New Kia Stinger at the 2017 SEMA Show

The 2018 Kia Stinger is rolling off the line and bears a resemblance to high-end sports cars well above its price point. As it turns out, aggressive styling isn’t enough for the 2017 SEMA Show. That’s why the new Kia Stinger featured a unique look, just for the audience at Las Vegas.New Kia Stinger

Kia and West Coast Customs teamed up to create a unique Stinger sports car that no attendee could ignore. The all-new fastback sedan boasted numerous enhancements on top of its already aggressive styling.

For starters, the SEMA Stinger GT rolled out on a lower front and rear suspension. A gloss black front grille and 21-inch forged wheels add a touch of athleticism unmatched by most performance cars, while widebody fender flares, a carbon fiber aero kit, and rear diffuser create the track-ready look that enthusiasts love. To top it all off, squared-off quad exhaust tips add the intimidation factor.

The interior featured quite a few performance-driven upgrades as well. That’s on top of the premium interior which already features standard leather upholstery.

The modified Kia Stinger GT debuted alongside two other customized Kia models on Tuesday, October 31st.

We here at Gossett Kia South can’t help but be amazed at the custom Stinger sports car!

Kia A1A Concept Appears at SEMA

As the temperatures get cooler and cooler and fall starts turning into winter, Kia has something that will make you feel like you’re catching a warm summertime breeze: the Kia A1A Concept.

This built-for-summer concept was designed for the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. It is based on an Optima sedan, but looks like nothing you would see on a showroom floor, which is exactly what SEMA is all about.

For starters, this Optima has had its roof cut off, making it a beautiful open-air convertible. Next, the spectacular blue color makes you think of the pristine blue ocean you would see driving along the A1A coastal highway in Florida, which is what this concept is named after. And, for the final touches, this concept has a trimmed windshield, rear suicide doors, 20-inch chrome wheels, and reinforced steel tubing throughout to compensate for the missing roof.

Can you imagine your next beach-going adventure driving behind the wheel of this beautiful car? How much would you love to see a production version of a Kia convertible?
