Carmakers in South Korea could be taking another huge leap forward due to Kia and Hyundai both getting ready to reveal high performance cars for the first time. Kia is going to launch the GT later on this year.
The Kia GT is going to have the base of a concept that was seen back in 2011 and when it arrives it will be the most powerful creation that they have ever come up with. It is going to offer up the 2.5 litre turbocharged engine and this should give up about 380 horses.
The GT isn’t going to be a pure hatchback and there are many people who hope that the vehicle is going to take on the Ford Focus RS new version. This comes with a 2.3 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder EcoBoost engine and it should give up 350 horses.
The Kia GT does sound as though it could be a winner on paper at least, but we would just love to see it going up against the new Ford Focus RS out on the track.
