Kia has decided to produce the GT concept as a production model. It's benchmark? The Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera apparently. This decision follows from the release of the luxurious Kia K900 (which unfortunately did not sell very well at all.) That car was meant to battle the BMW 7-series.
This vehicle is aimed at the US market. It will also be sold in Europe with a diesel engine. It is expected to be powered by a turbocharged 3.3-liter V6 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It could also get the V8 that is in the K900, which would make it a true speed demon.
