Kia To Reveal Sports Coupe Concept Car At Frankfurt Motor Show

 

 

20th July, 2007

Kia Sports Coupe Concept Car

Kia Motors Corporation has confirmed that the company's all-new sports coupe concept car will make its world premiere at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September.

The new concept car, whose name remains secret at present, is a 2+2 coupe with an imposing road presence.

It was developed by Kia's design team in Europe under the guidance of Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, and manufactured in Europe.

Revealing the first 'preview image' of the new car, Schreyer enthused, "Kia has given me the opportunity to shape its whole brand design and character. Seldom does a designer have such a clean sheet with which to work."

"We started this exciting journey with the Kia ex_cee'd cabrio concept at the Geneva Show back in March and at Frankfurt I'm sure Kia will surprise the entire automotive world when people see our new sports coupe concept in the metal."

Schreyer was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate in recognition of his contribution to automotive design by the Royal College of Art (RCA), the UK's pre-eminent school of art and design.

The 53-year old Bavarian studied transportation design at the RCA in 1979/80 and worked at Audi and Volkswagen for the next 25 years, producing designs for vehicles such as the Audi TT and the new VW Beetle.

Schreyer was appointed to his new role of Chief Design Officer at Kia Motors in September 2006.
