As Hyundai attemps to scale the heights of the luxury sector with the new 2011 Equus full-size sedan, it’s also still pushing in the sports car arena with its Genesis Coupe. The 2011 model sees some shuffles in the trim levels, and today we finally get pricing for the R-Spec, in both 2.0T and 3.8 configurations.

The 2.0T R Spec, powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-banger rated at 210 horsepower, starts at $24,500. The bigger brother 3.8 R Spec, powered by a 3.8-liter V-6 engine rated at 306 horsepower, starts at $26,750. Both are available only with a six-speed manual transmission.

Packing more punch than just about any other car in its price range, and doing it with rear-wheel drive (as opposed to the more popular wrong-wheel at this price point), the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a great value buy. The R Spec trim in particular is the model for the enthusiast, taking the performance gear from the Track model and stripping out the unnecessary (and heavy) convenience and comfort features. The net result? A savings of 68 pounds and $4,000.

R-Spec takes the core performance equipment from the 3.8 Track model and eliminates non-essential convenience equipment to reduce its weight by 68 pounds and price by $4,000. The 3.8 R-Spec allows enthusiasts to use that $4,000 to tune their own car to their desired specifications.

The 3.8 R-Spec is now the most affordable 3.8-liter V6 model in the Genesis Coupe lineup. R-Spec performance features include track-tuned suspension, 19-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels with performance summer tires, Brembo braking system, Torsen limited-slip differential and R-Spec badging. To achieve the $4,000 savings R-Spec 3.8 eliminates metalgrain accents, automatic headlights, cruise control and chrome interior accents. Shoppers will not find a sunroof or rear spoiler on an R-Spec. In a special nod to tuners, R-Spec will also receive a set of front strut camber adjustment bolts (dealer installation required) to further enhance initial turn-in and handling response. Appropriately, the 3.8 R-Spec will be available in four exterior colors most common among international racing teams:  Karussell White, Bathurst Black, Interlagos Yellow and Tsukuba Red. R-Spec comes with manual transmission only.
