Once in a while, odd drag racing pairings carry fascinating surprises, as was the case with an unassuming Honda Accord that delivered a remarkably shut quarter-mile lesson to a Dodge Challenger. This darkish Kia Stinger GT isn’t in that posture but, nevertheless it’s racking up factors for being a really perseverant scholar.
We actually can’t make sure due to the evening setup and the grainy footage from the Drag Racing and Automotive Stuff movies, however this Korean midsize liftback sports activities sedan positive appears quite a bit just like the Kia Stinger GT we’ve already seen duke it out in a few separate events with a Volvo XC40 Recharge EV, Porsche Macan, after which a Dodge Challenger T/A, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, and a Chevrolet SS.

Lots of the encounters resulted in very shut defeats for the Kia Stinger GT (save for the GT500 run, which naturally introduced an enormous hole for the Blue Oval), whereas different skirmishes additionally led to good outcomes for the odd sedan, with the driving force managing low 12-second runs.

This in all probability gave the driving force confidence to hone additional one’s expertise (particularly since we’ve seen there’s want for extra expertise to ship extra fixed outcomes), so the most recent video pits the Kia Stinger GT towards one other eclectic roster. Once more, we’ve no method of realizing if that is certainly the identical automobile seen in all three movies embedded under, nevertheless it appears prefer it.

If something, we’re starting to develop keen on the best way this Stinger GT returns to the enjoying subject with renewed tenacity, regardless that lots of the encounters finish in defeat. Truly, each single run seen right here sees the opposite automobile come up on high, if generally by a hair.

First up on the lot with the Stinger GT – which is alleged to sport consumption and exhaust upgrades within the description – is the C6 Chevy Corvette. As a result of we’re truly coping with a ProCharged ‘Vette, the result’s plainly apparent from the massive hole. In any case, that was a ten.32s run towards a 12.93s outcome.

The upcoming races are far more balanced, because the Stinger GT skirmishes towards a European foe (allegedly, a BMW M235i) and a few representatives from the Dodge secure – each the Charger and Challenger present as much as exert quarter-mile supremacy.
