Official: Kia Pro_Cee'd GT and Cee'd GT - New images!

Two days ago you saw here the first two images of the upcoming Pro_Cee'd GT and today Kia decided to reveal a little more about "the brand’s most performance-focused production car ever", including more images, a few technical details and the confirmation of the 3 and 5 door versions.

The car was designed in Europe under the direction of President and Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, and will be manufactured at Kia’s Zilina plant in Slovakia starting from mid-May, with sales starting from June/July.

Strangely Kia has not revealed any images of the rear but confirmed the car has dual-exhaust pipes, besides the obvious larger 18 inch wheels, Recaro seats, four Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) LEDs in each side and red brake caliper.

The engine, like we reported earlier, is a new turbocharged 1.6liter GDI gasoline engine with 204hp and 265Nm (198lb/ft) connected to a manual six-speed transmission. Those figures are more than enough to accelerate the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds.

Public presentation will happen at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.
