The Kia GT Monster at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011

 

The manner in which the Korean brands have thought of taking over the European market is standing at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011 right now and it is named Kia GT.

Although a concept, this jewelery designed by Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume might end up being hotter than many actual models. Behind this gorgeous coupe lies  a 3.3-litre direct injection, turbo V6 combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The result is stunning:  390 bhp and 394 lb ft to the rear wheels.

Apparently the producers managed to create exactly what they planned: ” We wanted to create something similarly graceful, athletic and confident, but not aggressive or overbearing.”
