Hyundai has revealed the first pictures of its Genesis Coupe which the South Korean manufacturer believes has pushed it into supercar territory for the first time.
The two door coupe will be powered by a choice of two performance-focused petrol engines – a 221bhp 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder and a range-topping all-aluminium 308bhp, DOHC 3.8-litre V6.
The Genesis Coupe is scheduled to join the Hyundai lineup in South Korea and North America early in 2009, and may come to Britain in limited numbers later next year.
Tony Whitehorn, managing director of Hyundai UK, said: "The Genesis Coupe is further proof that Hyundai’s engineers are capable of producing cars which can match or better anything produced in Japan, Europe or America.
"We would love to be able to bring this amazing car to the UK, and are keeping a close eye on public reaction to see if there is demand from British driving enthusiasts."
