2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R-Spec: Details and Pricing Information

By Automotive Staff | September 16, 2010
Fans of the Genesis coupe will be please to learn that Hyundai has released details of the decidingly sportier R-Spec version. To enhance handling response, a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts will be installed at the dealer on all 3.8 R-Spec Genesis Coupes. No 3.8 R-Spec will be equipped with automatic headlights, cruise control, or interior accents. A weight-adding sunroof and spoiler are also removed. Available only with a six-speed manual transmission, of course, the 3.8 R-Spec model includes a choice of four colors Hyundai says are most common among international race teams: Karussell Whilte, Bathurst Black, Interlagos Yellow, and Tsukuba Red. If you like the R-Spec but don't need the 306-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6, the $25,300 2.0T R-Spec might be a better fit. A retuned suspension, Brembo brakes, limited-slip differential and 19-inch wheels are part of the deal. On other Genesis Coupe four-cylinders, opting for the five-speed automatic will cost $1250. On the six-cylinder models, a six-speed automatic costs $1500. The entry-level Genesis Coupe with a 210-horsepower turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine sees a price increase of $300 over last year, to $23,050. At the top of the Genesis Coupe 2.0T lineup now sits the Premium, which comes standard with a navigation system and automatic temperature control and has a price identical to that of the 3.8 R-Spec. The four-cylinder Track model is gone. All 2011 prices include an $800 destination charge. via Hyundai courtesy of Motor Trend Staff
