After learning that the all-new Kia Stinger has a pretty impressive engine, it shouldn't be particularly surprising that it has a great ride feel, and some pretty impressive acceleration.

But, even we can admit that Kia probably isn't the first brand that comes to mind when you think of "sports car". So, you may be doubting that the 2018 Kia Stinger GT 0-60 time will blow you away.

You may be pleasantly surprised.

All 2018 Kia Stinger GT, GT1, and GT2 models come standard with Kia's brand-new 3.3-liter Twin Turbo V6 GDI engine, good for 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque, as claimed by Kia.

That power means the 2018 Kia Stinger GT line is good for a 0-60 time of as little as 4.4 seconds as tested by Road & Track--and that is definitely sports car territory. Off-the-line acceleration is said by R & T to be optimized with RWD and Launch Control.

Models like the Audi S5 Sportback run a faster 0-60 time (of 4.3 seconds) but will also run you about $55,000 to the 2018 Kia Stinger GT's $38,350 price tag, as priced by Kia.

Ready to pay $16,650 for a mere 0.1 seconds of sprint time?

Didn't think so.

By now, it's pretty clear that the 2018 Kia Stinger GT is the kind of car you need to experience to believe.
