Detroit Motor Show - Kia's aggressively-styled GT4 Stinger concept is sure to be one of the stars of the show.
The 'petrol-head' designers at Kia's Californian design studio created this rear-wheel drive 2+2 seater as a modern salute to the “purebred, affordable sports cars” of yesteryear.
Or as Kia's US design chief Tom Kearns puts it, the GT4 Stinger is “a throwback to days when driving a car was a visceral experience that wasn't muted by electronic gimmickry.”
To smoke up the back tyres in style, Kia threw in a 235kW version of its 2-litre direct injection turbopetrol engine, which is mated to a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox.
