The first is a one-of-a-kind project by West Coast Customs of Burbank, California, inspired by the racing GT cars of the 1970s, with huge wheel-arch flares creating a distinctly narrow-waisted profile, while a carbon-fibre aero kit and rear diffuser, and quad tailpipes, add a touch of 21st-century bling.
Outside the SEMA Show, Kia is also offering attendees the chance to ride in Stinger GTs with professional Formula Drift drivers on a specially designed course, where they slide around corners at speeds of nearly 50 mph. There’s also the opportunity to get behind the wheel and navigate a complex autocross course.
In addition to the ride-alongs, folks at the show will also have the chance to take the Stinger GT out on an autocross course themselves to see if they are as impressed as Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder was with its handling and performance.
With its lowered suspension, stiffened springs, and custom 20-inch wheels with Cosmic Copper trim, the entire body features metallic black paint with ultra-dark ceramic window tint. A hand-stitched suede dashboard, brown leather seats, and a Harmon-Kardon 630-watt sound system complete the work.
