Korean car manufacturers are a force to be reckoned with on the world's automotive stage in recent years. Their cars have more flair and sportiness in years past, and the Tiburon that was unveiled at the 1996 Geneva Motor Show was a shining example of that trend.

The head-turning Tiburon coupe featured a sleek, muscular body that appropriately lived up to its name, which translates to "shark" in Spanish. The name of the car in its home market was Turbulence. The U.S.-spec car was powered by a 1.8-liter inline-4 that sent 128 HP to its front wheels.

What made the car a big hit in the U.S. was its low price, making it one of the best values in the 2-door market. Its success spawned many aftermarket versions, even those with turbocharged engines. The success of the first-generation car led to an even more potent version for the next model, which bowed at the 1998 Seoul Motor Show. The second-generation came powered by a 2.7-liter V-6 that brought its horsepower rating up to 173 HP.

The car was discontinued in 2008, but in its place came the even more stylish Genesis Coupe in 2009. But the Tiburon will be remembered in the annals of Korean car-making history as the vehicle that put the country on the world sports coupe map.
