    It seems to be a trend. Almost in line with Ford’s decision to finally let go of its panther platform and give its Police Interceptor a Taurus chassis, Hyundai now releases the Genesis sedan. This sedan is a done up Korean police car which thrills cop car fans out there. It looks especially impressive with the red and blue lights coming out of its grill. If you’re just dying to know, the Genesis Sedan carries either a 4.6L V8 engine or a more modest 3.8L V6. There’s no news about whether or not there will also be an adaptation of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

    True to the principles of cop car fans out there, the Hyundai Genesis is driven from the rear. For police issue vehicles, Hyundai is expected to go for the more powerful V8 option. This engine can produce 375 horsepower and 333 pound-feet of torque. That is, of course, if the car is “fed” only with premium fuel. A regular gas will only allow the V8 engine to produce 368 HP of power and 324 lb-feet of torque, tops.

    Just like Ford’s Taurus, the Genesis sedan still carries a unit body. In case of a pursuit, the car won’t be able to drive over curbs of 50mph without wrecking the mechanism. However, with Hyundai’s average handling features, the sedan should be able to drive around curbs at this speed with no trouble.

    The Hyundai Genesis Concept started out as a concept released in the New York International Car Show in 2007. It is primarily being marketed as a premium sports sedan. The Genesis was the company’s first entry into the dominated luxury arena of Europe.
