Kia is coming out with a special edition for the Stinger called the Atlantica and there's only going to be 500 units sold. Based on the Stinger’s GT2 AWD, it gets Deep Chroma Blue paint, 19-inch wheels from the Euro-spec stinger, trunk badge from the Korean version, and those “1 of 500” badge. Inside is Espresso Brown Nappa leather upholstery, black suede headliner, wireless phone charging, a 360-degree camera, and heated rear seats.

Not my cup of tea unless Kia bumps up the engine's performance.

Is this an indicator that the Stinger isn't flying off the showroom floor? If they really wanted to attract buyers who were on the fence, this edition should have come with performance upgrades of some kind. Don't think people will be interested in shelling out even more for a Stinger, with some relatively modest upgrades to aesthetics.

Not really an indicator of how well a model is selling, more like offering people something more unique than the average Stinger. Some will be willing to pay for a limited production trim even though the powertrain is just the same. This would appeal to more potential buyers if Kia tweaked something in the engine or how the Stinger GT drives, but aesthetic upgrades only, I don't see the atlantica flying off showroom floors.

Limited to just 500 models it seems that Kia knows this. So with that little of them to go around they will fly off the shelves. but it will set the stage for more high volume special trims. that i look forward to.

The Stinger is already unique. I'm not sure special paint job and new upholstery will be enough to justify the Atlantica's price. I think it would have sold better as a trim option, than a pre built model. Guess we'll see how quickly it "flies off the shelves".
