If you recall over the last few years Kia has scored more than a few corporate staffing coups most notably may be former Audi design chief Peter Schreyer, With all of this new talent guiding the automaker, Kia style and design is rapidily moving to the forefront of the industry.

  No longer are they trailing the industry, but in many ways right on the cutting edge.

Take a look at the press release below:

The Kia faithful will immediately notice the latest iteration of the signature grille resting mere inches from the ground. The surround glows white and is flanked by vertical LED headlamps.

Front-brake cooling vents funnel air around custom 20-inch wheels. A carbon fiber front splitter mounted below the bumper provides added downforce for the car and keeps the GT4 Stinger's front tires firmly planted to the tarmac.

Under the hood you ask? A turbocharged 2.0-liter that pumps 315 horsepower to the rear wheels.

More to come. Stay tuned.


Now is you look at the teaser shot you can immediately see a hint of Audi in the design. Possibly the R8?  Just when you think you have the Koreans nailed down they go and do something like this!
