2.Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 R-Spec $26,500/$28,750 w/V6
Hyundai‘s Genesis Coupe has proven itself in a few unconventional ways. It competes in Formula Drift and at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with Rhys Millen in the drivers seat. Obviously Millen’s Genesis is heavily modified to compete, but Hyundai offers some trims of its Genesis Coupe that can handle the occasional track days.
The R-Spec trim is available with both engines offered on the Genesis Coupe. It’s only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, and includes goodies that are really appreciated on the track like a Torsen limited slip differential, and four-piston vented Brembo brakes.
The R-Spec models are also slightly lighter than other Genesis trims, mainly due to the lack of frills like a sunroof and navigation system. It’s a pretty nice package for those looking to get to the track on a budget especially with the four-cylinder engine that puts out 274-hp. For those looking for power to challenge the Japanese sports cars, the 3.8L V6 makes almost 350-hp and produces a wonderful sound when taken to the limit, a product of the car’s sporty intentions.
