AutoComplete: Kia Stinger proves even quicker than we thought
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
When the Stinger was first unveiled, Kia said it carried a 0 to 62 time of just over 5 seconds.
That's plenty rapid, but now Kia says it's actually quicker.
The top end 365 horsepower twin turbo V6 model will do the deed in just 4.9 seconds.
That's quicker than BMW's 440i Grand Coupe but not as rapid as the Mercedes MGC 43 or Audi S4.
Still that's very good company especially considering this is KIA's first true sports sedan and it will likely be a lot cheaper than those Europeans.
Mercedes has some new EV's on the way and their set to arrive sooner than we thought.
Originally, Mercedes planned to introduce ten new electric models by 2025 But that date has apparently been pulled forward to 2022.
The first model in Benz' electric onslaught will be based on the Generation EQ concept, which is sized about the same as today's GLC-class crossover.
With BMW and Volkswagen holding to similar targets, the next five years should be very interesting.
Missed the chance to buy a new Jag E-Type in the 1960s?
Well, you can get one in 2017, but it's going to cost you.
Jaguar plans to source and rebuild ten E Types to factory fresh specs using a wealth of documentation and classic parts.
Buyers can add improvements like better brakes or more powerful cooling system, but they'll have to pay to play.
Starting price for an E Type Reborn, a cool $360 thousand.
