Kia records the tennis star's emotions and reactions while driving as his heart rate soars to 175bpm at the wheel of the new gran turismo.

31 Jan 2018 | International News : U.K.

The all new Kia Stinger gran turismo has been praised for its performance, refinement, ride, design and handling - and now for its ability to excite the emotions of its driver.

Kia Motors challenged Spanish tennis superstar Rafael Nadal - currently ranked number one in the world tennis rankings - to match his peak match-day heart rate during a spirited drive of the Stinger. While at the wheel, Nadal's heart rate soared to 175bpm - almost three times a second, and only 11bpm short of his on-court peak.

Rafael Nadal has been a brand ambassador for Kia Motors since 2004, and recently took delivery of his very own Kia Stinger. Powered by a 3.3-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, the Stinger is the fastest-accelerating and most powerful production Kia ever.
