Hyundai RWD V8?

Wow Hyundai going RWD with V8 option in a car. Never would have thunk it.
I know they have the Tiboron RWD though. This is the first V8 in a Hyundai I think. V6 is 3.8 and V8 is 4.6 trans is 6-Speed Automatic.
they will also have a coupe

Spy Shots: Hyundai Genesis interior


"The Hyundai Genesis is one of many highly anticipated vehicles for calendar year 2008, with high-end features like RWD and powerful V6 and V8 engines at a Hyundai price. One area of intrigue for the Genesis is the production interior, and the folks over at KGP snapped some very clear shots that leave little to the imagination. The most interesting item in the picture looks like the Audi MMI control with navigation buttons around a joy stick. The interface actually looks a bit classier than that of the much pricier German luxury car, and we're hoping it works much more like the Audi interface than iDrive.

The center console looks very Infiniti M45-like, with a chunky appearance and a sloping line with a protruding lip that separates the navigation screen from the rest of the controls. The shift lever has a manual mode, which is almost a forgotten technology in the age of the paddle shifter. The steering wheel is adorned in both leather and a wood-like substance, and it appears to have very simple redundant controls, plus a button for hands-free calling.

The interior wars are heating up much like the wonderful battle for powertrain supremacy, and customers again are the winners. While the Genesis interior may not look as nice as that of the 2008 CTS, try to remember that we're talking about a Hyundai. The folks from South Korea have come a long way in a very short period of time. "

Am I the only one that see the Slant-eyes as the headlights? That made me giggle.

LOL @ slant eyes.


Ever notice that every Foreign car manufacturer has a V8 in the stable if they want to be taken seriously in the SUV and performance/luxury game.

Something to ask the ricer guys.

It looks like the Camaro will have a little more to fight off than Dodge and Ford. If you can even call that slanty-thing 'competition'.

I don't know if that car would be cosidered Camaro copetition but I am sure that the 2 door version could be. I myself am still not a fan of the car. Would this be considered a pony/muscle car?

Wow..to me that center stack is way too slanted forward and that handbrake is too close to the seat. That also looks too small to be a V8 RWD :O.

As far as 4 door RWD cars goes Ford has a car coming from Ford Australia that I am sure will go up agaist this car and the G8 and the Impala its the Ford Falcon. I think its going to be a bit redesigned though. I think they are going to have a few more RWDs too.
