The green initiatives at the LA show left a big impression, but not as big as Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe. Talk about ambitious. This, remember, is a rear-driver with a limited slip diff and a 300bhp V6, that will cost less than $20,000 and, insiders will tell you, for which no lesser performance car than the last BMW M3 was the target car in development.

Along with all that, it looks good, as long as you look past the lairy orange paint and body kit excesses of the concept car.

Now all we have to do is persuade Hyundai UK to bring it here when it goes on sale in 2009. I know there are plenty at HMUK who want to: let’s start the campaign right away.
