Hyundai in Germany have announced a very limited edition GT version of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

15440578712043294844

Just fifty units only will be made available to Hyundai dealers in Germany.

Inspiration for Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe GT emanates from the Schuhmann Motor Sport Team who prepared and raced a Genesis Coupe at this year’s 24 Hour Nurburgring race.

Lurking under the bonnet of the Genesis Coupe is a 3.8 litre lambda V6 developing 223 kW and 361 Nm of torque with a 0-100km/h sprint time in a claimed 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 240km/h. CarAdvice has driven the Coupe on the twisty roads outside of Seoul and can testify as to its superb handling characteristics and penchant for drifting. According to Hyundai engineers the current Genesis Coupe has a 24% stiffer bending rigidity than the BMW E46 M3 - impressive, to say the least.

 

While there are no changes to the powertrain, the GT’s suspension has been lowered by 30 mm and tyres are Dunlop Sport Maxx GT on 19-inch lightweight alloys by OZ Wheels.

Prices for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe GT will start at €41,990 and again, the car is only available in Germany.

Given that Australia is likely to get the next generation Hyundai Genesis Coupe, would you like to see a few special editions?
