About Hyundai Genesis Coupe
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is an RWD sports coupe manufactured by Hyundai Motor Company. The Genesis Coupe went on sale in the United States on February 26, 2009. Hyundai's acting general manager for the United States described the Genesis Coupe as a vehicle designed to offer a driving experience on par with the Infiniti G37. Speculation about possible engines for the new coupe ranged from the turbocharged four-cylinder shown to the Tau V8 engine Hyundai developed for the luxury Genesis. Before the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto Show, images of an open-top silver Hyundai Genesis Coupe and a silver Ford Mustang that could compete with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe leaked on the Internet. The production Hyundai Genesis Coupe was unveiled at the 2008 New York International Auto Show, where red and silver models were on display. The unveiling was accompanied by a demonstration of the Powerslide and Burnout Coupe features. The North American models went on sale in spring 2009 as 2010 models.
Standard equipment includes keyless entry, steering-wheel audio, Bluetooth hands-free, tire pressure monitoring, and cruise control. The 2.0T Premium and 3.8 Grand Touring models also include a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, keyless entry with push-button start, power-adjustable driver's seat, and heated front seats. The 3.8 Grand Touring is the only model with brown leather instead of black and ultrasonic rear parking sensors. The 3.8 Grand Touring also comes with front fog lamps. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe for the North American market is similar to the Korean version. But it has a stiffer suspension for Americans. Hyundai Canada offers keyless entry on all V6 models, push-button start, or side mirrors on 3.8L models. There is no spoiler on 2.0T or V6 models.

The RM460 is a Genesis coupe built by the Rhys Millen Racing team, powered by a 4.6-liter V8 engine sourced from the Hyundai Taun.

The Millen V8 engine uses mostly stock parts and has an initial displacement of 5.0 liters. Millen and the Genesis Coupe set a new record for an all-wheel-drive production vehicle at Pikes Peak in June 2011. Genesis becomes the first car to run worldwide. Reece Millen sets a new Time Attack 2WD record in the same Genesis Coupe.
In response to criticism from reviewers and vehicle owners about the quality of materials, Hyundai has significantly improved the quality of materials on the new model. New features include a leather handbrake grip, plasma-coated air filter, optional red leather upholstery, LED trim above the fog lamps, and LED taillights. The Genesis Coupe was originally available in 10 different colors. Reactions to the new Genesis Coupe have been mixed. Edmunds called the 3.8 R-Spec the most exciting vehicle in Hyundai's lineup. They also praised the improved transmission, engine, and suspension. In Grand Ouest configuration, they clocked a time of 3:13.9 minutes at VIR. That's 0.1 seconds slower than the 306 hp 2011 Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec and slower than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Ford Mustang V6, Chevrolet Cobalt SS, and Nissan NISMO 370Z.
