CAPE TOWN: The Stinger will come with a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and a five-year/90 000km maintenance plan.

Following an announcement from Kia that their new Stinger will be coming to SA in August, but in limited numbers, the Korean manufacturer has come forward with the official price.

According to Kia Motors SA, we are only getting the Stinger GT, which will carry a competitive price tag of R859 995.

Interestingly, the Stinger GT will not be available through the Kia dealership network, but instead offered solely through a dedicated Stinger website.

Power of the Stinger comes from a twin-turbo 3,3-litre V6 petrol engine.

The engine sends 272 kW and 510 N.m to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission (with paddle-shifters).

All that amount of power enables the Stinger to dash from o-100km/h in 4.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 270km/h.

If you like, you can choose nine metallic colours: Hi Chroma Red, Snow White Pearl, Silky Silver, Aurora Black Pearl, Ceramic Silver, Sunset Yellow, Deep Chroma Blue, Micro Blue and Panthera Metal.

The Stinger will come with a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and a five-year/90 000km maintenance plan.
