Leaked photos of the 2013 Genesis Coupe have already hit the net showcasing a Veloster-style nose for the Hyundai sports car. Now new shots have revealed one of the engine options – and it’s a good one.
Rumors had suggested the base 2.0T 4-cylinder would be upgraded to equal the power of that in the new Sonata, with 274-hp on tap. As for the V6, it was expected to get direct-injection, much like in the 2012 Genesis Sedan, to generate 333-hp. And rumors of the R-Spec’s 5.0-liter continued to surface in the hope there was some truth to them.
The latest photos have confirmed at least one engine, and it’s none of the above. Instead, look for a supercharged V6 to find its way under the hood of the new 2013 Genesis Coupe. This should help it deliver power on par with the big 5.0-liter, but in a more compact space and with a lower weight.
