Hyundai has grand ambitions for the elegant V8 Genesis concept it will roll out at the New York auto show April 4.

The Genesis shows the styling direction for Hyundai's new rear-drive sedan - and the engineering commitment. The car was benchmarked for torsional stiffness against a BMW 5 series.

The production version will go on sale in the second half of 2008. A version with a 3.8-liter V6 will be priced well below $30,000, a Hyundai spokesman said. He did not estimate the price for the 4.6-liter V8 version, which will produce more than 300 hp.

The sedan will be the first of several vehicles developed off Hyundai's new rwd platform, said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America vice president for product development.

Crazy.

I for one am happy to see RWD cars made even by manufacturers I'll never buy cars from.

Funny to think this car has the Hyundai Pony as it's closest relative. :P

It looks just like a Lexus LS series and very bland.

It's near impossible to get blander than an LS. The LS makes you comatose. The Hyundai at least just makes you lethargic.
