    Sky guy Tasmania has some of the best empty touring roads in the country and they will be perfect for my stinger plus hardly any speeding cameras so you stick to the big smoke mate and stinger Steve I live 45 minutes from cradle

    Hey guys, I got one too (found it in Junk email)
    Here it is.

    Welcome to the first Kia Stinger update. Thank you for registering your interest. Not only will you be one of the first to test drive, but you'll also be first in the know when it comes to the All New Stinger.

    Kia took the world by storm when it unveiled its incredible new Stinger at the Detroit Motor Show in January this year. These newsletters will keep you informed until you have the chance to experience the Stinger when it arrives here in late August.



    [​IMG]

    Designed in Europe by Kia's world-renowned Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, this stylish and beautiful design demonstrates the true gran turismo ethos - fast, nimble and luxurious with a perfect balance of ride and handling.

    From dream to reality, the Kia Stinger is 7 years in the making. From the original concept revealed 6 years ago, to today's production vehicle, the Stinger has been a labour of passion, perseverance and patience.

    The Kia Stinger will be backed by Australia's best 7 year factory warranty, 7 year capped price servicing and have up to 7 years of Roadside Assistance. Tested on the Nurburgring, tuned in Australia - the Kia Stinger is made for you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With its low profile fastback silhouette, this seductive sports sedan exudes confidence and athleticism. Measuring 4,830mm in length, 1,870mm in width and riding on a wheelbase of 2,905mm, the classic GT proportions create our very own iconic car.


    [​IMG]

    Its sleek and sophisticated design features your own aircraft style, cocoon-like interior. Exquisitely crafted details include satin chrome accent lines along the dash, whilst the aircraft inspired metal-ringed dials as well as the floating door grab handles and premium sport seating cosset you for a pure driving experience.


    The all new Kia Stinger is the beginning of a new chapter. Join us on our journey and for our next instalment - Performance.


    Regards
    Kia Motors Australia

    Although we've put a deposit this email was received because I've registered my interest on the KIA Australia website.
    If you have as well, maybe you can register again.
    Agreed though, it's definitely getting real.

    Cheers. I did manage to find this email in my SPAM folder also. Did not realise when searching emails (gmail) that the spam folder is actually excluded unless you specifically search in that folder.

    2nd Newsletter recevied. Nothing new in it ... but it is progress.

    When it comes to performance, the All-New Stinger is something very special.
    [​IMG]

    The Kia Stinger's dynamics were developed by Albert Biermann, Head of High Performance Development at Kia Motors. As the former Vice President of BMW's M Division, Mr. Biermann was responsible for tuning some of BMW's most iconic cars. Today, Biermann has spearheaded the Stinger's chassis and performance development at various proving grounds, including Germany's Nurburgring and Sweden's Arjeplog. Watch the Stinger perform at sub-zero temperatures in the Swedish Laplands, above.

    Locally, we've tuned for our harsh roads and conditions utilising the skills of Graeme Gambold to suit local driving habits. The Stinger also represents Kia's first delivery of a rear wheel drive vehicle for the Australian market and we are sure that it is one that will surprise.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Two engines have been engineered to provide maximum enjoyment. Choose between a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine generating 182kW of power, or the 3.3 litre twin-turbocharged V6. This impressive 3.3 litre engine will produce 272kW of power, making the sprint from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.


    [​IMG]

    An in house eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is mated to both the 2.0 litre and 3.3 litre engines. To complement this, choose from five electronically controlled drive modes (Custom, Eco, Comfort, Sport and Smart) that take Stinger from mild to wild, controlling steering torque delivery, transmission shift points and, for the GT/GT-Line variants, the calibration of the electronically controlled suspension.


    Look out for our next email as we detail more of this astonishing new vehicle.


    Kind Regards
    Kia Motors Australia

    On its global debut, the Kia Stinger turned the heads of international award judges.
    It was named winner of this year's Eyes On Design Award for Production Car Excellence at the Detroit Motor Show. The surprising new Gran Turismo also created a buzz at the Geneva Motor Show.
    [​IMG]
    Selected by active and acclaimed professionals in the field of automotive design, the Eyes On Design Award honours the best production and concept vehicles making their worldwide debut. But it's not just the judges at the Detroit Motor Show who have great things to say about the Stinger.

    Australian auto journalists, Alborz Fallah from CarAdvice.com.au and Bruce Newton from Motoring.com.au took the Stinger for a lap around Germany's legendary 'Green Hell' - the Nurburgring. Click on the quotes below to read their full review.

    In recent news, Peter Schreyer - Kia's President and Chief Design Officer - won Autocar's prestigious Sturmey Award. This award recognises design innovation. Peter Schreyer was also the designer behind the Stinger.

    With the newly unveiled car already receiving such positive accolades, we are excited to be welcoming the newest addition to the Kia family soon.
