Over the past 10 months, Kia and DC Comics have rolled out seven superhero-themed models. Now, the partnership has revealed its eighth and final vehicle: a 2014 Kia Sorento decorated to showcase the entire Justice League.
There's no mistaking this Sorento as paying homage to the Justice Leage. Emblazened across the hood is the Justice League logo and the entire crew is represented on the body sides – with Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Cyclops, and Aquaman all present. The wild exterior paint job was airbrushed by the team at West Coast Customs with supervision by the comic-creator himself, Jim Lee. There are also radical-looking, black ten-spoke wheels to further gussy up the three-row crossover. Inside, each of the seven headrests has been embroidered with the logo of each Justice League member and the black leather seats each get contrast piping to match the character. Door and console trim pieces boast reproductions of various comic panels from all seven of the characters.
Kia hasn't disclosed if there are any mechanical changes to the Justice League Sorento, but we assume not. The automaker says that the vehicle is fully drivable – that means it is powered by either a 191-hp 2.4-liter I-4 or a 290-hp 3.3-liter V-6 paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The one-off 2014 Kia Sorento will be auctioned off on eBay to help support DC Comics' "We Can Be Heros" campaign to help combat poverty in the Horn of Africa. Also featured in the online auction – which can be found at www.ebay.com/wecanbeheroes -- is a large-scale piece of artwork by Lee featuring Batman's profile in a green, yellow, and black color scheme.
Fans who want to see the Justice League 2014 Kia Sorento can check it out at this year's Comic-Con, going on now in San Diego, California. The 2014 Sorento will be joined by the seven other Justice League Kias, like The Flash Forte Koup, the Batman Optima, the Wonder Woman Sportage, and the Superman Optima Hybrid.
