The fuel efficient automaker used to be know for getting great gas mileage, but the refreshed Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec is an enthusiasts dream come true. Hyundai kick started the 21st century sport compact craze with the original Genesis Coupe, and while it was a breath of fresh air from the 100,000 mile warranty car builder, at the time the rear wheel drive sport compact felt a bit heavy. However the refreshed 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe not only looks better, but thanks to gasoline direct injection they make a whole lot more power as well. Starting at $28,750 the 3.8 R Spec comes exclusively with a six speed manual that is connected to the torquey 3.8 Liter Lambda V6 and rides on a set of staggered 19 inch wheels wrapped in stick y Bridgestone Potenza tires and house a set of big red Brembo brake calipers.
The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec is motivated by a large 3.8 Liter GDI V6 that produces 348 HP at 6,400 RPM and 295 lb-ft of torque at 5,300 RPM. Despite the added power the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec still gets great gas mileage, rated at 18 MPG in the city and as much as 27 MPG on the highway. The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 R Spec is quick too, accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.9 seconds and keeps on going though the quarter mile in 14.3 seconds at 98 MPH.
From the ground up the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec was built to perform. The 3.8 R Spec handles great, even with the extra weight up front from the Lambda V6. The 225 wide rubber up front helps point the R Spec around turns while the Torsen limited slip differential makes sure that power is distributed evenly across the 245 series tires out back. The Brembo brake calipers also help to bring things to a halt. On the inside the sport bucket seats hold occupants in place nicely and add a nice touch to the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe R Spec's enthusiast attitude.
