The golden flame of Kia GT4 Stinger heats up NAIAS 2014 January 10th, 2014

Among the endless rows of “new” and “bold” car lineups at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), you’ll still be caught off-guard at the sight Kia’s breath-taking “Ignition Yellow” GT4 Stinger. Some of its features are worth teasing.

The Flame inside that Shoots the Arrow

Beneath the low wedge of the sculpted hood resides a tuned version of Kia’s proven 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline direct injected (T-GDI) four-cylinder engine pumping out an impressive 315 horsepower. The hooves hit the ground via a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission that routes power to the rear wheels where 275/35R20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tires meet the asphalt. Staggered 235/35R20 Pirelli P-Zeros nestle beneath the front fenders.

 

Sheer Power under Impeccable Curvature

Custom 20-inch aluminum center-lock wheels feature carbon fiber inserts for strength and weight reduction. Tucked inside the massive wheels and bringing the GT4 to a halt are Brembo Gran Tourismo two-piece cross-drilled rotors with four-piston calipers. And underpinning the GT4 Stinger’s sculpted body is a custom chassis with an independent double wishbone suspension.

 

The GT4 Stinger will be unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, coming up just around the corner—so don’t be left in the dust.
