2013 Kia Cyborg-Inspired Forte

Cyborg-inspired Forte 5-door

2013 Kia Cyborg-Inspired Forte
Built by RIDES magazine and based on Cyborg, the half human/half machine superhero for the modern age, the athletic and agile Kia Forte 5-door embodies Cyborg's communications prowess, power and endurance. It features coilover suspension for more aggressive maneuverability and widened custom metal fenders that recall Cyborg's ability to mechanically morph to face any challenge. This robotic road machine sits on 18-inch Rotiform TMB wheels with chrome lip and red anodized bolts. Other exterior elements include a vented air scoop on the hood and side ports with red LED lights. An Aztec silver paint job enhances the fluid lines and balanced proportions of the Forte 5-door, while matching the polished steel of Cyborg's armor. 2013 Kia Cyborg-Inspired Forte
The vehicle interior consists of red perforated leather and red suede similar to the red glow pulsing from Cyborg's power core. Red and silver trim highlights the Cyborg emblem featured within the interior design. The tablet in the center console reinforces the fact that Cyborg is constantly plugged in—a hub for communication and information. And the JL Audio sound system is another technological enhancement that highlights the fun side of the Justice League's youngest member.

• Kia and DC Entertainment band together to support 'We Can Be Heroes' – DC Entertainment's giving campaign designed to raise awareness and funds to fight the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa

• The four world-debuts at SEMA expand on the popularity of the Batman-inspired Optima unveiled in New York's Time Warner Center two weeks ago


LAS VEGAS, October 30, 2012 - Kia Motors America (KMA) and DC Entertainment kicked off the 2012 SEMA Show today in superhero style with five radical machines inspired by the members of the Justice League: The Flash Forte Koup, Aquaman Rio 5-door, Cyborg Forte 5-door, Green Lantern Soul and the previously unveiled Batman Optima. Built by West Coast Customs, RIDES and Super Street, each of the vehicles feature custom artwork by legendary comic book artist and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee and are intended to raise awareness for DC Entertainment's 'We Can Be Heroes' giving campaign to help fight the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Each Justice League character was assigned to a specific Kia vehicle based on personality and key attributes to create these five iconic works of art on wheels.

'Working together with DC Entertainment, West Coast Customs, RIDES and Super Street to create a fleet of superhero-inspired machines has been an incredible collaboration and the end result is five one-of-a-kind Justice League cars that bring each of these legendary comic book superheroes to life,' said Michael Sprague, executive vice president, marketing & communications, KMA. 'We are proud to be raising awareness for the 'We Can Be Heroes' giving campaign and look forward to unveiling three more crime-fighting Kias at future auto shows and comic conventions as our 10-month partnership with DC Entertainment continues.'
'It was a thrill to see custom cars based upon my Justice League artwork and sketches revealed at SEMA,' stated Jim Lee, co-publisher of DC Entertainment. 'I have to tip my hat to the teams at West Coast Customs, RIDES and Super Street on their innovative work creating cars that represent iconic characters like Green Lantern, Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – all to benefit a great cause, 'We Can Be Heroes', and I'd like to thank Kia Motors America for supporting 'We Can Be Heroes'.'
