Hyundai will be lead sponsor of the RMR Genesis Coupe driven by former Formula Drift champion and acclaimed stunt driver, Rhys Millen.
Available at dealerships now, the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is significantly refreshed for the 2013 model year, with aggressive powertrain and styling enhancements sure to appeal to purist, rear-drive sport coupe buyers. The Formula Drift competitive car has been extensively drift-prepared by RMR, making more than 600 horsepower to create the extreme drift angles and blinding smoke both fans and judges love to see. This race-prepared powertrain is further evidence of the engineering durability of core Hyundai production engine components used, including engine block, heads, and more.
