Hyundai Genesis V8 – 380 HP ?

Word on the street ( the street being a car discussion forum ) is that the new Hyundai 4.6 liter V8 that will power the Genesis will be no slouch in the power department. In fact, an as-yet unconfirmed inside source is talking about 380 HP – that’s a three hundred and eighty horsepower Hyundai. Apparently this source has been right before concerning various Hyundai / Kia information, so there’s a good bet he’s right this time around.

The big question is, are we talking about the Detroit way to get 380 HP, or the Honda way? By that, of course, I mean will there be comparable torque to complement the tremendous horsepower, or will we be looking at a 380 HP / 240 lb-ft of torque mill? Time will tell, but either way, that’s an impressive horsepower number from anyone, even more impressive from a Hyundai.
