By  | 

How about this from Kia? In one second, they took away the attention of the masses by launching the Stinger and in the next second, a more insane Stinger is reported to be in development – with the aim of beating the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

The latter is about to welcome a new generation model next year and the rumors are indicating that Kia wants to compete with the vehicle on equal footing.

The word is that Kia will be creating a more insane version of the Stinger GT and it will see the vehicle adopting a V8 engine. The V8 will be a 5L unit that is sourced from Genesis and it will be tuned for at least 600hp.

Such an output is huge for a car from South Korea and we can be sure it can make an attempt at challenging the Ford Mustang GT500. The question is will the V8-powered Stinger come true?
