    2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will get 5.0-liter Tau engine and eight-speed transmission

    Mustang watch out! Hyundai is preparing a new 5.0 liter V8 engine that will deliver 429 HP. Of course, Hyundai did not say that with the new engine they would want to take on the Mustang, but it wouldn’t be as ridiculous as the race between Mini and Porsche! The output for the new coupe is even bigger than the one from the Mustang GT model that develops a total of 412 HP. The announcement was made by Hyundai in South Korea during a test drive for the new Sonata hybrid and 2.0T.

    The new 5.0 liter Tau engine is a bored-out, direct-injection version of the 4.6-liter V-8 currently found in the Genesis sedan. Bore increases to 96 mm, an increase of 4, while the stroke stays the same at 87 mm. The result is an estimated output of 429 hp at 6500 rpm and 376 lb-ft at 5000 rpm with an 11.5:1 compression ratio. The new engine will be mated to an eight-speed automatic designed and manufactured by Hyundai.

    The new engine is rumored to be available for the Genesis Coupe sometime in mid-2011.

    Props to hyundai, they are officially on my radar for my next car!
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Holy crap, I didn't think they had it in them.

    When Hyundai starts build a naturally aspirated V8 coupe with more power than a BMW you know things are changing.

    Pretty much all the Asian carmakers are imitators. They just copy and refine really well.
