Genesis has revealed the GV80 Coupe concept at the Genesis House in Manhattan, which seems to be almost ready for production. This sporty iteration of the mid-size GV80 SUV showcases a sleeker roofline, a carbon-fiber roof, and a bold ducktail rear spoiler, following the trend of SUV-coupes.
Inside the car, the Alcantara material adds an elegant touch, with four carbon-fiber-shelled bucket seats that come with a hand pump to inflate the bolsters. Additionally, there is a sturdy cross brace positioned behind the passenger cabin.
Featuring cross-drilled and slotted rotors that are clamped by large, fixed-piston calipers, the GV80 concept comes with impressive 23-inch wheels and Pirelli P Zero Scorpion All Season tires. Its exterior boasts a vibrant Magma orange hue, inspired by the volcanos that encircle the brand’s home, the Korean peninsula.
Although Genesis is set to develop an all-electric fleet, the GV80 Coupe concept runs on an internal-combustion engine that produces the V-6’s distinctive hum. It remains unclear whether the sportier coupe model will adopt the G90 sedan’s 409-hp twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 with electric supercharger or the current GV80 lineup’s 375-hp twin-turbo V-6.
