Following a semi-leak on Saturday, Kia has released more photos and technical details with the 2013 pro_cee'd GT.

Along with the cee'd GT, these will be the company's "most performance-focused production cars ever" and are scheduled for a public debut this March at the Geneva Motor Show. Peter Schreyer was in charge of designing the two cars which feature a new aggressive body kit, 18-inch alloys, LED DRLs, red brake calipers and Recaro seating.

Power will come from a 1.6-liter GDI turbocharged engine producing 201 hp (150 kW) and 195 lb-ft (265 Nm) of torque. The engine sends power to front wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox, enabling the cars to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 7.9 seconds.

The pro_cee'd GT will go on sale in United Kingdom mid-2013, followed by the hatchback towards the end of the year. Both cars will be produced starting with mid-May at Kia's Zilina plant located in Slovakia.

Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
