KIA GT4 Stinger Concept





Kia is gearing up to reveal a sports car concept during the Detroit Auto Show next week, showing the last in its battery of teaser images today.

The car will house a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine pumping 315 HP through a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels. Those 20-inch hoops are shod in Pirelli P-Zero rubber measuring a performance-ready 235/35R20 in the front and staggered to 275/35R20 for the rear.

The car also gets two-piece cross-drilled rotors and four-piston brake calipers, all sitting on an independent double-wishbone suspension. In other words, Kia is bringing out the performance guns.

The South Korean brand hasnít said anything yet about post-show plans for the concept, but the gap in its product portfolio is certainly there.

The suspension components mentioned today also suggest that this could be more than a re-badged and re-bodied version of the current Hyundai Genesis coupe. Instead, it seems Kia might be readying a sports car separate from Hyundai that will ride on its own chassis.

Yup, that about sums it up. I'm glad that another company is getting started making a sports car. I've really liked what Kia has starting doing with their designs, so hopefully this will actually happen.
