Over the past decade, the once called “dark horses” of the automotive industry have been coming up with a lot of new and exciting offerings. So much so that, some have ever led to believe that kimchi, is now hotter than wasabi. Yes, I'm talking about the Koreans, and they're really giving the Japanese a run for their money when it comes to making quality automobiles. One of them is KIA, and they've got something new brewing up that should turn the world on its head. 
 
Scheduled to make its official debut at the Paris Motor Show on the 27th of September, KIA just recently released the first teaser images of their upcoming all-new 2013 Carens. They have, however, unwittingly tried to disguise its final appearance by publishing the photo negatives. So, to give you a better view of what it will look like in two month's time, we've inverted the colors for you.

Before last weekend set in, American drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. was happily holding-on to his record for World’s Longest Car Drift, which he set in a stock Ford Mustang at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in December of 2008. Two and a half years later, Mauro Calo had the pleasure of snatching the title away from him in a 2011 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG at the Mercedes-Benz World in England.
