Kia is celebrating the arrival of its first high-performance model with a limited edition variant that features a host of unique interior and exterior styling enhancements. With a production run of just 500 units across Europe, the ‘Kia pro_cee’d GT 1st Edition’ is based closely on the all-new Kia pro_cee’d GT.
This limited-run model, of which only a handful are to be allocated to the UK, features a very high level of standard specification over and above the, mechanically identical, pro_cee’d GT.
Items such as Adaptive Xenon headlights, automatic air conditioning, satellite navigation and a large sunroof will be amongst the items on the spec list. Unique GT 1st Edition features will include black high-gloss 18-inch wheels and door mirror housings, stainless steel scuff plates with red illuminated GT badging and unique numbering, red cabin-footwell lighting and premium-quality velour floor mats with red double stitching.
Production of the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT, the newest members of the cee’d family, is scheduled to start at Kia’s Zilina plant in Slovakia in May 2013, with cars going on sale across Europe from mid-year.
Prices and specifications will be confirmed closer to the on sale date.
