2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 with R-Spec features a 429-hp, 5.0-liter version of the company Tau V8 engine that boasts the highest specific output (85.8 hp / liter) for all engines vacuum in its class. While its peak torque at a healthy 376 pounds-feet at 5000 rpm, is it more than 300 of the little feet beating on hand at just 1500 rpm.
Not surprisingly, this broad band of torque provides sharp throttle response at almost any speed. Results in speed is from 0 to 60 km / h in about 5.1 seconds, a speed of almost any situation you are likely to encounter. Also present on the R-Spec car specific 19-inch wheels machined alloy shod with Bridgestone Potenza summer tires, sport suspension, steering and transmission, and R-Spec badge. Features sport-tuned suspension with Sachs shock amplitude detection depreciation, higher rate springs together with a hollow rear stabilizer bar.
Although this new addition to the clear upgrade bits of the leg below the chassis where the driver is bumping along, which makes components introduce some higher rate movements nervous riding, we could live without. Overall, although the brand new R-Spec Genesis is a very serious high performance of the tool of a company with very little heavy metals associated with sedans, and it is a compelling entrance into the kingdom to a reasonable price.
A $ 47.350 (including freight $ 850), the Genesis is much more affordable than the competition with V8 luxury sedans on the market performance. There is a close equivalent German, Japanese or domestic at that price. Although the character of driving a Cadillac CTS-V or a BMW 550i could offer European flavor compared to the R-Spec Genesis, the price difference offers a generous compensation.
