Kia To Introduce RWD V8 Coupe Concepts In Frankfurt And Detroit
Share this Article

The Kia Mustang might be a reality later this year, when Kia shows off a pair of rear-wheel-drive coupe concepts in Frankfurt and Detroit. Taking the sports and muscle car fight to their respective home turfs, Kia will gauge public interest in buying a V8-powered sports car with a Korean nameplate – first at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, then a second concept at the Detroit Auto Show next January. Similar what Hyundai does with its Genesis and Genesis Coupe, Kia will branch these V8 coupes from the K9 sedan that’s been caught testing back in Korea.

If Kia can draw enough people from the Mustang and BMW camps, the production version will enter production in 2015.
