The Kia Stinger GT is definitely a beauty to look at, and already does provide quite the performance numbers to keep many happy. But of course, everyone always wants more. Thankfully, the Stinger GT is capable of providing more. BUT unfortunately, it just isn't planned at the moment. That doesn't go to say that it won't be appearing after, depending on what the market feedback returns with.
Do you think that 365hp and 376lb-ft of torque is enough or would you want more than that?"The car technically has more potential no doubt, but at this point there is no plan to do more," Biermann explained. "We have to launch this car, and see how it does in the market place. What kind of customers do we get? What would be their requirement from Kia?" Powered by a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 spitting out 365 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque, the GT can be had in either rear- or all-wheel drive. Kia claims a 0-62 mph time of 5.1 seconds. The base engine is a respectable 2.0-liter four with 255 hp and 260 lb-ft, but it's the latter engine Kia management will be watching very closely to help determine whether that "GTS" model is desired by customers.
"At a later stage, when the GT is more established into a stronger sub-label within Kia, then maybe at some point we need a GTR or something," Biermann added. "But for now there is nothing going on."
