Kia has released a teaser sketch of the Kia Pro_cee'd GT, a high performance variant of the 2013 Pro_cee'd hatchback which will arrive in European showrooms in the second half of 2013.

Although the illustration shows a coupe body style, five-door hatchback and estate versions are reported to be in kia’s pipeline as well. The Pro_cee’d made its world debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

The Pro_cee'd GT will be powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission. The forced-fed lump is rumoured to generate as much as 200bhp. Given that the US-market Hyundai Veloster Turbo is already producing 201bhp, this should not come as a surprise.

The teaser image of the Pro_cee'd GT shows a low-slung profile with an aggressive front bumper. The oversized wheels is expected be toned down in the production version. The Pro_ceed’d itself is already a handsome looking hatch. The GT version should be outstanding and further strengthen Kia’s image in the European market.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
