Literally in Spanish = "shark." Used to refer to a player, a major man whore.
Mami, avoid that tiburon; he brings nothing but a heartache.

Automobile designed and produced by Hyundai. Tiburon means shark and this is reflected in the "gills" on both sides of the cars. Over seas the car is refered to as Tuscani. The Tiburon has a very sleek body which is full of curves. Excellent styling combined with unmatched performance for the price. The GS model includes either a 4 spd automatic or a 5 spd manual transmission, and a 138 hp 4 cylinder engine (which has plenty of power to get around town) To add to the styling it also includes a catback dual exhaust with polished tips. The GT and SE both share the 172 hp V6 (a whole lot of power considering how lite and small the car is). The GT can be bought with either the 4 spd automatic or a 5 spd manual. However the SE contains a 6 spd manual transmission and can be purchased in several "special" colors such as orange crush. Four wheel disc brakes provide high performance braking for the 17 inch rims with michilen tires. The interior is very modern and user friendly. The guages light up red and the GT and SE models both have metallic trim. Some journalists have even reported the styling to be similar to that of a ferrari.
The GS starts out at a little below $17,000
The GT and the SE range from $19,000-$23,000
I personally own a Hyundai Tiburon and am very happy. The styling draws a lot of attention towards the car.

Tiburon means shark. The first time I heard it being used was in a Puerto Rican reggaeton song. I became curious and later figured out what the word meant by doing a little research.

Sharks are, or can be dangerous and aggressive hunters of prey.

The way the artist uses the word in the song below explains how he is setting a trap by tempting a female with his sexuality. Once she falls for his trap, he will be able to take her and have his way with her. In other words, he is sharking her.
Lyrics in spanish and engilsh translation for the reggaeton song, Tiburón-

Tiburón

Si te calientas, mami, porque te estoy tentando
(¡Dale, papi, ponlo ponlo!)
(¡Que esto es dando y dando!)
Tú eres mi presa y te estoy asechando
(¡Dale, papi, ponlo ponlo!)
(¡Que esto es dando y dando!)
Si te calientas, mami, porque te estoy tentando
(¡Dale, papi, ponlo ponlo!)
(¡Que esto es dando y dando!)
Tú eres mi presa y te estoy asechando
(¿Tiburón, que tú buscas en la orilla?)

Translation:

You're hot, mami, because I'm tempting you.
(Do it, papi, put it put it!)
(This that you are giving and giving!)
You are my prey and I am setting a trap
(Do it, papi, put it put it!)
(This that you are giving and giving!)
You're hot, mami, because I'm tempting you.
(Do it, papi, put it put it!)
(This that you are giving and giving!)
You are my prey and I am setting a trap
(¿Shark, what did you find at the border?)

A Korean car college girls think is fast just because it has dual exhaust.
Kelly: "Look at me, I can peel out in my Tiburon and intimidate the guys!"

Me: "Not the ones that realize that your car is actually slower than a Grand Am."
