That's pretty freaking sweet! So I take it, it'll have a soft top? *HA HA* Now we can all be ricers, go steal the "Spyder" emblems off of Eclipses, and put it on our rides! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/moon.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Cool stuff though. Since it's a convertible, I'm sure it weighs less too. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Bargain Soft-top Exposed

The cover has been blown on Hyundai's ambitious plans to take the cabrio market by storm with this drop-top edition of the forthcoming Coup? Developed in Germany but styled at Hyundai's Los Angeles studio, the newcomer is expected to go on sale in 2003.
It's based around the all-new Coup? and insiders claim the cabrio will be every inch as practical as its hard-topped stablemate. Carrying a premium of around ?,500 over the Coup? the entry-level convertible will cost ?6,000, making it the cheapest four-seater soft-top car on the market. Featuring the 105bhp 1.6-litre engine that's destined to debut in the Coup? and mated to a five-speed gearbox, the basic cabriolet will be more about style than performance. However, driving enthusiasts should be more than satisfied with the promise of the 2.7-litre V6 model. Set to cost ?0,500, it will have a 0-60mph time of less than eight seconds and a 135mph top speed.

To ensure that the handling is up to standard, additional stiffening will help reduce body shake. Safety is another key concern, and will be addressed with extra side-impact protection and rollover bars. As with owners of the Coup? the cabrio driver will enjoy electrically adjustable Recaro seats and the reassurance of all-round disc brakes. Traction control will be included and a power hood is expected to be standard throughout the range.

From autoexpress.co.uk "

And I got this from t-h-c.org

I think the roll bars will be a pop out, or dynamic, not stationary.

actually it will weigh more than its counterpart, because it is a convertible. this is true for most convertible cars.

Yup, they add a lot of weight by stiffening the chassis to make up for the removed top.

For example, the Del Sol is one of the heaviest Civics ever made <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>.

You sure that's a Tiburon? Sure looks like a Mustang convertible to me. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Convertables are cool and all .... and it would be great for around town and things but ... Like someone all ready said...I'll stick with my 01!! ....Unless of course I become rich and can trade in my other car for a new Convertable , but I definetly like the idea of a 6cyl. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
