Hyundai has developed a new Lambda II 3.3-litre Twin-turbo GDi V6 petrol engine, reveals a report by The Korean Car Blog. The exclusive images from the report reveal the features and specifications of this new engine for the first time.

Lambda II 3.3-litre Twin-turbo GDi V6 features

As per the report, the 3.3-litre twin-turbo engine incorporates Intermediated CVVT (I-CVVT) – Hyundai’s latest iteration of Continuously Variable Valve Timing system and very small turbos designed to spin quicker, with reduced lag. The 3,342 cc engine develops 365 hp and 379 lb.-ft. (514 Nm) of torque.

Most likely, this is the same engine that was fitted in the HND-9 concept unveiled at the 2013 Seoul Motor Show. The HND-9 concept has been widely speculated to inspire the next-generation Genesis Coupe.

The new twin-turbo engine is likely to be seen on the upcoming second-generation Genesis Coupe. The currently sold Genesis Coupe’s 3.8-litre Dual CVVT petrol engine churns out 348 hp and 295 lb.-ft. (400 Nm) of torque. This engine could be the one to be replaced by the new 3.3-litre Twin-turbo which produces more power and significantly higher torque.

Moreover the new engine would be more efficient and less CO2 emitting. The all-new Genesis Coupe is likely to arrive sometime in 2016, in which the new Twin-turbo engine is likely to debut.
