Drive Wire: Spy Shots of the New Kia GT Sports Sedan
We have spy shots of the new Kia GT sports sedan testing in southern California, and despite the car being wrapped in an anti-spy parka, we like what we see. Appearing to be heavily based on the GT4 Stinger concept from the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, it seems to have kept the sleek Kammback design and the dramatic front fender flare-vents. Rumor has it the top-line model could be getting power from Kia’s turbo V6 driving an 8-speed automatic transmission, which would have it competing with the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS, but at a price point of about $40,000. We expect to see a more finished version as early as this year’s Paris Auto Show.
