Frankfurt, 4 March 2013 – Kia is celebrating the arrival of its new high-performance Kia pro_cee’d GT model with a limited edition variant that features a host of unique interior and exterior styling enhancements. With a production run of just 500 units and available to order from 1 April, the ‘Kia pro_cee’d GT 1st edition’ is based closely on the all-new Kia pro_cee’d GT which makes its global debut at the 83rd Salon International de l’Automobile in Geneva.
Every Kia pro_cee’d GT 1st edition is finished in Tri-coat White and comes equipped with a solid red garnish below the front air-intake, 18-inch alloy wheels featuring black high-gloss spokes, jewel-like four-point LED daytime running lights, black high-gloss door mirror housings, stainless steel scuff plates with red illuminated GT badging and unique numbering, red cabin-footwell lighting and premium-quality velour floor mats with red double stitching.
Like other Kia pro_cee’d GT models, the 1st edition is powered by a new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI gasoline engine producing 204 ps and 265 Nm. Fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox, the GT models can accelerate to 100 kph in 7.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 230 kph.
Standard equipment, also available on top-spec regular pro_cee’d models, includes Bi-Xenon headlamps, automatic climate control air-conditioning and a panoramic glass sunroof.
