The Stinger traces its roots to the Kia GT Concept from the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show and the Kia GT4 Stinger from the 2014 North American International Auto Show.
|“||When Korean carmaker Kia tries to butt heads with the Germans, the Kia Stinger proves they don’t pull any punches. First off, the “point” of the Stinger comes straight from former BMW M-division head Albert Biermann, who has been leading the company’s charge into performance vehicles. You can also thank Peter Schreyer – formerly of Audi and Volkswagen – for the Stinger’s sharp looks. The Stinger’s looks may grab you, but the real knock-out is in the way it drives. Rear-wheel-drive and a 365-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 places the Stinger head-to-head against the renowned European sport sedans. This Stinger is Kia’s statement that they can do more than bring affordability to the car market; they are out to prove that refined performance is not the sole purview of Europe.||”|
