2013 Kia Rio 5-Door Aquaman Edition

It’s not exactly the Justice League swooping down to the 2012 SEMA Auto Show to save us from tyrannical custom vehicles, but these DC superhero-inspired Kia models are pretty cool in their own right.

As a joint collaboration between Kia, DC Entertainment, and West Coast Customs, the Kia Rio 5-Door was one of the models treated to a superhero make-over to promote DC’s "We Can Be Heroes" campaign. To no one’s surprise, the eco-friendly Rio became the ultimate alter-ego of DC’s resident environment guardian, Aquaman.

The Aquaman-inspired Rio 5-door received the hero’s famous gold, green, and orange exterior colors to go with a body kit that incredibly includes custom-fabricated fins. Body lighting across the exterior are also part of the program, as are Oracle LED wheel rings and a new set of 20" color-matched Asanti wheels wrapped in Continental tires.

Inside, the Aquaman theme continues with the reupholstered seats dressed in green leather with yellow and gold accents. Green suede was also used on the headliner while the back seats bear Aquaman’s logo stitched into it. Open up the trunk of the Rio and watch as it pops up like an underwater treasure chest where you’ll find Aquaman comic-book art with a polycast cutout and surrounded with Oracle LED lighting. Last, but certainly not least, a pair of 7" Rosen Entertainment monitors have also been installed, as well as a 12" subwoofer with two coaxial component speakers and amps.

besides children and gamers and maybe, some collectors, Idon’t know who would like this car...

my God, and the interior is hideous ... Therefore the combination of green and yellow, those shades ... and if you add a little speed, I think we will need a vomit bag

I understand that they want to stand out, especially with a car not extraordinary, but do not think this is a good strategy

which was the inspiration? video games? cartoon? I do not know the name, but the interpretation seems to be at a very low level.

I do not understand what is that stuff from the back? so colorful and busy ... no, definitely not....

what I do not understand is why they spent money to do that? it is hideous

oh, really? seems really ugly to me! honest! why they did that?!
