The upcoming SEMA event will bring an external combustion of custom vehicles, but the event will also greet us with other goodies, such as motorsport-destined vehicles, with the latest example of such a car being Kia’s B-Spec Rio.
The vehicle was developed by Kinetic Motorsports and comes with the usual racing safety equipment, such as a roll cage, a fire extinguisher and others.

The car is eligible for competitions like GRAND-AM, World Challenge, SportsCar Club of America (SCCA) or National Auto Sport Association (NASA). It will come with a racing suspension and modified brakes, while its 1.6-liter engine, which delivers 140 hp in the street-destined version, will also be modified.

We’ll be back with more detailed info once the vehicle makes its debut at SEMA.
