Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Brian Lam and I are here on the floor of the LA Convention Center waiting for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe to…oh there it goes. Once my eyes adjusted to the metal-flake, nuclear-sunrise orange initial impressions were RSX headlights on a Lexus IS wedge. Of course, the special thing is that Hyundai promises the coupe to be the cheapest 300HP RWD sports car ever, not just out of Seoul — we’ll see if it’ll beat a Mustang in pricing. The Viper-esque hood vents and carbon fiber bits won’t make it to final for costs obviously, but the thought is certainly nice. The shapely triangle window, fifth relative of custom van glass, is staying.
