    2012 Hyundai Genesis sedan gets new 5.0L V8

    "The new powerplant is Hyundai's most powerful engine ever, producing 429 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 376 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 rpm. Impressive stuff, and Hyundai follows through with a new eight-speed automatic transmission that was developed in-house. The new tranny will help the R-Spec model achieve estimated fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon on the highway and 16 mpg around town. The R-Spec model will also feature unique 19-inch wheels, along with more aggressive suspension and steering tuning."

    Man, I have to say: I rode in a 2010 Hyundai Genesis sedan with the V8 and came away so impressed. The fit & finish were first rate, ride and handling was very good (imo) and the technology was state of the art.

    Almost 10 years ago, the CEO of Hyandai simply announced that he was going to turn his company into the Honda of the 2000s...everyone laughed at the time, especially with Hyundai quality, etc.
    But he did.
    It just goes to show you what vision coupled with sheer determination and will can do, even on a large scale.

    They are doing stuff right.

    They look nice, hear the interiors are pretty well done, a nice engine to go with it at a bargain price. They need to do more cars like this, put this engine into the Genesis coupe

    Those are pretty good specs for a 5.0 liter V8.

    To put it in perspective, more HP and torque than a BMW S62...

    that's great news...actually not sure if many of you know but back in 2005 many of the top Toyota engineers jumped ship over to Hyundai...if you look at quality in Toyota and Hyundai 2005 and up you'll see Toyota trending down and Hyundai up

    I guess the CEO really meant it when he said he will be the "new honda of the 1990s".
