Kia revealed a modified Optima Hybrid racecar

It may come as a surprise for most of us, but at this year's SEMA Show, the South Korean carmaker, Kia, has taken to motorsport with an Optima Hybrid. The model suffered a lot of changes, but all for a good cause, it had to become its best version.
The model we are talking about was built by GoGoGear, but we're guessing you kind of figured it by the shocking green accent color. Next year, in March, the Optima Hybrid will have its first competition at the USTCC.
It may sound a little weird, but the concept prepared especially for this event, also features elements that have nothing to do with racing: a 2.400 watt audio and video system with dual seven-inch monitors. The model has a striking combination of black and lime-green as finish.
The carmaker tried to reach its results and this is why now, the hybrid racecar has a racing exhaust made by Magnaflow, also includes a coil-cover suspension kit and last, but not least, Kia offered a rear wing for aerodynamics.
