Drive the Kia Stinger GT at the Stinger Experience!

The Kia Stinger GT was recently named Gunaxin’s 2018 Car of the Year, largely due to its prowess on the track and autocross. We had great fun driving the Stinger on an autocross course in California, and we can’t wait to do it again at the Stinger Experience when it hits the Washington, DC area this weekend. The most exciting part is that you can drive one too! Wait, what?

Have you ever wanted to accelerate a high-performance fastback from 0-60 MPH in 4.7 seconds? Hell yeah you have, and now is your chance!
