We'll admit it: We're totally smitten with the
Kia Track'ster Concept
that debuted at last week's
Chicago Auto Show
. And it's not just because we like the idea of a 250-horsepower, all-wheel-drive hot hatch from Korea, it's because this concept shows bits and pieces of what the next-generation
could look like, including a possible three-door configuration.
, however, has
no immediate plans to send the Track'ster into production
. In fact, specific elements like the turbocharged engine don't even exist – this is purely a design study, albeit a hot one.
The process of building the Track'ster started a little over nine months ago, and the folks at
were able to watch the entire creation process. Ideas and sketches turned into clay models which were later photographed, detailed, and sent over to a company that specializes in building
. As a special treat, we even get to meet the
donor vehicle that gave its life for the birth of this concept car.
