Hyundai Germany has announced a limited production of just 50 units for a Genesis Coupe GT, inspired by the Hyundai Schuhmann Motor Sport Team. The team is famous for campaigning a Genesis Coupe at the Nurburgring 24-hour race. The Genesis Coupe GT will come with the standard 3.8L V6 powerplant with 306-hp and 266 lb-ft of torque but will feature a quad-tipped, stainless steel exhaust.

Other modifications to the Genesis Coupe GT include suspension upgrades, lowering the Genesis by about 1.2-inches giving it better handling and a meaner stance. The vehicle is lowered on a set of 19-inch OZ Ultraleggera wheels in a matte graphite finish, wrapped with Dunlop Sport Maxx GT rubber.

Available only in Germany, the Genesis Coupe GT is priced at $59,445 on today’s conversation rates.

Dunlop Tires released a new video that can only be described as automotive ballet, as a way to promote their new tire line. The video features three identical green Citroens doing all manner of handbrake turns and driving in reverse for the entirety of the clip.

The premise of the short is that the parking lot where the three cars are situated is set to close in exactly one minute, and the cars must get out within the allotted time – going backwards. While it definitely falls under the “Professional Driver, Closed Course: Do Not Attempt” category, it’s a worth a view, if only to see how good these guys are at driving.
