Having spent a week in the Hyundai Tiburon recently, I came to one conclusion, although it is a brilliant looking car, it can do with more power and a rear-wheel-drive setup. Thankfully the engineers at Hyundai agree! Say hello to the new Hyundai Rear-Wheel-Drive Tubrocharged Coupe:
Details are sketchy so far but reports from Korea indicate two engine choices, a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with around 160kWs and a 3.8-litre V6 with around 206kWs.
Fortunately the new Tiburon will be, for the first time, rear-wheel-drive! Not only will the Tiburon become the new 200SX, but it most likely skyrocket Hyundai into the serious performance car league!
Reports also suggest the RWD Coupe will be larger than the current Tiburon, estimated to be roughly equivalent to the new Nissan Skyline (G35 Coupe). It will feature a start button, 19″ wheels plus the option for brembo brakes. As you can see from the picture below, the rotors appear gigantic!
Release date is expected around early to mid next year with a the possibility for an Australian arrival within 12 months from then.
