2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec gets priced

A few months ago, Hyundai revealed that for the 2011 model year, its Genesis Coupe will be getting a more hardcore edition, dedicated to those that want to personally customize their own rear-wheel drive sports car.

The 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec has now officially been detailed and priced, and it’s quite an interesting pitch.

For $26,750 (not including the $800 destination charge), you will be getting the 306 HP 3.8-liter V6 with a manual transmission. That’s the price that you would normally pay for a Premium spec 2.0-liter Genesis Coupe, and the cheapest V6 in the range.

Still, you will be getting some features from the Track spec, including sports suspension, Brembo brakes and a Torsen limited-slip differential. You won’t be getting luxuries like automatic headlights, cruise control, sunroof, a rear spoiler or chrome accessories though. But the less features, the better, as the R-Spec is 68 pounds lighter than the Track one.

Expect the 2011 Hyundai Genesis R-Spec to arrive in dealerships in the following months.

    Looks good and has a great spec; if $26,750 translates to £26,750 (ie approx 50% more than the US) here in the UK – it beats me why we get charged so much more in the UK! – then I can see it being remarkably popular…
