Batman is America’s favorite superhero, and the Kia Optima is America’s favorite mid-size sedan (or one of them, anyway), so it only makes sense that these two flavors would come together at some point.

And that moment has finally come, as Kia, DC Comics, and RIDES Magazine have collaborated to make the one-off Batman Optima SX a reality.

It’s all part of a fundraising effort to benefit DC Entertainment’s ‘We Can Be Heroes’ charity campaign, which will feature seven more DC superhero themed cars, in addition to the Batman Optima SX.   Helping with the design of the Batman Optima SX was legendary comic artist Jim Lee, which helps explain why it looks so cool.
