The torque number doesn't sound right. It is 376 lb-ft maybe.

@Super8
Hyundai has been blatantly ripping off Mercedes designs for years now, really since the start of the new millenium. Look at an early-2000's Hyundai Sonata, then look at an early-2000's C-Class; that kind of similarity can't possibly be coincidence.

But as it's said: if you're going to steal, steal from the best.

Somehow the font remind me to Mercedes E63 AMG.

5.0 V8? I bet this car can bully some SRT-8 Chrysler and of course standard Mustang GT. I wonder when Japan will make something like this.

I test drove this car a year ago, just after a test of a challenger srt8 392, and this Hyundai is very impressive. Korean cars are not "korean" anymore
