The first image of the new Kia pro_cee'd GT has been revealed, with the South Korean manufacturer promising it will be "fun to drive".
A solitary shot of the vehicle provides a huge hint that the car is set to be presented with a much more menacing design that the standard Kia pro_cee'd.
For example, striking lines across the Kia pro_cee'd GT's bonnet and side door panels gives off a racer vibe, while a sleek grille with a metallic silver border instantly catches the eye.
A 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, previously seen on the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, is the feature that helps give the vehicle its true power though.
In fact, writers at What Car? have mused that they expect the Kia pro_cee'd GT to deliver a power output of 200bhp and travel from 0-62mph in no longer than seven seconds.
Little else has been given away about Kia's first-ever hot hatch, however, except that it is set to be released in the second half of 2013.
