2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec | 2009 Chicago Auto Show | Edmunds.com

MORE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/chicago/2009/2010hyundaigenesiscouperspec.html Rear-wheel drive, a six-speed manual transmission, 210 horses from a turbocharged four-cylinder, Brembo brakes and a limited-slip differential - and it's only $23,750. If you don't see the appeal of these features and this price, then you aren't the target buyer for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec. Hyundai was looking to attract the biggest group of enthusiasts it could with this version of the Genesis, so it started with the base model, stripped out a few standard features to reduce costs and save weight, then added in some of the performance hardware from the top-of-the-line V6 model. So choosing the R-Spec means no Bluetooth, cruise control or steering-wheel audio controls. Hyundai also deleted the chrome interior trim and onboard trip computer. Once that cost was taken out, features like 19-inch alloy wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE050A summer performance tires (225/40R19 front, 245/40R19 rear) could be added back in. The R-Spec also gets a sport suspension with retuned springs and dampers along with front (25mm) and rear (22mm) sway bars and a strut tower brace. The upgraded Brembo brakes feature four-piston fixed calipers at each wheel, and the ventilated rotors measure 13.4 inches in front and 13 inches in back. The limited-slip differential is a Torsen unit if you care to know. Hyundai didn't strip every feature out of this Genesis coupe. You still get basic stuff like power windows, keyless entry and air-conditioning. There's a six-speaker audio system with a dedicated iPod hookup and leather-wrapped steering wheel, too.

Hi-Res Videos: http://www.hulu.com/edmunds-in side-line Our 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track is painted Bathurst Black. That's Bathurst as in Bathurst 1000, a 620-mile (1,000-km) race on Australia's Mount Panorama Circuit, a 3.9-mile road course with 23 turns, grades of up to 16 percent and a 1.2-mile-long straightaway named Conrod Straight after a spectacular engine failure endured by racer Frank Kleinig in 1939. Only heavily modified Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores in the V8 Supercar series (Australia's take on NASCAR) race at Bathurst today, so there's no obvious connection to the unassuming black clearcoat on our V6-equipped 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track. But as we drive the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, we can imagine Hyundai's chassis engineers fine-tuning the ride and handling of their first rear-wheel-drive coupe on the demanding Bathurst circuit. Probably the cost constraints of building a $30,000 car don't allow for working holidays Down Under. Yet the 2010 Genesis Coupe isn't some soggy two-door version of the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan. Instead you'll find a very capable chassis underneath the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track's arresting bodywork. Hyundai's sport coupe might not be track-ready out of the box, but it doesn't wither when we pitch it into Bathurst-like turns on lumpy two-lane roads.
