A number of years ago I drove the Mazda RX-8 and fell in love with it! It was my favourite car for well over a year before another came along and knocked it from the top spot on my list. From that point on I seemed to have a new “favourite” car on a very regular basis. So, what made the RX-8 so great that it held the top spot for so long, yet no other car has been my favourite for any more than a couple of months? If I drove it again today would I be just as enamoured with it, or was it really just a passing fancy? We’re about to find out…..
Over the past ten years or so, Hyundai have been proving they are a force to be reckoned with. Many nay-sayers thought Hyundai could never go up against sports cars like the iconic Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro – while at the same time taking on the likes of a Nissan 370Z, Infiniti G37 and Mazda RX-8 … well, it’s time to think again! With the Genesis Coupe V-6 GT, Hyundai has hit the bulls-eye and anyone dismissing this as a Tiburon update with “all show and no go” – be warned – this is a serious sports car.
