Wide body for Stinger

Well, west coast customs did it again.. A Widebody Kia Stinger's gonna be presented at the SEMA Show this year.

Take a look at this monster, what do you think?

Sure gets a lot of attention, even if it comes to Texas

Whatever they do, copying the current popular body kits won't be the best way to go about this so hopefully that's not what they're doing but instead creating something truly unique to the Stinger, sort of like what's done to Super GT cars but in a production road going car.

Well, I guess they've decided to choose a well-tried path and create something that already had a success. In my opinion, this body kit looks pretty good, and there is nothing bad about "copying" well-done models. Anyways, hope we will see more of them in the nearest future!

I've always hated slammed cars and I still do, such a waste of a Stinger in my opinion. They're lowering the front and rear suspension, maybe enough to make the car unusable in residential areas and anywhere with bumps.

Yeah, that's the most common problem with any custom body, you can't drive your car more than 10 kmph in residential areas. However, as everyone knows beauty requires sacrifice, so I would buy it anyways

To each their own, but widebody kits are more for looks IMO. You may get a bit of additional traction and fit the Stinger with wider tires, but that's pretty much it. You're also adding a lot of weight, reducing fuel economy and affecting the vehicle's launch time. I'd use that wide-body kit elsewhere.

If not Stinger what car would you decorate with a wide body kit? I mean, that's probably the best class of cars to get them nice skirts, isn't it?
