Genesis GV80 coupé concept unveiled at New York motor show
The sporty SUV coupe will compete with the Audi RS Q8 and Porsche Cayenne Coupé
Genesis has provided a sneak peek into their latest model expansion with the debut of the Genesis GV80 Coupé Concept.
Unveiled at the New York motor show, the concept is a coupé version of the brand's GV80 SUV, and is expected to hit the market in late 2023 or early 2024.
When it does arrive in showrooms, the car will likely compete with the likes of Audi’s RS Q8, and Porsche’s Cayenne Coupé.
The GV80 Coupé Concept comes as a sequel to the Speedium Coupé Concept unveiled at last year's New York motor show, and signals a clearer intent to bring the car into production.
The design features flared wheel arches, front and rear spoilers and a large black grille which dominates the front end. There's also a carbon fibre roof, and lights which look like ribbons which stretch across the rear.
The exterior colour, dubbed 'Magma,' is also replicated in the cabin, and features bucket seats, carbon fibre trim and a rear strut brace.
Genesis avoided sharing any technical details on the car, but since the current GV80 houses a twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 engine, it can be suggested the coupe version will likely adopt the same power plant, plus the company's front-engined, rear-drive architecture.
It’s expected the GV80 Coupé will arrive ahead of a larger GV90, which will be the company’s flagship SUV.
