Hyundai has just announced that the tuner-friendly Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec model will be priced at just $26,750. That’s a $4,000 discount over the 3.8 Track model and is the same price as the Premium-trim 2.0T model.

Sporting all the goodies from the Track package but without the more luxurious options, the 3.8 R-Spec is ideal for boy races and tuners. Included in the R-Spec model are high-performance Brembo brakes, a limited slip differential, stiffer springs and shocks, 19-inch wheels and an adjustable camber setup. It’s also 68 lbs lighter than the current base model V6 thanks to the “decontenting” of features like auto headlights, cruise control, a sunroof and certain interior and exterior accents.

PRESS RELEASE

HYUNDAI ANNOUNCES 2011 GENESIS COUPE R-SPEC PRICING

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., 09/14/2010 – The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R-Spec priced at $26,750 will arrive at dealerships across the country this fall. R-Spec takes the core performance equipment from the 3.8 Track model and eliminates non-essential convenience equipment to reduce its weight by 68 pounds and price by $4,000. The 3.8 R-Spec allows enthusiasts to use that $4,000 to tune their own car to their desired specifications.

The 3.8 R-Spec is now the most affordable 3.8-liter V6 model in the Genesis Coupe lineup. R-Spec performance features include track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance summer tires, Brembo® braking system, Torsen® limited-slip differential and R-Spec badging. To achieve the $4,000 savings R-Spec 3.8 eliminates metalgrain accents, automatic headlights, cruise control and chrome interior accents. Shoppers will not find a sunroof or rear spoiler on an R-Spec. In a special nod to tuners, R-Spec will also receive a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts (dealer installation required) to further enhance initial turn-in and handling response. Appropriately, the 3.8 R-Spec will be available in four exterior colors most common among international racing teams: Karussell White, Bathurst Black, Interlagos Yellow and Tsukuba Red. R-Spec comes with manual transmission only.

The Genesis Coupe lineup has also been simplified to six well-differentiated models. Navigation with Fully Automatic Temperature Control is now standard on Genesis Coupe 2.0T Premium.
