I'll take the N/A at 175 for a car less than 1500 lbs.

No need to be greedy.

Not a bad looking car. I'll have to see if I can spot any driving around here. Of course if you've ever seen how koreans handle product exports it would be a nightmare to get one right. The Hyundais and Kias they sell here and in the US are different. They think the US is full of gearheads with no aesthetic ability, so the send a cheap cloth/plastic interior and give it a better engine/drivetrain. The ones they sell domestic are mostly about looks. The base model often comes with leather and power everything and a ridiculous weak engine either gas or diesel. Of course the speed limit in the city is like 30 or 40 kph (20or 25 mph) with speed cameras all over the place so Maybe they figure they don't need that much power. Hell the "interstate" speed limit is about 100 kph (60mph).

Ask any one who has been in the same type car in korea and the states, what you need is the korean interior and the US underpinnings. At least from what I've seen

Was present in Forza Motorsport 2 as well, although the earlier model with a Ford V8 instead of the Hyundai V6.

Interesting car to drive, snap oversteers like a monster though

The chassis is a tubular spaceframe, clothed in a carbon fibre body.

Beat their usual chassis rails which are aircraft riveted and fall apart enough to warrant a wordwide recall. Worst brand ever this may be the only decent car ever made by them which i assume will be a handful.
