2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 GT on the track
This is footage of me track-testing the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 GT
on the Driver Development Track at Mosport International Raceway in
Ontario, Canada. Shot between 2 and 3 PM on a cloudy, overcast day with the
threat of thunderstorms. Fortunately, it missed us to the southeast and,
with most of my fellow scribes having left the track early (again? - wtf,
really?), that meant more track time for me. Thanks, eh. And, special
thanks to Hyundai Canada for hosting this fun day at "...one of my
favourite little stretches of ripe, driving, track-ness..." Sadly, I'm no
Tiff Needell. But I try.
TESTED: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0t & 3.8 by DSPORT (1080HD)
First look at the refreshed 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe by DSPORT magazine.
"The 3.8-liter Lambda DOHC V6 engine adds sophisticated direct-injection
technology, adding 42 horsepower (a generous 14
percent increase) and 29 lb.-ft of torque (an eleven percent increase).
rises to 348 at 6,400 RPM, with peak torque increasing to 295 lb.-ft. at
5,300 RPM on premium fuel. In addition, lambda-engine anti-knock technology
gives this V6 the versatility to run on regular fuel. This new
direct-injected engine will easily propel the Genesis Coupe from zero to 60
mph in the lower five-second range on its way to an impressive 149 mph
electronically-limited top speed.
Not to be outdone by its bigger brother, the turbocharged, intercooled 2.0-liter DOHC inline
four-cylinder substitutes a new twin-scroll design for its turbocharger in addition to a larger Intercooler with enhanced thermal
efficiency. The twin-scroll design is more efficient at recovering Exhaust energy and produces cooler cylinder
temperatures than the former single-scroll design. In addition, the
twin-scroll is more precise, with improved combustion efficiency, reduced
turbo lag, leaner air/fuel ratios and
more evenly distributed pressure in the Exhaust ports, resulting in simultaneous power,
efficiency and emissions improvements. Also, a 53 percent larger Intercooler further reduces intake
temperatures, providing denser, cooler air from which to develop even more
This turbocharged engine also benefits
from Dual CVVT on both intake and Exhaust camshafts. The 2.0-liter turbo now generates 274 horsepower (a massive 30
percent increase) and 275 lb.-ft. of torque (an impressive 23 percent
increase) on premium fuel. And, unlike many competitive turbo engines, this turbo's anti-knock sensors automatically adjust
ignition timing and engine mapping to run perfectly on regular fuel,
yielding 260 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and
260 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,000 RPM. The turbo engine also features a cast-aluminum
cylinder block and cylinder head. All these improvements give the Genesis
Coupe 2.0T a power-to-weight ratio of 12.3, superior to the upcoming Scion
FR-S sports coupe and the Honda Civic Si.
2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T Start up, Exterior, Interior, 2nd Start, Engine, Pictures
Today i give you a 2012 Hyundai Genesis. I think the 10-12 look better than
the 13's. This one ia probably one of the last few in Canada still for
sale. These seats in these things are really supportive and bolstering is
excellent. I would try a Mustang or a Camaro first before getting one
of these first.. Price of this is $32,000. Well i'd like to thank you for
watching my Hyundai Genesis Coupe indepth tour video, Thanks and stay
tuned! And this video layout is starting to be my new video layout so yeah!
I do a second start for you guys and i include pictures at the end of the
