FAST ‘N’ CURIOUS
NUMBERS GAME Hyundai-Kia’s Namyang technical centre has 15,000 engineers and support staff, more than 150 buildings and 3000 test cars being trialled at any time. During a journalist visit this week we spotted more than 12 Kia Stinger prototypes and disguised versions of the group’s all-new baby SUV. SHOW STOPPER Range Rover is about to unveil a big brother for its suburbanite Evoque. Said to be based on the platform of the Jaguar F-Pace, it will be revealed at the Geneva motor show in the second week of March and British sources predict it will be called Velar. 370Z NISMO ON CARDS The second Nismo performance model for Australia will be the 370Z. The GT-R Nismo has just been launched and, despite earlier hints that the performance sub-brand’s second model would be based on the Juke, the 370Z is definitely the next to get the go-fast treatment.
