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.
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.
