The next Hyundai Genesis Coupe might be getting a dose of eight-cylinder muscle.

A report from Australian site GoAuto suggests that the next Genesis Coupe will be offered with a version of the company’s Tau 5.0-liter V8 that makes 420 hp in the current Genesis luxury sedan. That version of the car would be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels.

If the report proves true, the V8 Genesis Coupe will sit above the turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 models. Hyundai previewed the next Genesis Coupe with the HND-9 Concept at the Seoul Motor Show last year.

The up-swept rear end and roofline are expected to live on in series production, but the butterfly doors will be axed in favor of more traditional equipment.
