    Kia stunned the world when it pulled the wraps off of the Stinger at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show. It is the company's first true performance car; a four-door sports sedan developed under the watchful eye of ex-BMW M specialist Albert Biermann.

    Internationally, Kia offers a total of three engine options with the Stinger, but the one that'll be at the Autocar Performance Show 2018 is the highlight of the range – the GT, with a 3.3-litre, twin-turbocharged petrol engine that puts out 365hp and 510Nm of torque. Claimed 0-96kph time for the Stinger GT is pegged at 4.7 seconds, and it has a top speed of 270kph.

    Being Kia's halo car, the Stinger is absolutely packed to the gills with kit. In high-performance GT guise, the Stinger gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 15-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a 360-degree view camera, a head-up display, power-adjustable front seats with ventilation and Nappa leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a powered tailgate and a full suite of safety systems. It even gets Brembo brakes, electronically controlled suspension and a limited-slip differential to go with its sports sedan aspirations.
