The Hyundai Genesis Crashing To Curb Is A Colorful If Expensive Spinout

We can’t blame anyone driving this Hyundai Genesis Coupe for going too fast. At least from what we can see in the footage, however, drivers are completely unprepared for how their own car will react on wet roads. All things considered, at least they only damaged their own vehicle, avoiding crashing into other cars and poles. But what actually happened?

This video is now viral on Reddit and shows the black Hyundai Genesis Coupe from later model years. We couldn’t identify the exact model year and trim level, although the vehicle does have at least a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four under the hood with either 210 horsepower (157 kilowatts) or 256 hp (191 kW) depending on the year. produced. If it has the optional V6 powertrain, we are dealing with a sports car that produces between 300 hp (223 kW) and 348 hp (260 kW).

Despite the grinding under the hood, the driver of the vehicle somehow lost control on the wet and narrow residential road. We can’t say if the driver tried to do something like drift but some users are active Reddit suggest the crash was the result of a failed drift attempt.

From what we can see, most likely, the driver lost control due to the wet road and their inadequate reaction to the vehicle’s initial slide.

The accident occurred on October 19 and available video shows the Hyundai Genesis Coupe first hitting the pavement with its front wheel. The vehicle then continued to slide and the rear wheel also ended up hitting the pavement. Thankfully, the car missed the pole, although a collision with the pavement could be enough to cost the car a loss. Damage to the front axle could be minimal, but we don’t think the same is true of the rear axle.

What is the moral message of the story? If you don’t feel ready and comfortable behind the wheel, it’s better to slow down, especially if the road is wet. Also, get to know your car better and how it reacts in different situations.
