Currently reading: Hyundai Genesis Legato concept to be shown at US show
Vibrant Hyundai coupé offers 395bhp from 4.0-litre V6 engine; will be shown at Las Vegas SEMA show in November

A new Hyundai concept car, the Genesis Legato, will make its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas next month.

The concept presents exaggerated styling based on the Genesis coupé, and aims to convey "the seamless integration of exotic design, tuned performance and luxury interior ambience".

Built by ARK Performance, the concept is powered by a 4.0-litre V6 engine putting out 395bhp and 425lb ft of torque. The car also features upgraded suspension and braking setups, while lightweight materials keep the total kerb weight down. No top speed, 0-62mph sprint time or economy information has been revealed.

New bodywork, including new front and rear bumpers and side skirts have been added as well as bespoke paintwork.

Inside, the Genesis Legato concept features sports seats, a sports steering wheel and digital instruments alongside a Rockford Fosgate sound system.

Vice president of product planning for Hyundai North America Mike O'Brien said: "The ARK Legato Concept demonstrates the compelling appeal and versatility of the original Genesis Coupé production concept.

"ARK Performance has taken this original concept and expanded its appeal to the most demanding premium coupé owners."

Subaru/Toyota homage

Apart from the front end (except for lights) this looks VERY GT86-inspired. Of course it's larger but even so...

...(not) coming to a Hyundai dealer near you anytime soon, it would seem.
