2011 Optima SX 0-70

Brand new 2011 Kia Optima 0-70. I timed 6.4-6.6 seconds. The exactness of YouTube says 6.8 seconds. Camera isn't great, recorded it with my iPhone, but as far as I could tell when I uploaded this, it's the only acceleration video on the new Optima. Was taking it for a test drive or I would have done this a touch better! The traction control was ON. This is the 2.0L turbo 4 cylinder with 274hp, 269lb/ft. This was a base model SX at $26,690. For those wondering, yes it does have true HID headlights, not just crap projection. The door chime is exactly like the Korean spec models with more of a jingle than a chime. The faux carbon fiber trim is not bad looking, for fake trim lol. The sport suspension is firm, but not hard. Reminds of the suspension on a Lexus IS, soft enough to kill the bumps, but firm enough to take a corner. Pardon the cut up video of the exterior, trying not to get the dealer plate and whatnot. If you haven't driven it, you will be highly impressed. I've driven almost everything in this price range now and it truly stands above everything else.

This is my 2011 Kia Optima Sx T-GDI. I am the first in the world to have this Exhaust system on this car. This Exhaust set up was stemmed from a turbo Hyundai and had minor modifications added to make it fit properly in my vehicle. With the help of Borla's staff and the request of my vehicle as a test subject for fitment issues I now have a Cat Back Exhaust system that will now be the trend setter for all Kia Optima owners to order an Exhaust system from Borla if you will....I am by no means a producer but I tried to show you all what Borla has to offer....Enjoy :) HERE IS THE LINK FOR THE Exhaust http://www.borla.com/products/product_detail.aspx?prod_sku=140469&ref=cat
