The DJ will be back for more on November 5 and 6 wîth the tattoo artist returning on November 6.
'We always enjoy attending and displaying at the SEMA Show as it really lends us the creative and artistic license to push the envelope of our 'Power to Surprise'' mantra, said Michael Sprague, vice president of marketing, KMA. 'The vehicles displayed this year represent not only possible directions for design evolution of the Kia brand, but also express the passion we pour into both our concept designs and production vehicles.'
Borrego Limited SEMA Concept
An extension of the all-new Borrego midsize SÚV, the Borrego Limited SEMA concept offers a §téälth-lòòking version of the midsize SÚV wîth a monotone black exterior enhanced by limo-tint windows. Lowered for a sleeker profile and outfitted wîth flashy 22-inch Avarus Chrome Wheels and Spec-X 285/45R22 tires, this Borrego concept projects an assertive and sophisticated stance fit for a motorcade as much as cruising down the Vegas strip.
Chrome side fender vents, side mirrors, door handles and a custom chrome mesh grille add flair to its already striking and commanding presence.
The interior of the midsize SÚV also has been revamped, wîth custom leather upholstery on all seats embossed in an alligator skin pattern. Completing the blinged-out experience will be a larger-than-life sound system backing up a TV and DVD player and a navigation system. Molded directly into the interior, all electronics create a modern and streamlined appeal, all color-keyed to match the exterior of the vehicle.Source - Kia
