Known as 'The man of Steel', Superman has been transformed into 'Wheels of Steel" thanks to KIA's tribute version of its Optima Hybrid unveiled at this week's Chicago Auto Show.

The one-off car is a continuation of a 10-month, eight vehicle partnership between Kia and DC Entertainment based on the characters that make up the Justice League – Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.

An eighth and final vehicle will be an amalgamation of all seven Super Heroes in one.

The Optima has been widened with custom fenders, enhancing its muscular look, and features a push-button, height adjustable suspension.
