DETROIT, Michigan - Kia has released a second image teaser of its new GT4 Stinger due to be revealed at the Detroit auto show on January 14 - and it's looking even better.

The first was shown back on January 3 2014.

Beneath the low wedge of the sculpted bonnet resides a tuned version of Kia’s proven two-litre turbocharged petrol direct injection (T-GDI) four-cylinder engine pumping out an impressive 235kW.


A close-ratio six-speed manual transmission directs power to the rear wheels where 275/35R20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tyres meet the asphalt.  Custom 20" aluminium centre-lock wheels feature carbon-fibre inserts for strength and weight reduction.

Tucked inside the huge wheels and bringing the GT4 to a halt are Brembo Gran Tourismo two-piece cross-drilled rotors with four-piston callipers. And underpinning the GT4 Stinger’s ‘Ignition Yellow’ body is a custom chassis with an independent double-wishbone suspension.
