    The Korean micro site for the Stinger

    Checked the Korean website and the Stinger is listed as coming in May. My Korean sales guy also mentioned it would be on sale in May there, as well as saying the have president thousands of them already. Pricing here should be $35 - $55K. He mentioned a 400 hp version to compete with the M5 but I'm thinking that might not be correct, at least not at launch.

    The Koreans gets their hands on things first then we get it a year later so who know if they will do that if it sells well and there is a demand and folks willing to pay the price. Anyhow, here is the Korean microsite:

    KIA STINGER

    That emblem the are touting might be their idea for a luxury brand or they could drop in a few of these cars and like Hyundai spin it off later.

    The Korean micro site for the Stinger

    Yeah, the Korean version has a higher ride height, their roads are pretty good, so not sure why. You might also notice their version will wear the double E emblem instead of the KIA logo. What do you guys think of that logo? I think if they produce the Novo concept with the same attention to detail and performance levels, while updating the K900 similarly, that would give them a good start in spinning off a luxury brand.

    KIA has also filed a trademark application for the logo in Europe, I'm guessing there might be applications in other parts of the world as well. With all the talk of having a better logo on KIA vehicles, how many forum members would prefer to have the logo on their Stinger or Optima for that matter?
