In addition to Batman’s car company Kia intends shortly to introduce a further seven machines, each of which will be dedicated to a particular character from the “Justice League”. This special comic-book version of Kia vehicles are the result of a joint project of the South Korean automaker’s studio and DC Entertainment, which published the comics. Currently, the company Kia has developed only one special purpose vehicle – “Batmobile.” In fact, this is the Kia model of Optima but greatly modified and redesigned.

The car differs from the standard version of the model with the false radiator grille, which is designed as a bat, the additional overlays on fog lights, light elements in the front headlights (they are bright yellow, rather than the traditional white), additional bodywork, underbody lighting, drives and special design of the body painting marked throughout the whole car. Also, one of the interesting parts of Kia «Bat»-Optima is a “Bat-signal.” With the built-in headlights made in figures of a bat, the special light output, if sent, for example, on the wall, will show the icon of a Batman. On the inside the car is also full of elements that are “screaming” about its relationship to the comic book character. It is expected that the other seven cars of “Justice League” will be presented in the next 10 months by the Kia company. Machine is not intended for mass production, they will be sold at auction and the money collected from that will go to the charity.
