Externally, the GT version differs from the basic redrawn bumper with enlarged air intakes, gloss-black accents and red accents around the perimeter.

In full accordance with the expectation presented in the Network hot hatch Kia Ceed GT was not particularly powerful. He got under the hood of a familiar, but slightly modified Assembly 1.6 T-GDi that develops 204 HP and 265 N•m (1500 to 4500 rpm). In the past generation Sid model with the same engine was listed as “heated”. In the new , will be considered similarly, though the company stresses that it took six months just for setting driving habits under the guidance of albert Biermann, former chief designer of BMW M Department and now responsible in the conglomerate Hyundai/KIA for sportivanya version.

The rear bumper is also changed. He other side of the section, a black diffuser and dual exhaust. 18-inch aluminum wheels new design (tires: Michelin Pilot Sport 4) seen enlarged in thickness and diameter brake discs (320 and then 28 mm vs 25 mm and 288 mm standard SIDA).

Characteristics of the suspension, and electronics (stability control, vectoring thrust due to the slowdown) specially modified for the GT. In a chassis with fully independent suspension adjusted not only the parameters of the springs, dampers, anti-roll bars, and geometry. The springs at both the front and back, and then harder, and stabilizers, on the contrary, softer to keep the tyres in contact with the asphalt on the inside of the turn. All seasoned with the under-five millimeters against ordinary European SIDA (total clearance of 135 mm). But the result, on conviction of the firm, visible: GT responsive, willing to change route, better implements traction. Besides the steering wheel here is 17% sharper than the last GT and requires 2.44 turns from lock to lock.

Black leather and suede with red stitching on the seats supplemented the wheel with a beveled rim and logo GT GT embroidery on the back, a black ceiling, aluminum pedals. Multimedia with a screen of seven or eight inches. Options: JBL Premium audio system, autopilot second level the Following Lane Assist (acceleration, braking and steering within the band at the speed of 0-180 km/h).

Last Kia with the GT nameplate pleasing selection of three – and five-door body style, but offered only a six-speed “mechanics”. Now the three-door has gone from the range, but buyers Sid GT will be available in two transmissions: the default six — speed “mechanics” and optional is a seven — step “robot” with two clutches and paddles. With it is the selector of modes of motion. Dynamic parameters the developers have promised to publish later. In public, hatchback, produced in Slovakia, will appear in October at the Paris motor show. In Europe the CEE’d GT will arrive in the first quarter of 2019. The prospect of its appearance in the Russian representation of the company to predict not ready yet.

“That sounds controversial, but I believe that after the development of the car and weight of components to it, you can probably design most of the other things […] is important To me that I was creative, this is a stimulus to life,” says Kalam on the eve of his 65th birthday.

A month ago Ian Callum left brand Jaguar, where he worked for 20 years, explaining that it’s “time for personal and professional development.” Now in the British Warwick has started a new company Callum with specialization in “design and engineering business,” “integrated design, development and manufacturing of small series and custom”. Kellam in the firm are not major, and one of the founders. He admits that he is already working on the appearance of a new car.

The company Callum four “fathers” (left to right): technical Director Adam Donfrancesco (Noble, Aston Martin Vantage GT8 and GT12, the Jaguar F-type GT4), design Director Ian Callum, commercial Director Tom bird (PwC, Barclays, Jaguar Land Rover, Jaguar C-X75), program Director David Fairbairn (18 years of experience in the automotive industry, Jaguar Lightweight E-type).

“The focus [of the company Callum] will be only those things that we like. I don’t want to design the interior of a train or a kettle. I was interested in doing art, not pure practicality, explained Ian in an interview with Top Gear. — The new car will be. This is a large and ambitious project. Chassis, power plant, exterior, interior — we’re going to work through. One day I want to build a machine entirely, and it is a good place to start”.

In an interview with Pistonheads online designer added: “I want to take some of those cars are worked, and slightly alter them. I have such a right, whether Aston or Jaguar. This is a good starting point to engage in promising projects. Don’t want them to think I was just a store.”

“My name hanging over the door, but if I want to succeed I need to surround yourself with good people […] In the team’s four Directors, all with equal rights, there’s no hierarchy,” explains Ian. Stylized letter “C” — company logo Callum.

In Warwick the company of 18 employees is situated on an indiscreet area in 1858 m2. All the necessary equipment and the latest technologies are available (like with the support of an unnamed investor). In mind there are providers and contractors. Details about the first draft will be published “in the coming weeks.” Ian Callum seem happy: “I was very lucky. Don’t get me wrong, but now I have the choice of what to do each day. I’ll be the designer of your future. I had, maybe, 15 years old, and I want to use them to the maximum.”
