Kia is teaming up with the Justice League once again to create another show car that will be on display at the Chicago Auto Show. At the 2012 SEMA Show, Kia showed off various models inspired by DC Entertainment characters Batman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern and Cyborg, but a Superman-themed Kia Optima Hybrid will roll into the Windy City for next week's show.
In the above drawing, we only get to see a small portion of this car inspired by the Man of Steel, but it will have the requisite red-and-blue paint scheme with Superman's shield on the hood (subtle, it is not).
The previous cars include the Batman Optima, Aquaman Rio, Flash Forte Koup, Green Lantern Soul and Cyborg Forte. All six cars were created to raise awareness for the "We Can Be Heroes" campaign, which helps families in eastern Africa affected by drought and famine.
The 2013 Chicago Auto Show is just around the corner and Kia Motors America, in partnership with DC Entertainment, will unveil a new Justice League-inspired custom ride... the Superman Optima Hybrid! The 10-month long partnership has already produced five character-themed Kia vehicles – Batman, Aquaman, The Flash, Cyborg and Green Lantern -- in support of "We Can Be Heroes", DC Entertainment's giving campaign to bring help and hope to the children, women and families affected by drought and famine in the Horn of Africa
