No your eyes are not playing tricks on you. This is the brand new Kia Stinger which was launched at the Detroit Autoshow.
Kia have been true to their word when they said that they wanted to produce a GT car back in 2011. Here it is!
So what is the New Kia Stinger?
It is a 5 seater saloon with a choice of different engines and drivetrains. In this short blog I will be concentrating on the top model. The Stinger GT.

We Blog Any Car thoughts………..
This will be a halo car for Kia and it’s good to see a new manufacturer playing with the big guys of sports saloon cars (think BMW M, Mercedes Benz AMG etc).
It will be very interesting to see how the car will be perceived in Europe…. especially if it drives as good if not better than its European counterparts.
Remember, this is why I’m writing this blog. It’s not about the badge. It’s about the cars looks, feel, price and drive. So far all I have to go on are the pictures…It is a quite unique looking car from the front, side and rear.
