This Is A Hyundai? The Upcoming Equus.

Hyundai has been on the right tracks of car design as of lately. Their new Genesis sedan is a great looking sedan. The upcoming RWD coupe version of the car is even better:

Back in August Hyundai leaked out a teaser picture of the new Equus sedan, and this is all we got:

Then earlier this month some sketches were released, and I have to say, they look amazing!  If the 2010 Hyundai Equus looks anything like these sketches, I will be very impressed:

The car looks super agressive, and I love me a mean looking car.  The rear looks like a mixture of a few cars to me.  I see a Honda Accord, Nissan Maxima, and Acura TL.  What do you think?

The Equus will be Hyundai’s big daddy Sedan, packing a 4.6 liter V8 and eight-speed transmission.  Speculation says there is a possibility of a 5.0 liter 420hp V8, and even talks of a 5.5 liter supercharged version are amok.  The car will be loaded with all sorts of technology, and is going after cars like the S-class Mercedes.

2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe

My daily driver car right now is the Infiniti G35 Coupe. I got the car when I originally had a Nissan 350Z with twin turbo and a 94 Toyota Camry. I wanted to have a nicer car as a daily driver, so I swapped the Camry with the G35:

Infiniti recently released the new G35 Sedan, a much better improvement from the older version. I’ve been anxiously awaiting what the new coupe would look like, and based on concept pictures I knew I would be impressed:

Here are the production pictures:

It definitely doesn’t look as good as the concept, but it does look better than the version that I have…unfortunately not good enough in my opinion to justify replacing mine with it. It’s really not a complete re-design in my opinion, but more like a lot of refinements. Automobile Magazine stated that the interior is a 100% improvement, and the G37 looks much better when parked next to the G35 in person. I guess it’s something I’ll have to see when it’s in the dealerships. But looks aren’t everything…The new G37 now moves into a 3.7 liter motor with a preliminary 330hp, a big upgrade from my 275hp 3.5L. There are many other performance upgrades like VVEL technology, better fuel economy, higher redline, 36% stiffer, larger brakes, and more.

I’m dying to see the car in person. What do you think:

Update 3/26/07: I found a picture of the G37 Coupe interior for your viewing. As soon as they have a model at my local Infiniti dealership, I’ll be there for some pics.
