  • Developed on the racetrack.

    Born on the tracks, built for the roads.

    Our engineers put the Stinger to its limits on the iconic Nürburgring race track in Germany to ensure its dynamic performance is innate in every vehicle.

  • Fine-tuned for Aussie roads.

    To deliver exceptional large sports sedan handling with innate comfort and dependability, Stinger was subjected to a localisation and tuning program, over thousands of kilometres across urban, country and outback roads.

  • Tested to the extremes.

    The Stinger endured months of frozen lake testing in sub-zero temperatures and icy conditions of northern Sweden. Extreme weather testing ensures the gran turismo-inspired handling and the engaging, fun-to-drive character of a rear-wheel drive sport sedan remain in all conditions.

Safety to its very core.
