The cat is out of the bag for Hyundai's overhauled Genesis Coupe hero car. Images of heavily-camouflaged test cars have been circulating for more than year - this week, all is revealed in a trio of grainy spy photos.

When it launched in early 2008, the Genesis Coupe led the charge in Hyundai's rush toward becoming a respected brand with its pulse on the international market.

Now, with almost an entire range filled out with new models and a new design language, the handsome Genesis Coupe is looking a little grey.

These latest photos, captured by a member of GenCoupe enthusiast forums, reveal the 2013 Genesis Coupe carries the Hyundai-family sculptured frontal treatment.

With the Korean carmaker's familiar wide-open trapezoidal grille flanked by Veloster-like headlights, the updated coupe takes on a more aggressive look - one part Mitsubishi Evolution, and one part Nissan GT-R.

The Genesis Coupe's profile carries over unchanged, with the quirky rear-quarter window and overlapping character lines remaining a prominent design feature.

The story is much the same at the rear, with lightly updated LED taillights and a restyled rear bumper.

The Korean- and US-market 2012 update is expected to see the Genesis Coupe gain more power, with the output of its 3.8 litre V6 petrol engine growing from 234kW to 248kW.

The four-cylinder turbo's output is also expected to grow, although actual numbers remain unknown. For now, the turbo Coupe offers a reasonable 157kW and 302Nm of torque.

Australia

An Australia debut for the Genesis Coupe has so far been stonewalled by the absence of a right-hand-drive version.

Thanks to pressure from the UK market however, Hyundai recently gave the green light to the development of a right-hook version.

It is expected that right-hand-drive production will begin with the next-generation Genesis Coupe - not the update we see here - so a local debut for the rear-driven coupe is sometime off.
