Reconfirming its commitment to its motorsports program and showing just how much their street cars can benefit from track competition, Kia unveiled the Forte Koup Type R Concept at the 2010 SEMA Show today.

Painted in a menacing matte-black, the Type R Concept gets its inspiration from the Forte Koup race cars that competed in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge last year.

Built by Kinetic Motorsports, which also builds Kia's race cars, the Type R gets a widebody stance with a revised front fascia, big 18-inch BBS RG 18-inch forged aluminum wheels and modified suspension components. Inside the racing theme is continued with custom seats, carbon fiber inlays and a short throw shifter.

Love the wide-body kit and the chin spoiler, but something about flat paint goes against every belief system I have.

yea that would be awesome.. it's got full bolt ons, lowering/ performance springs.. ridiculous brakes and a nice kit to boot basically its got everything that like 85% of most forte owners will do to their cars lol i wonder what the power numbers are on it.. i know they had the kinetic motorsports forte up to like 210 hp or something.. probably to the crank .. but still thats 40 hp up from stock

Agreed about the paint. Otherwise this thing is rad! I think someone from KIA's research & development department should read our requests and put a damn turbo on these things.

Actually Ryan, I believe they have already announced a 2012 or 13 forte w/turbo AAAAAND, TK just released theirs and I'm sure there will be more on the market soon. This car is just too hot to ignore.
