Kia shows off rear-drive Stinger again before Detroit auto showThu, 09 Jan 2014
Kia dropped another teaser shot of its GT4 Stinger, headed for the Detroit auto show next week. It's an overhead view, giving us a good look at the fender flares.
The GT4 will house a 2.0-liter turbocharged, direct injected four-cylinder, which delivers 315 hp. A close-ratio six-speed manual will send power rearward(!) to Pirelli P-Zero tires. Custom 20-inch center-lock wheels feature carbon fiber inserts.
Brembo two-piece rotors are clamped by four-piston calipers when some of that speed needs to be scrubbed. Sporty driving dynamics are provided by the independent double wishbone suspension.
We saw a few more pictures last week, and we'll see the full reveal on Monday when the GT4 Stinger debuts at the Detroit auto show.
About the Detroit Auto Show
The North American International Auto Show, known to most as the Detroit auto show, continues to serve as a barometer for the entire industry. This year, we'll expect to see the new Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the 2015 Ford Mustang and the BMW M3 and M4. The 2014 Detroit auto show is held at Cobo Hall in Detroit, MI and is open to the public from January 18-26.
