Designed by Peter Schereyer, Kia's hot hatch has finally emerged. The much anticipated and teased pro_cee'd GT, the Korean answer to the Volkswagen GTI, has racy looks and the engine to match. Like the Hyundai Veloster Turbo, the Kia is propelled by a 1.6-liter four-banger engine kicking out 201 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque.

Full details are expected at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Until then, feast your eyes on this track-inspired gem and dream a little about what color Recaro bucket seats you'd fit inside.

Also, toss a penny in the well and wish the car a speedy arrival in the U.S.—for now this beauty is just forbidden fruit.
