2014 – KIA GT4 STINGER CONCEPT

After showing the GT4 Stinger sports concept through teasers before the Detroit Motor Show, Kia waited for the opening of the American show to reveal the final version of the 2 + 2 seat coupe. The responsibility for creating the template stayed with the California design office team. Despite maintaining the already-known ‘tiger-nose’ grille, the GT4’s look brings evolution. The grille itself has grown larger, serving as an air intake to help cool the engine, while the silhouette has strong creases. The lighting is made by led bulbs, positioned in a vertical fillet. In the rear, the drop of the ceiling is accentuated, characteristic of the coupes.Under the hood, one of the lighter four-cylinder engines in the world. The 2.0 turbo with direct injection is capable of yielding up to 315 horses. The gearbox is automatic and has six speeds and the traction is rear. No other performance figures were released. In addition to generous power numbers, another concern of Kia was to make your sport as light as possible. For this, it adopted carbon fiber even in less usual places, such as in the center of the wheels and in the front diffuser. Forget conventional door handles to open the doors. The function is carried out by strips of fabric. There is also no sound system. According to Kia’s head of North American design office, Tom Kearns, “The sound system starts under the hood. The loudspeakers are the exhaust outlets. “The result is a weight of just over 1300 kg.
