Presented by the new Kia GT Stinger V6.
New Stinger is strong and aggressive at the same time, and there is no doubt that he will become the flagship of the brand.
The idea of Koreans that were born in 2011, finally brought to life.
For the first time, the Kia GT concept was shown in Frankfurt in 2011, and in 2014 was presented another show car named GT4 Stinger.Now the world has already presented a production car which combines the idea of the first concept and the name of the second. The novelty is conceptually close to his predecessor, only gone non-standard doors. New Stinger is strong and aggressive at the same time, and there is no doubt that he will become the flagship of the brand. The machine is quite large – 4.8 metres in length and 1.87 metres in width. She had almost the longest wheelbase among its competitors – as much as 2.9 meters.
It is clear that the second-row passengers will love the amount of space. Yes and the trunk is rather big. Kia says that it easily fits a Golf bag to a Golf course. And the seats fold completely unnecessary. Quality running Stinger GT was polished, as usual, on Nurburgring. And to buyers of the car will be in two versions. It will be a sedan of classic design or all-wheel drive sports car almost.
The car is equipped with rear-wheel drive mechanical limited slip differential and four-wheel drive will use the newly developed Korean the dynamic traction control. Since the premiere in Detroit, the public showed only the us version of the Stinger. This car chetyrehstennoy two-liter turbocharged engine producing 255 HP and a torque of 352 Nm. And rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles are equipped with valmistuneet automatic transmission.
For the remaining markets will be available and more powerful version of the GT. She will receive the 3.3-liter 365-horsepower V6 engine. A torque of 510 Nm is peredaetsya to the rear axle or to both axles through the same automatic transmission. In this embodiment, the Stinger GT accelerates to 270 km/h, and the first hundred of it is gaining in 5.1 seconds. The smaller version is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels with tires 225/45/ R18, the more powerful is 19-inch with tires 225/40 R19 front and 225/35 at the rear.
Already in the database here installed sport brakes with Brembo four-cylinder calipers in the front and rear cylinder. In salon deep Stinger sport buckets covered in Nappa leather. Interestingly, the devices remain analog, and all necessary information, including the time of the passage of the racing circle and the amount of congestion in turns, shows a large monitor. It is not clear when Stinger will make it to Europe, and talking about the price makes no sense. But American prices yet either. Will have to wait a bit.
