times are changing and I guess Hyundai thought it would be in the companies best interest to chop the V8 since it can't be as fuel efficient as the V6. A lot of brands are getting rid of bigger engines and going for smaller high output engines, some running boost.

Leaving the V8 for just the R-Spec model was a good move. I bet it was due to low sales and not fuel efficiency
