Kia Track’ster. Kia’s Track’ster Concept Mini Cooper this is one of best concept car at the Chicago Auto Show for us, This car designed with smart looking and aggressive concept, totally new for Mini Cooper Design.
Tom Kearns the KIA chief designer said :
The idea was to make the Track’ster tough looking, like a bulldog. We wanted to base the car in reality so people instantly knew it was a Soul, but with a lot of attitude. It had to be a bold interpretation that would change people’s conceptions of what a sporty Kia could be.
Every concept car we do is about gathering information from consumers and media.” Track’ster was just a concept and not plans to put it into production feasible.
That and the ambiguous response we got when asking about release time.
