Bargain Executive Express: 2012 Hyundai Genesis R-spec

If you are not a brand snob and can appreciate 13 second 1/4 mile runs from your heated and cooled seats, we have a contender worthy of your consideration today.  In 2012 Hyundai added the hot rod R-spec option package to the Genesis sedan.  The most noteworthy changes were the addition of the 5.0 429 horsepower V8 engine, special headlights, and 19″ wheels.  The R-spec car was pretty close to $50k only a five years ago so I did a double take when I saw one well south of the DT price threshold.  Find this 2012 Hyundai Genesis R-spec for sale in Monroe, CT for $12,000 via craigslist.

The seller mentions the Genesis shares company with his BMW M5 and winter duty Jeep.  The car is said to have been babied and never seen snow.  It has 131,000 miles on it and has always been garaged. 

The seller mentions the adaptive cruise control which helps prevent you from riding up the car in front of you’s ass.  The Genesis is also equipped with a lane departure warning system and traction control.  All Genesis sedans came with Hyundai’s own 8 speed automatic transmission for 2012.

The seller rattles off the many standard features found on a luxury vehicle of this stature: bluetooth, sunroof, power everything, in dash cd changer, navigation, huge back seat with connections for baby seats, special floor mats, and leather seating.
