    The Hyundai that will never see production

    Making the Tiburón RWD. Fitting a massaged V6 with variable valve timing boasting over 280hp, then a GT with twin turbos and 385hp. Then there's a GT-8 package with an all aluminum 5.6L 535hp OHV V8(long live pushrod V8s)

    Rear fenders are bigger, lower front bumper, hood without that "valley", touched up the side window, made a nicer door handle, got rid of those side vents, made the side line start from the front fender since the vents are gone.


    Also, let me I point out I'm the same GTO_Fan found at Motor Trend and AutoWeek.

    It looks good. I get a Mitsubishi feel to it.
    The next gen Tiburon is supposed to go rear wheel drive.

    Very nice looking, and with those side skirts it does remind me of a Eclipse, but that's a good thing

    It never should have made production in the first place!
    Although I like your version much better than the original, it's still an Eclipse chaser. Or maybe it's just the color....moving on...

    If oldsmobile had a small coupe when it was still in existance, it would probably look pretty close to this chop. I think that you did a pretty nice job...

    Think its the Olds headlights and the lack of grill at the botton of the hood.
