2006 Kia Sidewinder

(from LA Auto Show)  This Kia is a two-seat, lean, mean, drifting machine! The Sidewinder’s power comes from a compressed natural gas turbine, which feeds electricity to a series of in-wheel, high torque, electric motors. This environmentally-responsible vehicle would surely grab the most attention while carving lines sideways through the race course. Kia chose drift racing as its theme for the “LA Adventure,” because Los Angeles was the scene of the first officially-sanctioned American drifting event.
