Genesis debuted their new G80 3.3T Sport yesterday at the Los Angeles motor show and it'll be slotted right between the base model V-6 sedan and the high end V-8 G80.
Sporting Hyundai's new 3.3-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, the G80 Sport will be generating 365bhp and 376lb ft of torque. Mated to the power plant is an eight-speed automatic transmission that's been tuned for a sportier feel with shift-by-wire technology. Like other 2018 G80 models, the Sport trim will be offered with rear-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
A new suspension system with continuous damping control and unique 19in alloy wheels gives the Sport trim better performance and handling to make it the sharpest G80 variant to go on sale.
Other standard features listed in Genesis' press release includes ventilated rear disc brakes, leather upholstered sport seats and steering wheel, carbon fiber interior trim, aluminium sports pedals, and special front and rear bumpers. The interior will also come with a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system and 17-speaker sound system.
The G80 3.3T Sport won't go on sale until spring next year, but when it does, potential buyers will be able to get it in two additional exclusive colors: Polar Ice & Sevilla Red.
