The Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec is finally arriving at dealerships across the country. First discussed at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, the R-Spec makes a perfect blank canvas for tuners and, beginning at $23,750, is sure priced right. R-Spec takes the core performance equipment from the 2.0T Track model and eliminates non-essential convenience equipment to reduce both cost and weight.
The R-Spec adds track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance tires, Brembo braking system, Torsen limited-slip differential, and R-Spec badging. R-Spec will also receive a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts to further enhance initial turn-in and handling response. To reduce both cost and weight, the R-Spec eliminates Bluetooth, automatic headlights, cruise control, trip computer, chrome interior accents, and steering wheel audio controls. Genesis Coupe R-Spec is priced $3,000 less than the 2.0T Track model.
The first production Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec will make its world debut at the Hyundai booth at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in the Las Vegas Convention Center early this November.
