In the USA it's called a Hyundai Genesis Coupe (3.8 V6 and 2.0 Turbo versions). 10 years or 100,000 mile guarantee. I bought it because of all the great write-ups in the US motoring press (this new model - larger than the old Tiberon (it was just called the 'Hyundai Coupe' in the UK) is not offered in the UK - I don't know about Europe or 'down-South').

Rear wheel drive it's used a lot for drift racing as it also comes in a track version and is very popular in the US with people who like to customise their engines or take their car to the track.

My wife has had 5 (admittedly petit) Chinese ladies in it so it's a real 2+2 (or 3 as the case may be)
