  1. Red, if it is available with an interior other than black.
    Next blue, which is apparently available with light grey interior.
    Maybe yellow, if without black interior.

    Dark gray metallic with Brembro brakes and 19" wheels; legal tint on front side windows and one grade darker for the back side windows and rear window. Black or possibly black/red interior. A carbon fiber exterior package would seal the deal and look incredibly sweet. I'll take mine now please.
    The blue below is gorgeous to me; if it makes it to the US, it's my first choice. My runner-up pick would be that also-goregeous metallic grey.

    Yellow with the black interior and the tinted windows

    As someone that once had a yellow car, I'm not sure I would recommend one, since they are bee magnets on sunny days and insect magnets at night when parked under parking lot lights.
    Other than that, like ATX said, that color combo would definitely fit a car named Stinger..lol
    I definitely want the red interior which would go well with the light gray or white exterior. Please note that the photos of the Stinger at some of the auto shows appears to be white when actually it is light gray. As such, either the white or light gray exterior would be my first choice followed by the blue exterior.
    My favorite color.

    What do you guys think of this Purple Color?

    And that's why I love this blue, whatever it's called; it changes color based on how light hits it. I must have this color on my GT.

    Interesting, I never realized its the same color. Saw a few photos before and thought they were different colors.
    It has gotten some good reviews - I am surprised they have not done more colors like this. I remember the Pontiac Trans Am had an orange color back in the late '90s, maybe early "00s, that would do this. You just have to make sure you like "both" of the colors.

    Always hard to know for sure by a picture, but it looks a little darker in comparison.

    Thanks, I was hoping it was the same since on the Optima its called Silky Silver too.

    Well, it is probably the same then. I did not realize it was called that in the U.S. In person always looks different. I saw an Optima with the silver color last night and it looked lighter than this picture, but it is probably the same.

    Ordered the dark metallic grey with black interior..... If I could work put how to attach a pic I would.....

    UPDATE - just been told by the dealer the dark metalic grey (panatella metal) is NOT available on the GT - WTF????

    Do you mean Panthera Metal, or is there a panatella metal also? According to that leaked document, Panthera is a "dark purple" and doesn't appear available for the GT. There's a ceramic grey on the GT, which is likely the dark grey color they've been showing.
    From the doc:
    Standard colour options for the 200S, 200Si, 330S and 330Si will include Panthera Metal (a dark purple), Silky Silver, Ceramic Grey, Sunset Yellow, Hichroma Red and Micro Blue, while Deep Chrome Blue will be offered as a cost option.
    For the GT-Line and GT, standard colours will include Silky Silver, Ceramic Grey, Sunset Yellow, Hichroma Red and Micro Blue, adding Dark Chroma Blue, Snow White Pearl and Aurora Black as cost options.

    Forgive my spelling, didn't bother to double check it but yes, one and the same. Sorry.
    I'm not allowed to tell you how I know but from what I've seen - the Panthera Metal ain't purple - it looks like the almost black grey that's in a lot of the videos. The deep chroma blue appears almost (dark) purple. The ceramic grey is indeed grey but not dark enough for me.....time will tell I suppose. Never ordered a car before using you-tube videos as the colour swatches.....
    Yes the Panthera Metal is the dark gray metallic color. It is shown on the Kia Korean website (link I listed on this thread).
    Also intersting/misleading is the "2 trim levels for each model" when the video I posted from the Korean market (with prices) showed 2 each as well, but they list 3 trims for the GT line in this article.
    What we have to remember is that not all markets will be identical regarding trim levels and exterior/interior colors. Time will tell what is destined for the U.S. market.

    And unfortunately NOT available on the AUS spec GT.....

    Oh ok, I know what color grey you're talking about now. Why would they not offer that on the GT, that's nuts. The GT is top-shelf, you'd think they would offer all colors and all options.

    minus the expletives that was my comment to the dealer
    Yellow is my clear favorite. It's a sunset yellow that is much classier than a basic yellow or orange. If they have this color offered then I'll but the Stinger with a black interior.
    If they don't offer the sunset yellow then I probably wont buy a stinger.
    These are all the official colours, I don't know which markets will be getting what however.
    If the names could be implemented in the voting we can get a more accurate result.

    P2M w/red interior

    Yes, that is my choice as well. Maybe the black interior depending on the shade of red as it looks in person.
    The gray is underappreciated on the poll in my opinion. I saw an F-150 the other day with almost the exact shade of metallic gray and it looked awesome (I am not a Ford guy so that is quite a compliment coming from me). Checking out some of the youtube videos with the gray color featured (and a video of this color at the auto show in Korea) might convince some of its exclusivity. I doubt it will be the most popular color (or even the 5th most popular) but it will look the most stealthy (without quite as much challenge to keep it clean as the black). The swatch below does not do it justice at all.
    I believe the car with the Silky Silver (4SS) exterior is the one they have been showing off at the auto shows, which almost looks white depending on the lighting. I am considering that color as well as Pearl White (SWP) and Panthera Metal (P2M) along with the red interior.

    The Panthera Metal is throughout these videos. I like the silky silver as well but would have to see it in person. It will definitely stand out as there are not any cars that I know of that have that tone.

    I wanted the Panthera Metal too - unfortunately in Australia we can't get the GT in that colour.....sucks!

    I can see why you say it won't be the most popular. I can't base the optima sales off of this because of the difference in buyers and taste each of them have. There are ALOT of black optimas around but that won't give us any indication on sales. I hope to have the first one in South Dakota. Both Billion Kia dealers I've talked to said they'll call when they have an invoice and ship date. The waiting game continues...
    Depending on how bad you want it, have one shipped. Might take awhile but you'll be buying the one you want.

    I don't want it THAT bad.....gone with the deep chroma blue instead and, having seen it a few times on youtube, am over my disappointment and am very happy with the choice.
