Second image of KIA’s Sports Coupe released
to be shown at the Frankfurt Auto Show
Kia Motors Corporation has released a
second ‘preview image’ of the concept car it will unveil for the
first time at the Frankfurt International Motor Show on 11
September. Shown in profile, the svelte Sports Coupe Concept
reveals classic lines coupled with a lengthened cabin design
that can accommodate four adults in comfort.
Designed in Europe, under the guidance of Kia’s
Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, the all-new 2+2 Sports Coupe
Concept, whose name remains a secret at present, will demonstrate an
uncluttered, pure and timeless execution and represents a new design
ethos for the Korean automotive company.
“The new Sports Coupe Concept is a clear and
emphatic statement that the future of the Kia brand is set to be one
that will excite and surprise an entirely new audience of consumers,”
commented Peter Schreyer. “In making this design departure for Kia it
was essential to my thinking that we did not lose sight of the fact that
the Kia brand must continue to appeal to customers in the mainstream. It
would have been easy to present an extreme supercar at Frankfurt that
would attract plenty of attention, but could have no place in Kia’s
future. Our Sports Coupe Concept is not simply a flight of fancy.
