Kia GT4 Stinger Concept Photos Leaked

Every time guys, every time – every time there's a new car coming out, automakers intentionally leak a few photos, just so they can get extra coverage. Whatever, we'll have a taste of what Kia is cooking, but only because it's cool.

Looking like a cross between 70s American coupe with the headlights of a Le Mans prototype, the Kia GT4 has appeared online today. This is our fist chance to take a look at the car before it makes its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show later today.

Looking more like Chip Foose's creation than a brother of the Kia Optima, this is likely a design study from California. A new Tiger Nose grille has been added, similar to the one on the K900, but with a floating design. This is flanked by simple and large LED headlights. One of the most interesting design features on the car is the A-pillar, which is see-through thanks to small windows.

The engine Kia claims is powering this car strikes us as very interesting. Bucking the trend for hybridization, it's a 4-cylinder turbo T-GDi with 315-hp (235 kW) and sent to the back wheels. It makes us wonder if this concept isn't based on Hyundai's similarly powered Genesis Coupe.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
