You know that feeling that comes over you when something incredible is just around the corner but you can’t quite see all the details just yet? It’s that mix of combined anticipation, excited energy, adrenaline and being equipped with the knowledge that you are allllmost there. You know it’s what you’ve been waiting for but you can feel it’s so much more than you imagined. Momentum and patience, on the inside it feels like watching electrical sparks bounce off the pavement.
We’ve certainly been feeling a lot of this as we wait on the arrival of our #OneTinyHumanComingSoon but this time we’re talking about the anticipation of something else entirely. Sunday Jan 8th, Kia will be unveiling itself in a form you’ve never seen from them before.
Peter Schreyer – President & Chief Design Officer had this to say:
“This new vehicle is going to fundamentally change the global image of Kia. It will revolutionize the way people think about the brand and propel us upwards into a different era. You cannot believe how excited I am about this car.”
We’ve gotten glimpses of this new vehicle revealed only through a series of four video episodes (I’ve included them below so you catch up!) I’ve been honored to be part of the Kia story for quite a while now and there is just no way I could possibly miss this event. The first unveiling will be in Detroit THIS SUNDAY and I will be there providing live coverage on site!! Want to join me???? Jan 8th, 6pm EST Kia will be streaming this LIVE as well at TheCurveAhead.net
The Curve Ahead – Episode 1 (Twists and Turns)
The curve ahead represents unchartered territory, or a journey into the unknown. As an exciting new paradigm of performance beckons, it’s Kia’s attention to daring design detail that makes the journey more alluring.
0-to-100 kph. A benchmark for any car operating on a higher level of performance, and the number that enthusiasts look for first. The fastest-accelerating Kia to date represents a new paradigm of performance, its heart-pounding power encouraging you to grip the wheel a little more tightly.
The Curve Ahead – Episode 2 ( The Fastest Accelerating Kia)
Curiosity is the desire, the need, to learn more. On the road, it is the fascination about what lies beyond the curve ahead.
The Curve Ahead – Episode 3 (The Silhouette)
The curve, and the sense of curiosity, is also brought to life in the concave, fastback silhouette of Kia’s long-awaited all-new car. Inspired by a concept, Kia’s newest vehicle marries heart-pounding performance with purposeful and progressive design.
