For several months we’ve discussed the upcoming Kia Stinger and what it will bring to the market in the future. As we look forward to this new sports car that will be offered from Kia, one tuning company has already taken to the task of upgrading and improving this car to give it more performance and more power for the drive you want to make on the track and on the road. The team at West Coast Customs, which was used often in the show “Pimp My Ride”, have created two impressive tuned up models of the Kia Singer for us to enjoy and admire.
Stinger GT Wide Body
The first one of these cars to be upgraded and improved is the Stinger GT Wide Body which gives us the ability to have more control on the roads and tracks than in the standard model. This car features a wide body kit, a lowered suspension, 21-inch Keen forged wheels, a lightweight carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, quad exhaust tips, blue leather seat piping, a hand-stitched gray dash panel and an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel to complete the look and feel of a car that’s closer to the ground and ready to roll.
Stinger GT Federation
Next up is the Stinger GT Federation which is the version that will signify the entrance into the aftermarket parts realm by Kia. The parts that make this car have the added performance desired included a K&N cold air intake, a low restriction Borla exhaust, Eibach springs, thicker antiroll bars, a lowered suspension, 20-inch TSW wheels that wear Falken tires. The exhaust system has already been upgraded to add 15 more horsepower for the performance desired. These parts will be available for purchase individually to create this upgraded version of the Stinger GT.
Kia gave the team at West Coast Customs one more car to upgraded and improve for the added performance we can enjoy. The Kia Cadenza Obsidian model shows up with a lowered suspension, stiffened springs, 20-inch gloss black Keen wheels that offer copper trim, copper exterior trim items, hand-stitched suede dashboard, brown leather seats with suede inserts, suede door panels, and a 630-watt Harman/Kardon audio system to offer you more comfort and sport when you want to drive and the impressive quality that represents what the Cadenza can be for the drive you’re looking for.
Any of these three models can be a lot of fun to drive and all three made their way to the SEMA Show last week to give us a look at what this partnership has created. These specialty Kia models can certainly get us excited about what this brand can offer and how the new Stinger can be tuned up and offered with more qualities for the drive. While not quite as over the top as some of the creations we saw on the “Pimp My Ride” show, these three models can help us have more of what we want from Kia, especially with one of them offered with the aftermarket parts we can order and add for the fun of the drive.
