Noted Genesis hawker and general ass-out hoon Rhys Millen stole the Pikes Peak 2WD time attack record for production based cars in his modified Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Millen tore up the 12.4 mile course to the 14,110-foot summit in 12 minutes, 9.397 seconds. Impressive.
According to Hyundai’s press release, Millen crossed the finish line with both rear tires down to the belts, this from “power-sliding his Genesis Coupe mere inches away from guard rails, trees and 2,000-foot cliffs…”
Alright, Hyundai, you made a REALLY sweet car but, you’ve got to stay hip if you want dough from the young people. All the spikey-hairs with their hoods up call it ‘drifting’ and you should, too. That banner on your Pikes Peak car doesn’t read ‘Formula Power-Slide,’ does it?
