Hyundai Genesis 4.6 full throttle into left turn (ESC disabled still engages)
Hyundai Genesis 4.6 does 0-60 in 5.3 seconds (Car and Driver)Trying to break tires loose around the 2nd turn, but the ESC on the "off" position still interferes and rear brakes are applied. That was a good 2 seconds of foot-to-the-floor after the tire squeal from braking and couldn't unleash the beast....ESC. Even the twin-turbo V-12 Brabus Mercedes SL has the same issue. I'm sure it's to protect the drivetrain. Traction control "off" is still enabled to a degree. Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dfff-s2OMc

CHECK OUT THE HYUNDAI VS. LEXUS SMACKDOWN: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=130686?tid=e dmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* It's almost hard to write: Lexus vs. Hyundai. That's the New York Yankees taking on the Albuquerque Isotopes - same game, different leagues. It's pitting an exalted brand name to which millions aspire, up against the bargain brand millions settle for. And yet despite that, putting the 2008 Lexus GS 350 up against Hyundai's audacious new 2009 Genesis 4.6 in a luxury sedan throw-down has resulted in one of the closest finishes ever in an Inside Line heads-up comparison test. Yes, the Hyundai Genesis holds its own quite well against the Lexus GS 350 - without all that pesky prestige.
