This is a very exciting time for Kia owners and enthusiasts: they are heading bravely into what is a very high-tech dimension that awaits for anyone ready for a new ride. Numerous examples of great gadgetry on the inside, an otherworldly chassis and frame, and many futuristic safety features are just some of the elements that potential buyers wade through. What Kia has the dire right to be proud of most is their core engineering competency, and the ways in which is has drastically improved just over the past five years. Albert Biermann is the brains behind much of what was relayed to the drawing board for the Stinger: as Head of Vehicle Test and High-Performance Development, he was nabbed from BMW Motorsport's development platform 3 years ago.
What he brings to the table is a skill that is decidedly more than just a bit rousing for Kia devotees: he takes on the task of making sure that Kia's latest products have enough substance to measure up when pitted against the best of European brands. He also wants potential buyers to realize that this is not a strictly track car: it can be pushed as one, but it is still developed to be the everyday ride that gets you from A to B in high-end style. The true magic that the driver gets to experience with the advent of this car is the high-speed stability from the long wheelbase, which helps immensely while taking tight corners. The end result is a ride that doesn't truly feel like a bigger car, yet has all of the bells and whistles of a true luxury machine.
You'll all be interested to know that this one gets to 60 MPH in under five seconds, and will be available with a choice of three powerful engines: one of them is a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6, capable of producing 370 ps with a maximum torque output of 52 kgf.m. This is part of the haplessly high-strung recipe that gives the Stinger the ability to accelerate so well, and gives this car the honor of being the most powerful that Kia has ever manufactured. Come pay us a visit at Jim Butler, and see just how awesome this new line of Kia power cars is going to be: you'll want to claim your keys and title firsthand for a true game-changing and cutting-edge vehicle.
