Welcome to fox car -- and Gary -- live this week haven't you from not just go to New York.
The -- create New York racing go Kart track where we are test I mean that's not a drag on the streets around here it's the 2013.
Hyundai Genesis two.
Updated version that caused barely hear sell a couple of years now -- that there -- that a communications manager.
I'm begins they have your decision where your three years ago I was a little reminiscent -- the cars worked out pretty well -- you -- the mid cycle refresh -- absolute.
Is doing very well Augusta is really like me you know supports our customers always want more power and we've got to -- this -- this generation.
Now we've got the horsepower the 348.
From 306 and 295 -- to -- going to that through the definition direct injection V6 engine so.
I'm really sad about that the Turbo also has really enhanced we put in a twin scroll designed to push charter handle a 53% larger and a -- -- the output on that up to 274 star.
-- every five -- in terms of both cars are really a lot of fun now.
Here without a chillier Joba came out a lot of people -- -- that they say that that's an engine that looks like will be -- -- out exactly for the -- market but it seems that you guys do that yourself we did that and we -- it was reliable power on Hyundai warranty power most importantly our -- 100000 mile arc and warranty.
And that's really good -- out of the cheerleader you take a look at other cheerleaders at some higher end of things.
And we're proud to offer that with Condit -- so it's a great package and you both these cars can actually wrote on premium or regular -- not always that -- with a Turbo -- engine that's right we -- the versatility of being able to run on either through an oxygen sensor and a you know anti anti knock sensor so you can run either you wanna run less expensive fuel you can get a little bit less outlet but still great credibility.
As you want full power you can -- premium.
And you'll get full power the vehicle what's the response this car being with the it would that your -- -- -- your -- is much of that I think it's more the California thing.
I do you see these at the car shows they'll bring us -- And those guys kind of place you a lot of modified versions is this on the let's catch you know what -- -- -- -- so it's very popular Sammy you know this big governor drive there's only so -- -- -- vehicles out there at this price point and you know we offer that we're proud that I'm.
The alpha level -- such that you can do a lot -- -- he -- the suspension you've got a great performing vehicle.
And of course the Turbo model people like to terms of this.
And I get a lot more on that so we're seeing a lot of interest in and today and -- applications this she goes up against a library cars you've got the mustang and Camaro the one side.
It's sort of the Infiniti G 37 and you even -- kind of what exactly is even though -- significantly more spent to guard yes yes he had really you know as we like -- is -- that really appeals to several fire rips.
Goes with the classic pony car muscle parent mustang and Camaro.
It it feels a little bit to the -- 37 crowd a little bit cheaper.
-- similar performance actually in some cases better performance also appeals to the new us I'm -- RS customer potential customers -- New Jersey.
And so we think it's a nice cross section in the market appealing -- has good horsepower reasonable way and their rear drive performance and great differentiators and that's sports car segment -- look now.
-- in the new Hyundai case.
Some of the other cars looks applicable -- there yes.
Detailed in the last summer yet we really have start start to take on more of the Hyundai.
-- -- and -- for the vehicles.
It's very cohesive well -- board here with a large larger balance opening and a larger blackout area so.
Very aggressive -- wide opening an affront.
And he -- see just aggressive message on this vehicle some updates to the interior as well this.
Really want hardly feels like a wide -- for this size -- Yeah if there's a comfort sure it's got plenty of room.
You know you feel like -- you're here you've got sports -- has been hit you're not.
They're -- so so tight as enemy out or something like that you actually have room to move here and your elbows and shoulders.
There are some load new look to the interior he had the the insurer received a significant refreshing we've got a lot more matte finish is soft soft touch finish -- in -- -- -- Much more premium appearance on the center -- the entire sentence that was completely redesigned.
And all -- the door panels come and Douglas that area where enhance as well so put a lot of money and effort in design effort incidents here just to make it a lot more premium again.
Killing -- -- to legendary seven -- customer because the other customers this particular -- -- yeah yeah yeah this is a -- set by Graham also is absolutely turned over for -- tremendous performance our introduction not event was actually at a -- -- Green mountain.
These are stock breaks procedure and the journalists from it all day on the track three -- around no failures whatsoever.
The brakes all the outstanding under under abuse conditions so.
Real real happy with the immigrants -- sports car manual transmission of course -- speed but you've also got an eight speed.
We automatic in this an album we've got an in house developed and it's been automatic we're real happy with -- Provides great fuel economy of course it's acceleration disappears quicker and just keeps things in -- sweet spot several nice to drive both the real real good.
Transmissions palace sisters as well that'll sit and -- there -- added as well yes so that's a great application for the eight Dundee it's -- Now.
The Genesis coupe you've got the Genesis sedan.
Very different cars but I mean this is sort of some brand almost in Hyundai what's the definition of -- Genesis really.
This is really is shorthand for rear wheel drive performance that's the way we like to think that's our -- -- -- so.
You know if it's got rear drive performance and it's gotta have that performance -- you know he can be a Genesis and and those two vehicles as well as a twister and higher.
Would fit in that genre but the Genesis coupe and sedan com carried that banner.
25 to 35000 dollars basically when you start with the base and give -- to a fully loaded twenty -- -- -- -- actually pretty easy to remember Tony -- did pretty fortunate to get 304050 that's a full range.
-- all the way from a base well equipped to -- -- T all the way up to the track automatic.
Three point eight so back -- that vehicles very well content it fully loaded that we asked this all the time -- -- -- again now.
The Genesis sedan couple -- V8 engines -- that light -- just is that so that we could see the end.
That's your door -- whether it's the -- and maybe there's something on top of the CBS can build one of my favorite phrases -- Garcia that he likes to uses.
And we and I -- we never say never.
In this current application you know we know we can get the power out of direct injection for the most of the market what they need an end at 348 horsepower really do offer -- great power train.
You know we never say never missed the -- -- as we can take a look at that currently -- business cycle -- you know it's got a strong basis for direct injection and the twin scroll -- -- -- engine -- maybe three years from now have to talk about that again you know it's really about what the market wants you know we hit the market wants and there's a market -- -- you know -- as there have been just as our customers so well we'll definitely look at it.
