Car manufacturers today seem to be interested in making their products compete with faster things, or living beings if we consider Ronaldo’s race against Bugatti which was recorded some four years ago (this video has over 21 million hits on YouTube. Earlier this week, BMW had released a M5 video (which has now garnered over a million hits on YouTube within 48 hours) in which the car itself acts as a bullet. Hyundai too has launched a similar ad for their all new Genesis Coupe. In the video, Hyundai Genesis Coupe is seen competing one on one with an arrow shot by a professional archer.
The base model of Hyundai Genesis Coupe will be fitted with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine offering total output of 274 hp and peak torque of 275 lb/ft. Those desirous of even better power and performance can opt for the 3.8 liter Lambda DOHC V6 unit which will come with 348 hp at 6400 rpm and 295 lb/ft torque. This engine will be mated to a six speed manual or eight speed automatic transmission engine.
Genesis Coupe 3.8R-Spec obviously is more powerful and has a higher level of fuel efficiency than its predecessor. There is marked improvement in handling and braking departments as well while the vehicle is fitted with enhanced technology such as Bluetooth, hands free calling, USB, iPod connectivity, Brembo brakes and wireless audio. Prices for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe will begin at $24,250 for the base model while the 3.8 R-Spec will be available for $28,750.
