Korean vehicles are becoming more and more trendy, and have been ever since N models from Hyundai also have them in the Tuning scene found a lot more fans. But not only Hyundai, but also its sister brand Kia is gaining a lot of overtaking prestige, thanks to models like that Proceed GT or the Stinger. The Kia Stinger, which initially triggered a real Kia hype, but fell well short of expectations in terms of sales, has now been bought by the dealer City Kia in Orlando, Florida, to one four-door convertible rebuiltin order to cruise openly and calmly on the boulevard in summer. But that shouldn't be the only copy that cut open will, as a Small series of 12 cars is planned to be converted to a convertible. And the Kia Stinger GTC Cabriolets even have one Manufacturer warranty.
Open eye-catcher with changes!
But it's not just that Convertible Tag, which makes the Kia Stinger GTC so special and distinguishes it from its conventional brothers, but there are also various minor modificationsthat make him stand out from the series. This includes a new one Antenna, black Kia emblems, Others tailpipes as well as a modified one rear bumper. In addition, the standard rims were through forged alloy wheels replaced, and thanks to the use of shiny Carbon on the hood as well as the side rub strips, the sporting aspect of the Korean was brought to the fore again. Through the bonnet with carbon and the air intakes on it, the front is strongly reminiscent of a mix Abarth 124 Spider and a SRT Viper, over Stiffeners Unfortunately, we are not aware of the body of the convertible conversion, but this is usually necessary for such a conversion to guarantee sufficient torsional rigidity.
In addition, safety must be guaranteed in the event of a rollover with the top down, which is why the A-pillar must be stable enough to be does not buckle. Unfortunately, we don't have any precise information about the safety aspects yet, but when it comes to a small series production of 12 vehicles, then the factors must definitely be considered and have been considered. Considering the fact that it is a four-door convertible you are immediately aware of the special status of the project, as there has been no real four-door sedan carbiolet since the Lincoln Continental from 1969. We're not counting the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited among them.
Revised engine with a maximum of +500 hp planned.
The standard 3,3 liter V6 turbo gasoline engine was using a Downpipe exhaust system Slightly modified by Ultimate Performance. The engine is standard 370 PS and 510 Newtonmeter maximum torque, but thanks to the new exhaust system, a few more horsepower should jump out. The standard automatic transmission with eight speed levels is designed only up to 520 Newton meters of maximum torque, which is why it is on in the event of an increase in performance about 500 PS would have to be replaced. Even with 370 hp, the performance is already sufficient to cover a brisk stretch of the highway, but with more than 500 hp, the Kia Stinger GTC is an AMG fright.
Our conclusion on the Kia Stinger GTC:
You can see that the project is still in its infancy and we will definitely keep going as we find it impressive which ones Effort and expense City Kia of Orlando, Florida, takes it upon itself to serve very special customers special requests. Unfortunately, we don't yet know exactly what the convertible conversion will cost, but we are sure that it will not be a cheap pleasure.
