The special Sedona stays true to the “Day at the Races” theme by boasting the same distinctive Kinetic Motorsports Red exterior paint and white vinyl graphics worn by the championship-winning Kia Racing Optimas. White 20-inch wheels add some more visual flair, but what makes this Sedona truly special is the custom-built kart rack on top of the minivan, which has a CRG Bambino kart and Fiamma F35 Pro Awning strapped to it. Matching the Sedona with the same color scheme, a custom-built aluminum trailer painted in red and sporting 18-inch powder-coated white wheels carries a CRG Road Rebel shifter kart.
While the concept will be the only go-kart-hauling machine displayed at Kia’s booth, it won’t be the only Sedona minivan. Another Sedona has been transformed into a mobile bar. The automaker paired with a Southern California-based brewery for this creation, which appears to have a built-in countertop that folds out. A Soul EV that has been made into an ice cream truck will also be on display.
We’ll know more about the go-kart concept and the other two show cars closer to their reveal at the 2014 SEMA Show, which begins next week.
