Yesterday DC Comics unveiled four more of their [eight] one of a kind Justice League 'We Can Be Heroes' collaborations with Kia Motors at SEMA 2012 in Las Vegas. The combined fleet of superhero inspired rides are intended to aid Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya in combating the worst drought they've exerienced in 60yrs. Still unseen are the Superman, Wonder Woman and Team cars which are set to be showcased at auto shows and cons in coming months. But for now the public can behold the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg and Aquaman Kias joining the Batman Optima SX Limited that debuted two weeks ago in New York. All eight machines will feature original art by Jim Lee and are destined for auction on behalf of WeCanBeHeroes.org. Kia will additionally raise awareness for the charitable campaign via customized “We Can Be Heroes” license plates, signage, collateral materials and in-vehicle video displays.

Excerpted from the official Press Release: (viewable in its detailed entirety here)

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’.”

the Flash car is pretty cool and I love that the Aquaman car has fins.
However, Liefeld is an enigma wrapped in a pouch-filled, muscular, footless conundrum.

I like the Flash car also, but as far as resale value and something that I wouldn't be embarrassed still driving 5 years from now, I'd go with Cyborg or Batman 8)
