Default Strange car...

OK, so it's clearly a Hyundai coupe, but... any ideas?


Almost like an Aston Martin badge...

I was attempting to be funny by calling it Aspiration because of the badges. Unsuccessfully, it seems!

Ah sorry. I actually thought there would be a car called that - isn't there an "Aspire" or something? I mean, it's the sort of name the Japanese would come up with, isn't it

It's a 'Genesis' badge, which is Hyundai's luxury brand. No idea of the model though.

Just been doing a bit more nosing around on the web and the car appears to be a standard Hyundai Coupe SIII. Looks like someone has stuck Genesis badges on it to bling it up at some point in its history.
