For the last two weeks, Kia has been releasing very limited bits and bytes to the market on what this new Kia is all about - suggesting that it is likely to be one ‘bad’ machine.

This week’s tease, released today, gives us a top view glimpse of the GT4 Stinger in ‘Ignition Yellow’ and adding a little bit more detail.

Using Kia’s words and interpreting the photos - from last week we see a latest iteration of the signature grille resting just inches from the ground with a glowing white surround flanked by vertical LED headlamps.

Also in the photo from last week, we see front-brake cooling vents that are said to funnel air around custom 20-inch wheels while a carbon fiber front splitter mounted below the bumper provides down force to keep the GT4 Stinger’s front tires firmly planted to the pavement.

Underneath a wedge-like sculpted hood, Kia tells us, is a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline direct injected (T-GDI) four-cylinder engine that cranks out 315 horsepower.

The 315 horses are delivered through a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels where 275/35R20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tires mounted to put the torque firmly on the road.

At the front are staggered 235/35R20 Pirelli P-Zeros tucked beneath the front fenders. The custom 20-inch aluminum center-lock wheels feature carbon fiber inserts for strength and weight reduction.

If the GT4 goes fast, it also needs to stop fast - so tucked inside the massive wheels are Brembo Gran Tourismo two-piece cross-drilled rotors with four-piston calipers to make the stop as effortlessly as it accelerates.

Kia completes this latest tease by telling us that underneath the GT4 Stinger is a custom chassis with an independent double wishbone suspension to put all of the GT4 power into optimal balance.

With that, and only couple of pictures in hand, Kia says we need to wait until the reveal next week in Detroit to see just how bad this baby really is.
