The Kia Stinger GT is a fine, mean looking machine. And if that’s not enough to win you over, perhaps the fact that obliterates the century sprint in 4.9 seconds will. Oh, did you also know that Kia Malaysia has all the intentions of bringing this in?
Back at its world debut, Kia Motors did not reveal the actual sprint time of their meanest model to date. Powered by a 3.3-litre twin turbo V6 petrol engine, this rear wheel drive grand tourer is the most powerful and fastest car Kia has ever produced.
The V6 lump packs 365 hp at 6,000 rpm and 510 Nm of torque from 1,300 to 4,500 rpm. There is also an all-wheel drive Stinger GT, but the sprint time for that variant has yet to be released. This puts the Kia Stinger GT directly in the same category as the BMW 440i, who by the way, is a tad slower to the 100 km/h mark at 5.0 seconds. Meanwhile, the Audi S5 does that in 4.7 seconds.
Right. We did in fact say that Kia Malaysia is planning to bring this in. But remember, there are two variants, with the base Stinger getting a 2.0-litre four-pot turbo. That ought to be enough to get most of us excited anyway.
