  1. Can't tell if this is a final product or prototype. Check out the vid:

  2. Disappointing. I hope this is not the final version. Of course, most of us
    don't drive to the limit every day. When he spoke of high speeds, did he
    mean cruising at 70 on the interstate or pushing over 100?

  3. Disappointing. I hope this is not the final version. Of course, most of us
    This is one of those hard things to tell just from the vid because you
    don't get a feel for when it was shot or if that was the final vehicle
    or what. Plus there's always gonna be differences between the foreign
    version and what we get here. This was mentioned in the vid (8 cyl.
    versus 6 cyl, ZF transmission, etc.). Still, so far it looks like a
    sleek Mercedes from a couple years ago. At least the front looks very
    borrowed to me. The reviewer is correct to say that this is Hyundai's
    *first* attempt to make a rear-wheel drive car and for the price
    point, you can't realistically be expecting Mercedes / Lexus class
    performance from $30k worth of car. Time will tell.

  4. Good find TCW.
    Yep, there will be differences in foreign and domestic models so what
    is being said here may change when it is sold in US markets. We'll
    have to wait and see I guess. I'm curious who the guy was and what, if
    any, qualifications he had with reviewing the car? Since the model is
    not officially out, I wonder if it was like the Korean version of Car
    & Driver or some such similar TV show.

    Good find TCW.

    Seems like an honest review.

    Bear in mind, however that the V6 and V8 are different animals. So are
    the Asian and US models.

  7. Toyotas head designer?

    No, I don't think so. Toyota is Japanese and he was speaking Korean.
