Kia's local division has ruled out the GT Atlantica for our market – being a US special – and couldn't offer further comments on potential limited-editions for the Stinger in Australia.

Earlier this year the company launched the Rafa Signature Edition, based on the entry-level 200S, sporting similar 19-inch wheels and a brown leather interior like the GT Atlantica, along with a Spanish flag decal complete with tennis star Rafael Nadal's signature – hence the name.
