Kia is very confident that the Stinger will prove to be a rival to the very best from Europe and put the South Korean company on the map as a legitimate manufacturer of high-end, luxury automobiles.
What better way to show this than displaying just how capable the Stinger is at doing remarkable drifts and donuts?
That’s exactly what Kia did at a recent event for the rear-wheel drive sports saloon, taking a perfectly good car and destroying its rear tires with prolonged torture, much to the pleasure and thrill of onlookers.
Now, doing donuts is far from a legitimate way to determine how good a car is, and Kia still has to prove to the world that its offering is capable of providing driving thrills to match or exceed its more expensive rivals, something that is a very tall order indeed.
For now, we know that the range-topping model will have a twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 delivering 265 hp and 376 lb-ft (494 Nm) of torque, allowing the sports sedan to hit 100 km/h in a very-respectable 4.9 seconds.
