Jalopnik, one of the edgiest, most provocative automotive enthusiast sites around just named the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe to its list of the BEST10 Cars for 2009.
In addition to the Genesis Coupe, the list includes the Subaru WRX, Chevy Corvette ZR1, Mercedes-Benz C63, Ford F-150 Raptor and Mustang GT, Cadillac CTS-V, VW Golf GTI, Lotus Elise SC and Dodge Viper SRT10.
We love Jalopniks in-your-face style, and this list of cars delivers that big-time. They all have serious attitude, and theyre all a blast to drive, says John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor Americas president and CEO. Its good company for the Genesis Coupe to be in.
Jalopnik (www.jalopnik.com) is part of the Gawker Media Group, which is known for cutting-edge specialty consumer Web Sites, which feature very active, very opinionated, user-generated comments. According to Jalopnik, the list is made up of cars we dig the most. They further explain, At the risk of stating the obvious, yes, you may perceive this list as flawed. It’s not. You may think other cars are more practical, more attainable, more reliable, or more well-rounded. Whatever. We don’t care; this is what we like.
Jalopnik has tested the turbo-charged Genesis Coupe 2.0T and 3.8-liter V-6 Track models. Genesis Coupe Track features a unique track-tuned suspension, 6-speed manual or 6-speed ZF automatic transmission, Torsen limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, 19-inch alloy wheels and Bridgestone Potenza summer tires.
Why did it make the list? writes Jalopniks editor-in-chief, Ray Wert. Simple. Its cheap. Its drifty. And its fast.
