HKS Hyundai Genesis Coupe

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show starts November 4 in Las Vegas, and the folks at Hyundai have given us a sneak peek at one of the company's Genesis Coupes that will be on display. Built by noted turbo tuner HKS, this dramatic-looking rear-drive Genesis Coupe is fitted with the company's GT Turbo upgrade kit, which teams with upgraded engine internals and a revised exhaust to make the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine produce excellent power, perhaps as much as 300 bhp.

Do you like the look of the car? We do too. The functional ground-effect body was designed by Ken Style, and the aggressive low attitude is made possible by HKS Hipermax III fully adjustable suspension.

That's about all Hyundai will tell us for now; we'll learn more at the SEMA show in November. The production Genesis Coupe arrives at dealers in the spring of 2009, as a 2010 model. Why do we have to wait for so long?
