Click above to watch video after the jump

Maybe Hyundai has been lying to us the whole time. Maybe the Genesis Coupe is really front-wheel drive. It certainly doesn't look like a rear-wheel-drive muscle coupe. Well, the video after the jump showing Rhys Millen having some fun with his new Red Bull Genesis Coupe drift car proves beyond measure that Hyundai's two-door is definitely driving the right wheels. Those billowing clouds of smoke definitely trace their origins to a pair of contact patches made by the rear wheels and the road. Millen will soon be piloting the 550-hp Red Bull Genesis Coupe in the Formula Drift Professional Drifting Championship, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and Redline Time Attack Road Racing series. For now, however, he's just getting to know his new ride with a few opposite lock examples of extreme oversteer. Follow the jump to see exactly what the Genesis Coupe can do when given to maniacs.
