Kia has introduced a variety of sports-themed models at the SEMA Motor Show.
First and foremost, the Slam Dunk Kia Optima Hybrid has a basket-ball inspired wrap and 20-inch alloy wheels. The styling leaves a lot to be desired, but at least the car comes with a basketball hoop.
While we're being styling critics, the Hole-In-One Kia Soul is all-out visual assault. Designed with input from golfer Michelle Wie, the model boasts a custom interior with "Snow White" leather seats, a blue dashboard, a pink headliner and a 26-inch LED TV.
The Kia Rio Retro Surf is described as the ideal beach vehicle as it features a sports suspension, a roof rack and 17-inch alloy wheels. Other highlights include a custom interior with plaid seats and a storage compartment to hold your board shorts.
On the other hand, the hockey-inspired Kia Forte Hat Trick has an aggressive body kit and 19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's four individual seats, a mini air hockey table and headrest-mounted video screens for playing NHL 2012.
Should the aforementioned models fail to impress you, the Kia Rio Spec-B racer is designed to compete in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Built by Kinetic Motorsports, the car has a roll cage, a quick-release steering wheel and a racing seat.
Lastly, the Kia Optima Hybrid Pace Car will be the official safety vehicle of the United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC). It has a coilover suspension, a Magnaflow exhaust and a variety of auxiliary lights.
