Kia Built a Gran Turismo Sedan and They Call it Stinger! – 2018 San Diego International Auto Show

I have been a fan of Kia ever since Peter Schreyer took over as head of design, and made me take notice of their cars.  The Stinger fits right into the Kia family, it is certainly not lacking any signature design elements, like the tiger-nose grill and offset C-pillar.  They’re just now made even more aggressive, giving the Stinger an “Optima on crack” look.  This car is absolutely stunning.  But it’s Kia’s engineers who finally had their moment in the spotlight, as this Stinger is built to be a true Gran Turismo car.   With a range topping 3.3 liter Twin Turbo V6 Engine, producing 365 horsepower, South Korea’s little car company that could is going after the big boys.  BMW, Mercedes, et al, take notice, and prepare for battle!
