Hyundai announced pricing today for its 2013 Genesis Coupes, both the 2.0-liter turbo version and the more powerful 3.8-liter R-Spec, which get serious power boosts over the previous model year.

The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder model is more expensive than the 2012, starting at $24,250 though it’s probably money well spent. That extra $2000 over last  year’s starting price buys you an impressive 60 extra horsepower when you use premium gas, thanks to direct injection in the refreshed engine.

If you can muster the extra $4,500 we would suggest going with the R-Spec model. It doesn’t get quite as dramatic of an increase as its four-banger little brother, but there’s still a considerable boost in play here. $28,750 puts you behind the wheel with 348 hp at your right foot’s command; a 42-hp jump over the 2012.

Fuel economy will probably improve in the automatics given that the company is trading up to an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters, though the six-speed manual is $1,250 less and the clear choice for enthusiasts.

A more aggressive look comes from the wide-open mouth, redesigned headlights and more chiseled body. A small rear spoiler also hints at the coupes’s new power.

Patience isn’t even all that necessary here, the new model year goes on sale next month, meaning you can probably bargain your way into a 2012 for a steal or sit pretty in the latest and greatest. The choice is yours.

Hyundai is set to finally debut the 2013 Genesis Coupe at next week’s 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and to stir up some excitement they’ve released a new teaser video for their next-generation sports coupe.

The teaser surprisingly reveals quite a bit of the new Genesis Coupe, albeit in actual bits and pieces rather than full car shots. Nonetheless, there aren’t any real surprises as to what it’ll look like after all the photos we’ve seen, but it’s nice to see more details on the newly revamped model. The 3.8 badge that’s also seen in the video proves that the new Genesis Coupe will be plenty potent with its Lambda V6 with 345-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

Check out the video after the break.

It’s been a fun ride waiting for Hyundai to officially reveal the 2013 Genesis Coupe, with spy photos to supposed Photoshop renders to teasers from Hyundai. And now the supposed Photoshop render has been proven to be the real deal, as Hyundai posted a trio of photos showing off the 2013 Genesis Coupe in all its glory.

No surprises yet with what will be under the hood, with Hyundai simply stating that a more powerful V6 engine will be under the hood. Oddly enough, the Hyundai Facebook post also claims that it’ll be a 2012 Genesis model but either way it’s obvious Hyundai has employed its Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy on the new Genesis Coupe.

For now we’ll still keep our fingers crossed that Hyundai engineers are taking notes from Rhys Millen Racing and finds a way to give consumers a Tau engine option for the new Genesis Coupe.

Last week we were treated with what was believed as a photoshop of the upcoming 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but now official photos have slipped out and it looks like the supposed photoshop wasn’t far off. Thanks to a teaser posted up on the Korean Hyundai blog, we can now get a much better look at the highly anticipated refreshed Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

Not much is a surprise, after seeing so many leaked photos and teasers of the new Genesis, but it’s nice to finally see it in its production flesh – with it’s Veloster-like snout.

The 2013 Genesis Coupe will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January and is expected to keep it’s two engine options, although with a significant bump in power. Look for the 2.0T engine to increase from 210-hp to 274-hp, while the 3.8-liter V6 should gain direct injection to offer 333-hp.

Despite being confirmed a Photoshop fake by Hyundai themselves to Jalopnik, we’re pretty confident that the production 2013 Hyundai Genesis will look very close to this render. We’ve already seen some spy shots here and here, which gives us reasons to believe that this Photoshop isn’t far off from the real thing.

Nonetheless, if this is what we’re to expect from Hyundai’s 2013 Genesis, it’s obvious that the coupe will be borrowing some styling cues from the Veloster, giving it quite the more aggressive stance. What we still don’t know is what will lie underneath the hood, but after checking out Rhys Millen Racing’s SEMA creation, one can only hope that Hyundai will offer a 5.0L V8 Genesis coupe somewhere in their model lineup.
