even if Superman did have a four-wheeled ride, it wouldn’t be a regular sedan but for the rest of the mortals (or in this instant, earthlings), the Superman KIA Optima Hybrid Sedan, should be enough to show your undying love for the Man of Steel. unveiled at the recent 2013 Chicago Auto Show, this superhero-inspired ride is the sixth of the eight Justice League themed vehicles turned out by collaboration between the Korean automaker and the comic book company. unlike its superhero counterpart, this Superman KIA Optima Hybrid does not wield any unworldly power and its innards, specifically the drivetrain, remains pretty much untouched. for the uninitiated, the Optima Hybrid is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder full parallel hybrid system that offers a combined output of 206 horsepower with a peak torque of 195 lb-ft and is mated to a six-speed electronically controlled Sportmatic transmission. obviously, this ride is more down-to-earth (pun intended) then the superhero whom it drew its inspiration from. externally, custom features of this one-of-a-kind vehicle includes a dark metallic blue and chrome red paint scheme, the familiar Superman’s chest emblem on the hood and the trunk, red glowing headlamps, an artwork specially designed by Jim Lee on the rear window, huge 22-inch wheels matched to its flared fenders and a height-adjustable suspension controllable from the cockpit. the Superman theme continues into the interior with custom upholstery in, you guessed it, the blue theme (surprisingly, no red) and a good number of the superhero iconic shield featured within. take a few more look in a small gallery below. also catch the official unveiling further down the page. learn more about the Superman KIA Optimal Hybrid Sedan HERE.
