Once again Hyundai takes a good design and makes it ugly.

It's crazy how Hyundai kept the same general shape but made it completely unappealing. It's like a cross b/n a G37 and a Mustang (I see it a bit in the rear roofline, it's like they smoothed it out). The rear looks pretty damn close to this concept Mustang: http://images.motortrend.com/auto_sh..._side_view.jpg

Looks very new Lexus ISish, so I kind of dig it. Knowing Hyundai it will be heavy and underpowered though.

Koreans arent the only ones copying. Have you seen the new Pontiac R8? Looks like a 5 series beamer from the side. Unless *gasp* Koreans are designing American cars.

I think you meant to say G8. I may look like a Bimmer but 30k for 400hp FTW.

Its RWD

"It will enter Hyundai's line up as an entry-level rear-driver powered either by a base turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, or more powerful all-aluminum 3.8-liter V-6 that is estimated to make over 300-bhp, and over 250 lb-ft of torque."

That would be a tough decision.. modding the base turbo 4, or supercharging the 6.

I don't think it looks bad at all. When you consider it will likely be 300 hp and pretty inexpensive, not a bad deal. I think one thing that makes it ugly to many people is the Hyundai badge.
