Kia has revealed that the company is currently developing a car that will be the fastest accelerating car they have ever made.
With reports claiming to be the new Kia ‘Stinger GT’, a four-door performance coupe, Kia has revealed that they have set an acceleration target of 5.1 seconds.
Confirmed to be revealed on January 28th, 2017, Kia have set up an all new website (thecurveahead.net) and a YouTube web series of teasers called ‘The Curve Ahead’ for the car.
In September this year, Kia released the first video showing the car driving around the Nordschleide layout of the Nurburgring and reaching speeds of 244km/h on the straight. The second video which was last publish on the Kia Motors Worldwide channel is titled “The Fastest Accelerating Kia”. This video shows the performance car’s prototype being driven at around Kia’s Namyang R&D centre high speed circuit, and concluding the message “0-100KPH acceleration; 5.1 seconds. (Pre-homologation Development Target)”.
The dedicated website reveals a countdown to the official reveal of the car, with a glimpse of a pending third video which is to be released soon which hints at another possible teaser based on the car’s design. The third video will likely reveal some parts of what the car would finally look like. At the bottom of the site, Kia also used images of the Stinger and GT concept cars which suggests that the car may be based along those lines. Rumour has it that the car will be called the ‘Stinger GT’ and will get the 3.3-litre turbo V6 from the Genesis G70.
