 model year Genesis Coupe cars will benefit from a revised interior, using new materials, as well as softer leather for the steering wheel and chrome accents for the gear knob.

The new revised 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will go on sale later this year.

    It is a serious rear wheel drive version which gives a good established power and performance, more than its price.
