Long long ago, Kia launched an incredible Sportscoupe Concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Designed by Peter Schreyer, the GT created a big hype between Kia fans as well as media. Finally and thanks to our friends from MotorGraph today we can share the first pictures (under camouflage) of the production version of Kia GT (codenamed as CK).
This is Kia’s first attempt for a sports car (besides Kia Elan) and it seems that a lot of people and Kia enthusiast will like this design. This model, as we said before, has a lot of similarities from the concept model Kia GT, for one we can see the fastback similar to the Audi A5 and A7 that some might find this very attractive, as I do too, and also keeping the 4 door option with almost identical C pillar from the GT concept. It looks like the rear passengers will have some headroom but we’ll find out that later with more pictures.
4 things that shines a lot is the exhaust tips, Kia decided to give it a quad exhaust tips which it looks very sporty, also there is new wheel design with multiple spokes that flows nicely with the car. Another shiny thing on the exterior is the chrome vent on the lower side of the fender that seems to continue to the driver’s door and also on the from the long hood for this car.
Unfortunately we can see the front end of the car, which might look similar to the GT too. Another thing is the interior, we can’t tell what it looks like but we can expect something new from luxury and sport feel.
Now let’s brainstorm a little here, it seems like the engine bay will have enough room for a big engine and we doubt Kia decided to use a quad exhaust tip for just the 1.6 turbo engine. Our guess is we’ll see a bigger engine here, more like towards 2.0 Turbo engine, and while we are at the turbo engines sure why not the 3.3 Twin Turbo engine, if Kia decides to include this engine for sure it will raise a lot of car enthusiast interest.
So this will leave us with a lot of questions for you guys. How many of you would like a “fastback” Kia? Which engine do you think Kia will use and which one you hope they use? And last, would you consider buying this model? Let’s us know in the comments below.
