The eagerly awaited Kia Soul will tease concert goers this summer with a sneak-peek appearance during the 2008 Vans Warped Tour

The all new Kia Soul may be making its show debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show this fall, but it will be making sneak appearances at this summers Vans Warped Tour. Who knew that America's punk rock youth is Kia's target audience?

So besides watching your favorite bands like Pennywise, Rise Against, Reel Big Fish and Finland's Disco Ensemble among many others, and some of the best skate boarders in the business concert goers will be catching a glimpse of the all new Kia Soul which is scheduled to go on sale in the USA in spring 2009.

Kia does not reveal all of its Soul just yet though, the display model has been taped up in Vans' signature checkerboard pattern and shields the interior with darkened windows. Kia does show off some of its playfulness with red wheel spokes and side mirrors, but we are a little disappointed not to see an Independent style red spoke design.

Kia sponsors the Warped Tour and has started a sweepstakes where you can win tickets to the last show in LA including hotel room and a band meet-and-greet. You can enter the contest here. On a final note, bring the Warped Tour back to Europe!
