Kia Kee Concept damaged during transport to North American debut

Kia unveiled its Kee Concept at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show and hailed the car as the "future face" of all Kia vehicles. But on the way to its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, that face was crumpled as the Kee broke free of its restraints and slammed headfirst into the front wall of the transporter.

Needless to say, the Kee's North American debut will be delayed as Kia had no choice but to pull the car from the LA show. According to Kia spokesperson Alex Fedorak, the Kee has already been sent back to Italy. "We had to send the car back to Italy to get repaired and there is no way it's going to make it back to the States in time for the LA show," Fedorak said.
