The brand name reported we might eventually get our personal in the States, and it is really now below. Compared with the South Korean design, ours only seats 4, not six. On prime of that, ours is a confined edition Genesis pledging to provide just 600 in this article, each individual commencing at $78,295 soon after the $1,095 desired destination cost.
