There are many crazy, outrageous marvelous, stupendous and outlandish aftermarket creations bound for SEMA – but the official presence of worldwide automakers is also massive.
Kia has decided to join the action – just like its brother Hyundai – with a unique creation based on the recent Stinger high-performance sedan. Together with West Coast Customs, the brand is ready to showcase at SEMA in Las Vegas a wide-body version of the sports sedan. There are obvious conceptualization elements – flared fenders and aggressive new diffuser, along with easy to use on the production version elements: gloss black front grill, a carbon fiber aero kit, 21-inch forged wheels, and squared exhaust tips, just to name a few.
The interior is also gaining new elements – most like in tune with the changes on the outside, but Kia has decided to paly mysterious for now. It’s also unknown if the West Coast Customs Stinger will also gain mechanical upgrades. The regular US Stinger packs either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 255 horsepower (190 kilowatts), or the group’s new 3.3-liter biturbocharged V6 good for 365 hp (272 kW). Hyundai on its part is showcasing a bright-orange tuned Elantra Sport, the efficient HyperEconiq Ioniq concept, and an off-road ready Santa Fe Sport.
