Each passing day, the Kia GT Concept in production form is closer than ever. Today company’s vice president of overseas marketing Soon Nam-Lee confirmed the model is starting under development.

Speaking to our friends from CarAdvice Australia at Kia Motors Corporation headquarters in Seoul, South Korea, Kia’s vice president of overseas marketing, Soon-Nam Lee, acknowledged the company’s research and development division has been given the development task already.

“On the marketing side we’ve requested to develop the GT concept to our R&D center; we are discussing at this moment.” Lee said.

“For the 2018 Kia Vision, we need to consolidate our luxury image in the US market. The GT concept will be very important role for the Kia vision.” he added. 

Lee declined to talk about specification list, but said the company this need to consolidate their premium image in the U.S-market. The biggest issue now? Kia currently not having the required drivetrain to make the its GT a reality, that’s why the R&D Center is working and performing the development of the 3.3 Turbo GDi and V6 engine.

“To achieve and realise the GT we need a more powerful engine so we are discussing with R&D side,” said Lee.
