Click above for full high-res gallery of the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

According to Inside Line, movie-goers should expect to see more tire-burning action from Hyundai's new Genesis Coupe than what's already been shown. It seems that the Korean car company has already sent Universal a bright red Genesis Coupe SE powered by the turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This news lends some credence to our opinion that the turbo mill will likely be the tuner's choice, though the big six cylinder is likely to be plenty for most drivers who don't want to modify their car. While we're not waiting on the edge of our seats for the fourth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, we think that it'll be pretty cool to see the Genesis Coupe alongside such performance-car stalwarts as the new Nissan GT-R and Subaru STI.

      I call BS, filming has already begun, from a time management perspective it would be too late.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Please, they could re-write and shoot half this film in a weekend.

      they'll probably crash it so they need an 'affordable' car.

      To me, this car is like the Silvia that Nissan should have brought to America (after the unfortunate demise of the 240SX stateside)- so it doesn't seem out of this world that it would hit the film.

      My biggest problem with putting this in F&F4 is that it will drive up demand for the car so I won't be able to get one on the cheap a month or two after their release.

      That's a marvellous car. What a pity: non in Italy. Why?! I really can't undestand. In Usa speed limits are the same as in Italy...

      There was a Fast and Furious 3?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Shoot. I forgot about 2 Fast 2 Furious (as did a lot of people I imagine).
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's what I thought. Did we miss something?

        Tokyo Drift.

      Change is hard for anyone to accept. Even harder for morons.
      • 6 Years Ago
      It looks great but is it still light on the back end as all these coups are?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Please not, i can't stand hyundai!

      I didn't say anything in the original post about the Genesis "burning rubber and powersliding," but... I didn't see any power slides in that video. I saw a few nice hand brake turns, which I thought were well timed, but no power slides.

      As far as the Fast and the Furious franchise goes, I personally liked the cars in the second one the most. It was a nice mix of old school muscle and new rice (which I don't mean in a derogatory way).

      This will probably be the only car in the movie that the audience would be able to afford, actually.

      Hyundai is gaining respect in the tuner world.

      “Give people three things — rear-wheel-drive, a turbocharged 4 and independent rear suspension — and they’re going to come,” said John Krafcik, vice president for product development at Hyundai. He added that the Genesis could win over people who might otherwise be snobbish about the Hyundai brand name.
