Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Truck ram fifteen hundred our SUV the Jaguar supercar of the year the asked him on DBS Sabella gather. All right. What's left on the list that car of the year? This is kind of exciting. A lot of people have a hard time which using carbon at twenty vehicles or eligible to be car of the year. This year traveled all had a good time with all of them out of the year is the Genesis g seventy and it's an easy win for Genesis. Because the competition is all really good Howdy. A six seven was in this bunch. But this kinda came out of nowhere didn't expect it to be as amazing when I first learned about it. But then you have to look at who's behind it album who came from BMW's 'em vehicles. Who is a guy tuned, the vehicle, and you look at the designer the list of who's who is basically over at Genesis now building cars. From Audi Lamborghini. They just got a who's who of caused us. I'd say, and so it was pretty much a no brainer. Joining us on the phone is my friend. Jeff Jabotinsky, Jeff congratulations on winning the car of the year. It's deserve by Genesis. Thank you, Nick. And you said it better than you better than I could we have such an incredible team working on the products at Genesis right now, and it really is an honor to be selected as your car the year. Driving a lot of cars. Yeah. It's tell me it was this like a major recruiting drives several years ago because I I looked down at who's working re-genesis now, and it really is a cream of the crop from supercars and luxury cars across the world. Yeah. I mean, it's exactly that Genesis knew that to compete with the best vehicles in the world world's needs to have the best team. So they went and they recruited Luke Donka, bulky design. I'm as you mentioned Albert Bearman who had a pretty key role. In developing the suspension and the handling for g seventy and and more people than I could list right now who can with an incredible background. And they're going to be developing. The products are Genesis going forward. So the rumor is is a lot more coming from Genesis. A you have three vehicles g seventy eighty ninety right now. The most significant probably is the g seventy it's the newest vehicle out of the fleet. There are very few people that didn't think g seventy wasn't one of the best cars to come out in two thousand eighteen. Yeah. And you know, everything that you're saying, I mean, it's something that that we know that when people drive the car, they they understand it g seventy you really have to drive to understand. I mean, it's it's beautiful. Look at the numbers are impressive. But the second you get behind the wheel if you're driving or you appreciate just, you know. A complete luxury experience you're gonna find something you really like to. Let's talk about facts, I would expect this to start around the fifty thousand dollar range is a premium vehicle, but it starts on the thirty five thirty four nine to get into the g seventy with with the two liter turbo engine. It's a really degrade price point when when you look at the rest of the competition and the other vehicles that are coming out in that in that segment, you have to option them up a lot to get the future content. You get even on a base g seventy when we went to the launch in New Hampshire. New england. We were we were at the launch with you, the the didn't want, you know, you guys didn't want us to be babies about it. He wanted us to get out and really push the car, in fact, so much so that you let us without a co driver do auto cross and do our drifting of the vehicle as would will. And that's probably the part that made me fall in love with it. The most you don't scared to let people play with it. Nick you, and I have spent enough time in the car together that I wouldn't be scared. I think I think that we had we had absolutely no qualms. And no, no reservations about that. I think one of the fun things is Genesis has really making itself into a brand that is competing heavily with the competition. More to come from Genesis, Jeff. Absolutely. You should be watching Genesis very closely as we get ready to unveil a bunch more products, including the long-awaited sports vehicle. All right. I'm holding my breath. Jeff, thanks for joining us on radio to this day. And congratulations.
