Funny last night when I hinted that I felt Hyundai would be the next manufacturer to run in Drifting we at Wrecked were really just speculating out our you know what….but we did feel it was the most common sense option. Well Hyundai agrees it seems as they start to take steps to show they are interested in Drifting. This is from InsideLine:
According to Inside Line, movie-goers should expect to see more tire-burning action from Hyundai’s new Genesis Coupe than what’s already been shown. It seems that the Korean car company has already sent Universal a bright red Genesis Coupe SE powered by the turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This news lends some credence to our opinion that the turbo mill will likely be the tuner’s choice, though the big six cylinder is likely to be plenty for most drivers who don’t want to modify their car. While we’re not waiting on the edge of our seats for the fourth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise, we think that it’ll be pretty cool to see the Genesis Coupe alongside such performance-car stalwarts as the new Nissan GT-R and Subaru STI.
Although Fast and Furious 4 isn’t scheduled for release until the summer of 2009, Hyundai has already committed to providing a red turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder Genesis Coupe SE to the mix. It will have a returning cast members include Paul Walker and Vin Diesel.
