Hyundai has unveiled its HND-9 Venace Concept at the Seoul Motor Show, calling it a luxury sports coupe concept that gives us a preview of the 2015 Genesis Coupe.

Most revealing of the photos shared by the Korean automaker is of the HND-9’s interior, which Hyundai expressed that it was tuned for sports driving. On the outside, the HND-9 sports a long hood, big volumes, a classic Hyundai hexagonal grille, and butterfly doors to create “dramatic luxury surprise.” Overall the concept is two inches liner than the current Genesis Coupe.

    Looks really nice I would also like to see the 3.8 DI a twin turbo or supercharged 3.8DI and the Tau V8 in it . THe car looks like a big upgrade over first generation, but they need to match performance and handling with the new body a minor power upgrade would not be good enough when they can go for a homer with some true performance packages with it and let it compete with the US muscle cars and the 370Z and Infinity G35. They need say a 350HP a 375HPO and maybe a 450-500HP model with at least 1 lateral G to 1.05 lateral G and a 0-60 in the 4 second to 4.25 second range on the top of the line and the base model should at least get to 0-60 in 5 seconds flat. Maybe a mid 12 quarter and top speed from 165 to 190 range make it a Halo sports car

    You guys are on crack. The Genesis coupe isn't exactly a cheap car. The coupe is a nice car, although I don't like the newest body updates as much, but it doesn't compete with American pony cars at all, and is several 10th's behind the 370z which all have under 5 sec 0-60 times and low 13 quarter miles. It might be priced a little lower than the aforementioned cars. Comparing it to an infinity G is laughable....in any category. If they threw that tau-v8 in it, it would be a different story assuming they adjusted the rest of the car accordingly to go with it. They also need to clean up the vents and furiously fast junk on the outside and go back to the previous update. They will sell more cars, at this level of performance and refinement by dumping the "ricer" look.
