Budget race series entrant previews possible hot-hatch look for Kia's Rio supermini
And while there's no sign yet of any hot Kias coming our way in the UK this B-spec racer prepped by Stateside Kia race squad Kinetic - think the Koreans' equivalent of Mugen - suggests it might want to address that sooner rather than later.
138hp doesn't sound like a whole lot but stripped, caged, lowered and running on sticky rubber just tell us this doesn't look like a whole lot of fun. The first truly PH-worthy Kia? Could be.
