    Ashton Kutcher racing his new red Stinger GT against a BMW M3 down in South America!

    That was February 2018, his channel shows he's now sporting a fuller beard. Kutcher look gone. lol

    Official KIA Stinger Time Slip Thread

    Your Density Altitude was 1,870 feet. Not bad, but not great. With those mods and with better air, mid 12's are possible.

    Stinger nose is less "boy racer", more refined.👍

    You'd hope they'd used premium! Edmunds did test of a Stinger GT, using Launch Control they improved their times by 2/10 second: G70 looks nice, but I think the Stinger is definitely sportier. Enjoy your car.(y)

    Lost to a Black Challenger GT today...

    Interesting point about height, so I checked some models: HEIGHT KIA Stinger GT: 55.1 in Maserati Ghibli: 57.5 in. Dodge Challenger R/T: 57.5 in Ford Mustang GT: 54.3 in Chevrolet Camaro SS: 53.1 in For me, I used to drive Mustangs because I liked the upright seating position as...

    Kia Stinger vs Camaro SS

    Yup, a bone stock LS1 Z28 was a solid high 13 second car. Car and Driver tested a '99 model ("Camaro vs. Mustang Again" Feb. 99) and the Z ran a 13.8@104 mph vs. the Stang's 14.2@98 mph.

    Challenger GT has a 303 hp V6, a high 14 sec car and not a competitor for the Stinger GT. Even the 375 hp R/T isn't a match for the Stinger GT unless it's modded. Now the Scat Pack, SRT-8, etc. with the 485 hp engine, that's a different story ....

    Kia Stinger vs Camaro SS

    Stock for Stock/Mod for Mod, Camaro's weren't a challenge for my Stangs until the introduction of the LT1. Then things became interesting, and with the advent of the LS1 Ford played catch up until 2011 when the Coyote entered the game.

    Kia Stinger vs Camaro SS

    Yup, 2.73's were standard and 3.08's were optional. All of the new Fox body's I owned came with 2.73's. lol Great vid. My cars were making no where near the hp that it seems those Stangs were putting out. But my method for consistent traction was using autoX tires (soft compund/shaved), 3.55...

    Kia Stinger vs Camaro SS

    I've owned/raced 9 moderately modified V8 Mustangs, most of them Fox body's. Getting power to the ground in a modified RWD street car like the '88 which weighs 3,180 lbs is difficult at best (worse if it's been lightened). It can be accomplished, but at a cost since handling (suspension...

    Kia Stinger vs Camaro SS

    Not so much a factory freak than the Stinger GT begins making max torque at 1,300 rpm and that Camaro SS's and other high power RWD cars usually can't get the power down.

    New owner in East TN - '20 Snow White Pearl GT2 AWD Stinger - Wow!!

    Go apples to apples and mod the Stinger GT, it will have no problem taking the SS from a roll!

    Also, I sat in a Stinger with the sunroof and it was too close for comfort as it regards headroom. So for me, the base model GT was the way to go.(y)

    As far as I'm concerned, you made the right decision.

    Motor Trend: "Kia Stinger GT vs. Genesis G70 3.3T: Is Luxury Worth It?"

    Exactly, I think the GT looks much sleeker, sportier. And for some reason, MT turns a 13.6 sec@104.8 mph with the AWD GT while C&D reports 13.2 sec@108 mph with the same car. Four tenths and 3+ mph is a substantial difference. Didn't use launch control? 87 octane fuel?
