Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The 2014 Hyundai Genesis was revealed in Korea last week. Hyundai’s first premium rear-wheel drive saloon received over 3,500 bookings on the first day.

The all-new Genesis was partly tested at the Nürburgring Nordschliefe, which is where this commercial was also shot. What you are seeing here could possibly be the Genesis with the range-topping 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 425 PS and 53 kgm of torque. With this engine, the Genesis will run from 0-100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and hit an electronically limited top-speed of 240 km/h.

The Genesis is also available with a 3.0-liter V6 producing 257 PS and 31 kgm of torque, a 3.3-liter V6 outputting 282 PS and 35.4 kgm, and a 3.8-liter V6 with 315 PS and 40.5 kgm.

An 8-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels, or customers can opt for the Hyundai HTRAC all-wheel drive system.

The Genesis is based on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, and is the first car to use this particular design identity. The sedan measures 4,990 mm in length, 1,890 mm in width, 1,480 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 3,010 mm.

Hyundai reckons it would sell 62,000 units of the Genesis globally next year, with sales of 30,000 units coming from overseas markets.
