Dont get exited now people - a WRC KIA is factory spec rice.
http://motormouth.com.au/myvehicle/carreview.aspx?article=2003_7_kia

Last night I pulled up at a freeway on ramp to see, much to my amusement a shiny new WRC KIA line up beside me. I looked at the massive wing on the back, the non functional hood scoop on the hood and then I looked at the driver - with my favourite "You are kidding - arent ya?" expression.

He looked away, then planted it as the lights changed to green - with me stuck at the lights looking the place this KIA used to be as he's getting got full gas on - getting the jump on me.

About 3 seconds later, I snap out of it, and for no other reason than to be an arrogant d!ck, I launch. By this stage the KIA is about....oooo....maybe 2 or 3 car lengths ahead of me.
Halfway through the shift to second I have completely owned him to the tune of 3 lengths, before I closed down to sedately turn onto the freeway.

Strangely, there was no feeling of glorious triumph. Maybe due to the fact that the KIA has 71kw and my WRX has over 210, or
maybe due to the fact I just wasted my precious 98 octane on a car with less pickup than a man with no hands in a greasy egg collecting competition.

Acted like a wanker(?), yes I did. Still, I bet there isnt one of you out there that could let a WRC Rio driver entertain the thought that they schooled a WRX.
- however, I will be better behaved from now on.

:D

I don't know what's funnier: That Kia produces that car, or that people actually buy it.

Yours is the first story I've heard about seeing one in the wild.

You dealt with him appropriately. The last thing we need is for Kia people to start claiming they 0wn3d a WRX. :p
