I didn't realize how much attraction this car would get from people who like to race.
I don't like racing; I just like accelerating decently quick sometimes.
Not even 600 miles and a Civic Si, Mustang V6, Audi A4, Genesis Coupe 2.0T, and a VW GTI have come along beside me and would cruise alongside and start revving and pace along with me.
Of course, I just ignored all of them and kept going (some kept following).
Now I sense more attraction once I start tuning.
All I can say is, it feels good and I still have no idea how fast/slow my car is compared to all the other competition out there.

I've gotten the same response, but I'm not a racer.
I would consider tracking this car one day but street racers deserve to be hit in the face with the brick of justice.

I've gotten a few looks but no pacing or race offers.

A lot of that is because where i'm at in Atlanta I'm surrounded by a lot of nice new cars and either I'm on congested streets or big highways where you can drive fast during rush hour.

But I didn't buy the VT to race anyway.

I don't think the Genesis Coupe wanted to race you, I pace genesis coupes for as long as a i can but were not trying to race. its just bad ass to see two awesome cars right next to each other

The Genesis Coupe was the first car that made me respect Hyundai. It was and still is too small and coupe-y for me to buy one for a daily driver.

That's why I was so surprised when Hyundai brought out the VT because on the surface it is so similar to the Genesis Coupe. But it fits nicely in to the niche of a more affordable, roomy and practical sports car. Being a FWD hatch it also appeals to the tuner crowd - maybe more than the GC does.

Yeah... I wish they'd throw the GC engine in here. That'd make it perfect.

Had a guy in a Z06 pace me today on the way to work, then he gave me thumbs up and dropped back. I get that a lot, people just pacing to check out the car. Must be the MG.
