It looks like Malaysia will be getting the Kia Stinger in GT guise, if these posts on Kia Malaysia’s official Facebook page are any indication. The company had previously teased the arrival of the sporty sedan just a few days ago, and previewed a left-hand drive example last year.

In the most recent FB post, we see engine output figures being quoted: 365 hp and 510 Nm of torque. Those numbers are what you’ll get from the Stinger GT’s 3.3 litre twin-turbo Lambda II V6 petrol engine, which will make it the most powerful Kia in Malaysia. The mill is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, although it remains to be seen if we’ll get rear- or all-wheel drive.

The Stinger GT will complete the zero to 100 km/h sprint in just 4.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 269 km/h. As a comparison, a Mercedes-AMG C 43 with its 362 hp 3.0 litre bi-turbo V6 does the same in 4.7 seconds, but is electronically limited to 250 km/h. However, the junior AMG is priced at RM386k even in CKD form, while the Kia should be considerably more affordable.

With another piece of the puzzle found, the only remaining ones involve two important details: when will it be launched and more importantly, how much?
