Kia Motors America (KMA) has teamed up with DC Entertainment and Rides magazine to create a Batman-inspired Optima. The Optima goes on display this week at the Time Warner Center to coincide with New York Comic Con. It signals the beginning of a 10-month partnership based on the Justice League characters. Kia super hero vehicles will also help raise awareness for DC Entertainment's We Can Be Heroes giving campaign, a relief effort to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa.

Kia, DC Entertainment and Rides designed and built the Batman-themed Optima. They transformed the exterior with a matte- and piano-black paint scheme, a dramatically lowered coilover suspension and muscular ground effects kit. Features include Ksport performance brakes for extreme stopping power, custom-designed 20-inch black wheels and a performance exhaust system. Other exterior modifications include a custom front grille shaped like a batwing, yellow LED lighting accent and the iconic bat signal etched into the HID headlights. The Optima's seating surfaces are covered in custom black leather and suede with bold yellow accent stitching.
