Maybe at that angle, fuel had problem getting through the carbs?

No, no... you almost guaranteed I'd get an Equus for my personal use. That's the job I want. From what you're saying, there's a lot of them out there. Beats driving a Sentra!

The article was about high end cardholders owning random Hyundais...but yes, I would take an Equus over a Sentra in a heartbeat, too
Regarding the Equus, I wonder if the suspension can be manually raised and lowered, I remember the one I saw seemed to be riding pretty high.

It has an adjustable air suspension, so that might control height.

Maybe Hyundai can buy and repackage the Maybach. (WSJ)
And knock around $200,000 off the price while doing so.

The Equus has about the same amount of elegance and classic design as the overdone tacky Maybach.

congrats on a well considered purchase. As it relates to this topic, however, I wonder what types of reaction are you getting when you tell folks that 'this is the world's first $60k Hyundai'. Live in a city of several million, have only seen 1 on the road and thought its road presence was somewhat unremarkable.

Maybe it appeals to people who crave exclusivity in their cars.

exclusivity is but one characteristic of a luxury car. Unfortunately though a another characteristic is what other folks think it is. Ford can make some darn luxurious 'Fords' but they cannot make a luxury car until they call it a Lincoln. And even that one is debatable. Same can be said for Chevy/Cadillac, VW/Audi, Toyota/Lexus etc etc. MB is unquestionably a luxury mfgr on this side of the pond but much more of a mass mfgr elsewhere. Like it or not, it all has to do with people's perceptions and may not have any basis in fact beyond that.
Such is the plight of a Hyundai branded automobile ever finding a place in the luxury market
