Hyundai Concept Genesis CoupeThu, 08 Nov 2007
Korea's largest automaker is poised to unveil the Concept Genesis Coupe at the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto Show next week. Though these sketches are admittedly exaggerated, the coupe uses the concept Genesis sedan, unveiled it the 2007 New York International Auto Show in April, as the basis for the structure.
According to our sources, the sporting coupe concept hints at the forthcoming design direction for a future rear-wheel drive sports coupe from Hyundai called the BK, a luxurious sport coupe specifically for North American market. Contrary to popular belief, the BK coupe is not the replacement for the Tiburon/Tuscani but is positioned more upscale.
The sweeping, aggressive lines of the rendered images appear particularly radical and feature a Z-lined DLO around the waistline. Hopefully it will translate well onto the finished product, which we'll be seeing next week in LA. Stay tuned for our Los Angeles Auto Show Highlights coming soon.
