Now that Hyundai has taken the reins from Toyota as the biggest Asian automaker in Europe, the Korean auto manufacturer is looking to build on that momentum by having the best auto tuners in the world take a stab at dressing up their vehicles.
Presented at the Essen Motor Show, the Mansory-dressed Genesis Coupe’s styling has been improved – and that’s saying something considering the sports coupe is already a looker in its own right.
Among the additions the tuning firm put on the Genesis Coupe include new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and even a carbon rear wing. The sportster also gets a new front spoiler lip and a rear diffuser that comes with a new hexagonal exhaust pipe that firmly entrenches the stunning new look of an already awesome-looking sports car.

Not done there, Mansory also gave the Genesis Coupe a set of 20” and 21” black wheels that add a nice complementary touch to the white exterior paint finish. As for the Genesis Coupe’s interior, Mansory’s work includes putting in Recaro seats and a new Pioneer audio system.
There’s something to be said about a tuning firm that did less with more and certainly, Mansory’s work on the Genesis Coupe is living proof of that. The package doesn’t come with any performance upgrades so the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 214 horsepower remains unchanged.
There’s no denying that we would’ve preferred that Mansory worked on the 3.8-liter 308 horsepower range-topping version of the Genesis Coupe, but that’s not our decision to make. Either way, their work on this Genesis Coupe should not go understated; it looks totally awesome.
