Today, the next-gen 2010 Hyundai Equus officially broke cover in a pair of photographs wearing body molding obviously borrowed from the German side of the closet. Looking poised and ready to pounce on both the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series, the Hyundai Equus will hit the Korean market next year underpinned by an extended-wheelbase version of the Hyundai Genesis as well as both the Genesis’ engine options. Later, the Equus is expected to add two supercharged engine options, including a 4.6L V8 and 5.5L V8, rumored to be capable of producing upwards of 400-horsepower.
Although the Hyundai Equus is strongly expected to make the jump stateside, Hyundai has yet to confirm any future U.S. release date. Should they ultimately decided to introduce the Equus to the U.S., however, the price tag might prove an insurmountable hurdle. Currently, the 2010 Hyundai Equus is scheduled to hit the Korean market with a beginning price of ?130,000,000 KRW, which converts to approximately $93,000 USD.
We say: $93k for a Hyundai? Not in this lifetime, chingu.
