Earlier, this week saw a some spy shots appearing the radically face lifted Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Hyundai today on its Facebook page already posted three full images.

The nose is by Hyundai with their Fluidic Sculpture Design philosophy and seems a bit like the Velo Star. Is that bad? For me at all! It may look a bit wild, but a much more attractive than the original Genesis Coupe.


Under the hood we still find a 3.8 liter V6 with a 2.0 four-cylinder  turbo. The V6 will be as many as 330 + hp squeezing instead of 300 + hp. Switching is done with a gearbox or an automatic.

Next Saturday will be the face lifted Hyundai Genesis Coupe unveiled during the Korean Speed ​​Festival.

The car world has and will produce electric models, as the Koreans do not escape. Indeed, the first electric Kia will be the end of this year emerge.

Earlier this week took place in Gwangju, Korea, the “Green Car Symposium ‘, with the Hyundai Motor Group was also present. They reported that Hyundai and Kia, respectively, in the second half of 2015 and the first half of 2014 with compact EVs will come as part of their ‘Green Car Leading Global Strategy. ” However, still well before the light comes Kia CUV segment at the end of this year with a box-size EV.  Much is still not known, but he has the project name TAM.


It is obvious that it is a variant on the Naimo concept earlier this year, a more realistic effect of the silly concept of PDP.

Hyundai itself has in the past elektrowaggies to DIY: if we know the electric i10,  and run a small test fleet of BlueOn’s around here on epic image archive with the Korean President.

TAM, based on Kia’s small model (Picanto? Rio?) approaching so mass production, Kia will be the end of 2012 more than 2,000 produced.

Put your hat on your head tilted it down, and let those hard beats pumping out of your speakers: about a month make the men of their hard-ARK Performance gesjonnieficeerde Velo Star for the SEMA in Las Vegas.

Yep, it’s almost that time again: the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is hard again this year, from the Nevada desert. Prepare for the rims more expensive than your house (50 Cent pays ca $ h , like a true baller), very scantily clad chicks with a ten-journey with Robert Schumacher, and of course completely pimped cars, including Hyundai’s.

And this Flosser is all show and no go : thanks a turbo on the 1.6 block increases the standard output of 140 bhp to over 210 ponies. That is still far from 500 as in the Velo Star, but this is a rallybak. But let this happen now 210 horsepower as much as the rumors about the turbocharged 1.6 GDI Hyundai that next year will enter the market itself.
