Kia gets green signal for the production of 2011 GT concept
|   Friday, November 07, 2014
Kia's GT concept has got the green signal for production and would hit showrooms in late 2016. Kia has confirmed the arrival of this high-end GT to develop a sporting image for Kia at the recent Paris Motor Show.

The production of Kia's Fastback GT would be joined by a cheaper coupe version of GT4v Stinger concept, which was revealed at this year's Detroit Auto Show. Paul Philpott, Boss for Kia UK, stated that he would have liked a two-seat GT sports to compete with Mazda MX-5, but the global market would not allow him execute his plans for now.


The GT, in concept form, was powered a 3.3 litre V6 turbo petrol engine with 390 bhp and mated with an 8-speed automatic gear box. It is still unsure whether the production model would have the same engine lineup or not. However, European buyers would be offered a diesel version of company's 2.2 litre four-cylinder engine.
