The Kia Supper Suite VIP experience extends beyond the kitchen as guests will be whisked to and from the events in a fleet of chauffeur-driven Kia vehicles, including the award-winning Sorento and the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger.

A five-passenger sportback poised to redefine a segment currently populated by European automakers, the Stinger is the highest-performance production vehicle in the company’s history and is backed by Kia’s industry-leading warranty.

With more power on tap than the Audi S5 Sportback, BMW 440i Gran Coupe, and Infiniti Q50, the Stinger GT accelerates to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, quicker than the six-cylinder Porsche Panamera. Pushing the twin turbocharged V6 to its full potential will allow the Stinger GT to achieve a top speed of 167 mph.

“Unlike any Kia that has come before it, the Stinger really is a dream car for us and after years of commitment and hard work from a passionate group of designers, engineers and executives around the world, that dream is now a reality,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America.

Designed in Frankfurt and developed on the legendary Nürburgring circuit, the all-wheel drive Stinger underwent a rigorous research and development program, including continuous runs down the infamous Grossglockner High Alpine Road in the Austrian Alps. As such, “we feel confident in the Stinger’s ability to deliver our VIPs in style and comfort in the cold climate and the high altitude, snowy roads of Park City” explains James Bell, Kia’s director of corporate communications.
