DETROIT -- Today, Kia unveiled the brand's most aggressive concept, the GT4 Stinger, at the North American International Auto Show. I thought it was eye-catching and sporty. This concept pushes the limits of performance.

As you notice, the front grille rests mere inches from the ground. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine pumps out 315 horsepower to the rear wheels. This rear-wheel drive sports coupe boasts a glimpse into the future of KIA.

I spoke with Kia Senior Designer Brian White and he hopes they put this car into production as soon as possible.

"It's a small sports car that's fun to drive. However, it is a back-to-basics car with manual transmission. The main purpose is for driving enjoyment. The interior is sparse with the center gauge being a tachometer and not much else. We are recreating a race car look on the inside. The door pulls are straps, as you can see," says White.

There are no fuel economy numbers on this vehicle as of yet. The price range will be in the mid 20's.
