While we are all busy thinking that the 300kW or so Australian performance sedans are the ducks guts, Hyundai are said to be looking at dropping a 283kW 4.6-litre V8 into their upcoming Genesis premium sedan.
According to the folks at HyundaiExchange, the Hyundai R&D boss, Hyun-Soon Lee let the kilowatts out of the bag at a recent meeting of Korean executives.
We knew the Genesis was going to feature a 4.6-litre quad-cam 32-valve V8 but this new revelation concerning its output has come as a surprise. Hyundai have no intention of politely knocking on the premium sedan club room door â€“ theyâ€™re going forcefully knock it down.
The Hyundai Genesis Luxo-barge is set to have the looks and the power of its European and Japanese rivals without the price. What a pity we won't be seeing it Australia anytime soon. Initially at least, the Gensis will be a North American only model.
