2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: R-Spec Model Announced, Coupe's Pricing Starts from $22,000

|
At the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, Hyundai not only announced pricing for its Genesis Coupe, but the Korean automaker also announced a new 'trimmed down' version of its rear-wheel-drive sportscar called "R-Spec". The latter is based on the 210HP 2.0-liter Turbo version of the Genesis Coupe and it is designed to appeal to enthusiasts who want a low starting price and the ability to tune their car to their own specifications.

When the Genesis Coupe begins to arrive at Hyundai dealerships later in the month, $22,000 will get you into a fairly well-equipped 210-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine 2.0T model while $25,000 is the asking price for a base, 306-horsepower, 3.8-liter, V6 engine model.

The Genesis Coupe R-Spec that is priced at $23,750 or $3,000 less than the 2.0T Track model, adds a series of performance orientated goodies such as track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance summer tires, Brembo braking system, Torsen limited-slip differential, and R-Spec badging.

In order to keep the price low and at the same time, reduce weight, Hyundai eliminated some non-essential comfort features like the Bluetooth, automatic headlights, cruise control, trip computer, chrome interior accents and steering wheel audio controls. The R-Spec will be available in three exteriors colors: Karussell White, Bathurst Black and Tsukuba Red.

Looks very nice (a bit like the Lexus IS)

Prices are up considerably from previous CARSCOOP figures.
Depression realities and competition from Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger V-6's & V-8's will bring that down to affordable pricing at the dealer.
With a nod to my old 'SVO' Mustang I will take a 6-Speed 2.0T 'Track' model in 'Catch Me If You Can Red'. Plenty of power and better handling.

Hope it drives as good as it looks.

I feel like Hyundai is getting ahead of themselves. They got one nice design/car with their genesis, and now they think they can just make a coupe. But it's ugly (like most hyundais), and doesn't really relate design-wise to the genesis sedan.

No cruse control, Bluetooth, trip computer, plastic chrome, or audio controls? To reduce weight my foot. Might aswell get rid of that automatic trans. If they are so concerned about weight. Anyone else think it looks like an Infiniti G?

its Hot!

they have been working on it ...like the manhatten project....its 220hp with premium...i tune and i'm sure aouther 50 hp is inn htere.., brembo...and if you change out the tires i'm sure it will handle with the best of them..slalom isn't everything.

and at 23k......It looks better than a 370 z and thw G35...cleaner lines..

Hyundai hit a home run....coupe /sedan/....it much to do about nothing...same plateform..which is outstanding for under 70k dollar range.
