The sixth super hero from the Justice League that Kia will pay a tribute to is Superman. This will be the sixth one-off Kia Optima patterned after a super hero. To make this possible, Kia teamed up with the Super Street magazine staff. It got a stock 2013 Optima Hybrid and gave it some muscular flared fenders.
It was then painted using Superman’s colors. Most of the vehicle is painted blue but there’s a metallic red stripe around the side windows and out over the rear fenders to remind us of Kal-El’s cape. In addition, Superman’s logo is stamped on the hood. In a press release, Kia said that the beveled red grille supposedly resembles Superman’s belt, while red-tinted headlamps “glow with the same intensity” of Superman’s heat vision.
Kia isn’t just doing this for kicks. Kia is also hoping to raise awareness and possibly raise funding for DC Entertainment’s We Can Be Heroes campaign, which seeks to relieve the suffering of families in the Horn of Africa who face famine and drought.
It’s rumored that Kia will be building a car for Wonder Woman. There may even be an eighth car that supposedly uses all the elements from the seven comic book heroes. This means that it will pay homage to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg.
