Holy Batmobile! Kia and DC Team Up to Build a Batman-Themed Optima SXL
Kia and DC Comics’ souped-up Optima SXL looks nothing like the Batmobile, but it’s the only Kia Bruce Wayne would be caught dead in. The Bat-Kia was recently unveiled in New York to kickstart the ‘We Can Be Heroes’ campaign that’s striving to eradicate hunger in the Horn of Africa.
The Bat-Kia is a 2-liter turbocharged inline four version with a 274-horsepower engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. It’s pretty slick too, with black leather interiors, under chassis yellow LED lights, and a custom front grille in the shape of a batwing.
