Hyundai RWD Coupe gets 300hp
Car Magazine caught the Hyundai Coupe testing somewhere in America. The next-gen model is quite a different beast from today’s compact, slick-looking, affordable two-door, and is powered by a 3.6 liter V8 engine that boosts 300 hp. Serious competition for the Nissan 350Z!
Hyundai will offer a 2.0-litre turbo as well, which would be the big seller here naturally. The decision on whether to import the rear-drive Coupe will be taken this autumn; if it gets the go-ahead, expect a European launch at the 2008 London Motor Show.
The Hyundai RWD Coupe will be unveiled as a concept form at the New York Auto Show and the US production version will be launched at Detroit 2008.
