The Hyundai Tiburon has won a lot of fans that want a stylish sports coupe at a bargain price. Having unveiled its latest revised version at the Guangzhou Motor Show in China and then in Paris, the Korean carmaker has hit us with this promotional video.

The clip features some artful cinematography, placing the new Coupe (as it's plainly called in overseas markets) in dramatic settings to highlight its styling. Some of the car's features, like the blue LED instruments, six-speed shifter and air intake hole (yes, "air intake hole" is considered a feature now) are underscored in the promo video, which ends with the question, "What do you worship?" While we doubt many people would testify "a Hyundai" in response to that question, the video's still worth watching.

      "NO WAY. My world will never be the same."

      Okay Mr. Know-it-all. Why don't you be the first to explain it to someone else then. Dipshit.

      Any possibility of fitting in the Azera 3.8 into that 300 0 lb coupe?

      to #7:

      do not worry here in Europe Hyundai is (oooppps, was) the same story, except for one of my friends 95 Hyundai Sonata, that is oddly not falling apart like other "techo wonders" from this car manufacturer. Hmmmm... That Hyundai of his, allways makes me wonder ... and talking about Halloween - maybe it is cursed :DD

      To those thinking some of the lines look ridiculous: This is from another country, hence it being called the Hyundai Coupe. The real thing thats funny is why do a lot of these type of videos use English when it's not that countries native language.

      I actually think that the Tiburon is a very nice looking Coupe. Given better power, I would consider one (like the Sonata's 3.3l) but that 2.7l mill is getting pretty long in the tooth and 185hp is not that much.

      Does anyone else think the sentences in this clip make absolutely no sense?

      "The intellectual appreciates myths?"
      "The dignified value the aroma of cigars?"
      Okay, that's just a little bit ridiculous... good looking male models they included, though...

      Okay, all that aside, even way back when all of Hyundai's cars sold in the US were complete crap, I still always thought the Tiburon had its merits. I still think it does, even though I agree that the front does remind me a little too much of a Celica.

      ?? Did the site lose a few editors? Is someone on vacation? For about the past week the level of updates has been absolutely terrible...

      That's some pretty hard dirt for the wheels to squeal like that.

      It was completely new for 2002 and isn't related to the 1996-2001 models. This will be the third restyle for the current generation. It is getting long in the tooth though. Apparently an all new coupe will come out for the 2009 model year.

      Yeah, it would be nice with the 3.3 or the 3.8 instead of the 2.7. After this facelift I think its being put to sleep for something else though. Dont they have a RWD platform on the way?

      no jeff jay is correct. the new design was begun in 2002, but marketed as the 2003 redesign. mine was stamped as OCT2002 for a build date... better suspension too... they switched it out mid year 2003 for a more "relaxed, refined ride" (fools)
      Love my 2004 that I have now.
      This new TIB is a total disaster, the front, the back, and where the hell are the GILLS!!!!
      that front bumper is soo bad.
