Green Lantern-inspired Soul

2013 Kia Green Lantern-Inspired Soul
Based on the intergalactic peacekeeper known as Green Lantern, the Super Street magazine's wide-body Soul shines with a green and black two-tone exterior paint scheme complete with green mirror-chrome tint on the windows. Super Street's build team lowered the Soul to improve its stance and applied widened wheel wells with one-off 18 x 10.5-inch deep-dish wheels. Traditionally a four-door vehicle, the Soul's back doors have been welded shut to streamline its appearance. Blacked out headlights feature projector beams that glow green. Customized Green Lantern-logo fog lights in the widened front fascia, and green LED lighting further enhance the overall appearance of the Soul – this machine is ready for anything, just like Green Lantern. 2013 Kia Green Lantern-Inspired Soul
A custom rear cargo compartment houses the Green Lantern power battery with his signature lantern logo etched into a clear panel displaying the superhero's oath lit by LEDs. The rear deck also holds a video monitor to display the 'We Can Be Heroes' promotional video. Úp front, the Soul's steering wheel and front seats were reupholstered with green and black leather and includes the Green Lantern logo stitched into the seat backs. Other interior touches include various dash pieces painted in the green and black scheme.

• 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'.'
