Kia Unveils 4 Superhero-Themed Vehicles

Specially themed Kias showcased in Las Vegas for charity


It’s something you probably wouldn’t have thought possible but the superhero craze is coming to cars. Korean automaker Kia (PINK:KIMTF) unveiled a new set of superhero-themed rides at the Specialty Equipment Market Association trade show in Las Vegas.

The themed cars — made in conjunction with Time Warner’s (NYSE:TWX) DC Entertainment — each feature a different DC character with artwork by comic book veteran Jim Lee. The custom vehicles were built by West Coast Customs, Rides magazine and Super Street magazine as part of a program to benefit the We Can Be Heroes charity.

Here’s what each hero rides:

The Flash Forte Koup: Based on the scarlet speedster, this car is airbrushed red, orange and yellow and features a front end designed to appear as if it were breaking the sound barrier.

Aquaman Rio 5-Door: Based on the marine superhero, this car uses gold and green paint to create “scales” and features a rear window with comic panel etchings.

Green Lantern Soul: Based on the superheroes gifted with a powerful ring, this vehicle is green and black and features green-tinted windows and widened wheel wells.

Cyborg Forte 5-Door: Based on the half-man half-machine hero, this silver car is designed to match the Cyborg’s armor.

An Optima with a Batman theme was released earlier this year, and Kia also plans to unveil Superman and Wonder Woman-themed vehicles soon, the Los Angeles Times reports.
