2007 Hyundai Genesis Coupe ConceptBy Alan • Send This To A Friend
The new Coupe that Hyundai plans to release in 2009 was presented recently at the LA Auto Show and it’s absolutely stunning.
“Concept Genesis Coupe is the most thrilling, most emotional Hyundai yet” said John Krafcik, vice president, product development and strategic planning, Hyundai Motor America. “When it hits the market in early 2009, we aim to deliver a driving experience that challenges cars like Infiniti G37, at prices more like Mitsubishi Eclipse”
“The mission for Concept Genesis Coupe was to create a pure performance car with a design that would capture the imagination of hardcore automotive enthusiasts” said Joel Piaskowski, chief designer at the Hyundai Design Center in Irvine, Calif. “With its aggressive look from just about any angle, I think we have been able to do that.”
The look of Concept Genesis Coupe was in part inspired by Le Mans race cars, drifters and by Jada Toys Dub City die cast vehicles and it has a carbon fiber hood and roof, which reduces the weight considerably.
