Would Batman drive a Kia?
The new crowd at Kia is a bold bunch. With newfound success in models like the Optima, Soul and Forte, the South Korean group has pulled out all the stops to promote their new models as the “cool” alternative. In the past, enlisting the help of spokesperson Blake Griffin and devising overly-annoying commercials with dancing hamsters, Kia has now teamed up with DC Comics for a trifectca of superhero inspired super rides.
The first, is this Batman-themed Kia Optima with a full-fledged flat black wrap complete with the Batman insignia throughout the side and even molded into the front grille. It also comes with a more aggressive body kit, and enough yellow LED’s to make Robin wet himself. Finishing off this triangle of import super-justice, the Forte and Soul have also been teased with Flash and Green Lantern inspired personalities of their own. Both of which, to be on display in SEMA the end of this month.
