Kia Optima Batman

Carmaker Kia decided to join forces with DC Entertainment and Rides magazine. Why? Together the specialists plan to introduce a new model, a new Optima, inspired from Batman. The new model will be revealed for the first time at the Time Warner Center in New York City. When it comes to the design, the engineers found inspiration in the comic book icon Jim Lee. This is not all. It will be part of the We Can Be Heroes giving campaign developed by DC Entertainment. This way, the specialists will try to raise funds for the African people, to help then with the starvation.

The new Kia Batman Optima has a matte and pain black exterior finish. The engineers have offered a lowered coil over suspension, a more aggressive body kit and to handle the extra power, large Ksport performance brakes. To transfer the output to the road, the model uses a new set of bespoke 20-inch black alloy wheels. It also features a performance exhaust system. The designers have developed a specially made front grille that looks like a batwing in terms of shape. Engineers had to work up to 40 hours to finish the process. On the inside, we can see lots of yellow LED accents and inside the HID headlights we can find the bat signal. Also, the designers have provided black leather and suede with yellow accent stitching for the seating surface of the cabin.

There is a different story for the trunk. Inside we will see a bat suit and a cowl. In the center console there are located utility throwing stars. There will be eight specially made Kia models representing the Justice League characters and this Kia Batman Optima is the first one to benefit the campaign. These are all the information available so far on the matter.
