As these images reaffirm, at least one variant will be driven by the Hyundai-Kia partnership's new 272kW and 510Nm twin-turbo V6.
No surprise, Kia has promised this new sedan will be its quickest offering ever, claiming a 0-100km/h time of 5.1 seconds.
This latest video reveals a series of tightly-cropped glimpses at the new car's design, including a close look at the headlights, rear lip, exhaust tips and vents, along with a quick look through the sunroof and into the cabin.
Of course, although a little bit thrilling for fans, this teaser campaign has already been brought undone, thanks to a spy photo in November that revealed the finished car sitting on the factory floor.
