What you are seeing above is what the guys at Autoexpress.co.uk invision for what Kia has been working for some time now, The GT coupe or should we call it CK?
The Kia GT made a revolution to their new concept models, this was the first rear-wheel drive concept made by Kia, the style and sleekness design made many car enthusiat excited and looking forward what Kia will be working on the future.
Originally this concept powertrain had the 3.3L turbocharged producing 395 HP and 393.5 lb-ft of torque married to an eight-speed Automatic Transmission. Those were very reasonable numbers, and of course this was rear-wheel drive
Fast-forwarding to 2016 Kia we have heard so mant leaks and hints from Kia executives that this model will do hit production based on this concept model but it was never giving an exact date. Now we are finally hearing a year which is gives us the hope some people were wainting for.
When it comes to powertrain we might see the appearance of the 3.3L V6 engine but apparently it will not be the twin-turbo charge version and its also said the we might find the 5.0L V8 engine. And for those diesel engine fans, we might see the 2.2L engine for those europeans and probably a hybrid version too to follow the new trend.
Could this be in fact the Kia CK been tested on the Hyundai Genesis mule? The GT will debut in 2017 and we might see it at the Detroit Motor Show hitting show rooms later in the year.
