Kia GT4 Stinger concept debuts in Detroit with RWD and 311bhp [video]

Kia’s mystery concept for Detroit Auto Show has been revealed and it looks quite interesting.

The GT4 Stinger concept is a rear-wheel drive 2+2 sports coupe with power coming from a 311bhp 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged direct-injected petrol T-GDI engine linked to six-speed close-ratio manual transmission.

It is unlike any other production Kia, with its tiger nose grille the main similarity with current production models.

The concept boasts a long bonnet, low vertical headlights with LEDs, bulging wheel arches, LED taillights, dual exhaust tips glass hatch and see-through A-pillars.

Underpinning the “Ignition Yellow” body is a custom chassis with independent double wishbone suspension. The wheelbase is just 2,619mm, overall length is 4,310mm, width is 1,890mm and it is just 1,250mm in height. Weight is 1,304kg with a weight distribution nearly perfectly at 52 per cent up front and 48 per cent at the rear.

The GT4 Stinger concept rides on bespoke 20-inch alloy centre-lock wheels wrapped with Pirelli P Zero tyres measuring 235/35 ZR20.

The interior is very clean and minimalistic, showing a race-like bucket seats, flat-bottomed steering wheel, rubber floor mat and billet-aluminium pedals.

It is an interesting concept, but unlikely to enter production in the near future.
