Η Κia μαζί με το περιοδικό Antenna ανακοίνωσαν ότι θα παρουσιάσουν στη Sema ένα πρωτότυπο Rio εμπνευσμένο από το σερφ. Είναι βαμμένο σε ένα καφέ χρώμα ηλιοβασιλέματος, ξύλινο μπροστά σποιλερ, δύο τεράστιες απολήξεις των εξατμίσεων τοποθετημένες στο κέντρο και χρυσαφί ζάντες. Στο εσωτερικό τοποθετήθηκε κεντρική κονσόλα εμπνευσμένη από τα arcade παιχνίδια της δεκαετίας του ’80, και μια ειδική ξύλινη κατασκευή στο πίσω μέρος που μπορείς να μεταφέρεις παπούτσια, μαγιό κτλ.

Kia Motors Collaborates with Antenna Magazine to Develop Customized Surf- and Skate-Themed Hatchbacks for the 2011 SEMA Show

Following the official launch of the all-new and completely redesigned 2012 Rio 5-door, Kia has once again teamed up with Antenna magazine for this year’s SEMA Show to create a completely one-of-a-kind retro ride aimed at totally radical surfing enthusiasts.

As one of six sports-themed vehicles that Kia Motors will debut on November 1 at SEMA, Antenna took the all-new 2012 Rio 5-door and turned it into a surfer’s dream, with a sunset-metallic golden-brown paint, front splitter made of wood to match an old school surfboard and striking gold wheels. The rear console of the Rio 5-door also has been completely modified to accommodate a retro gaming console that plays 80’s-style arcade games and music, and shelves for sandals and swimsuits.

Just recently on sale in the U.S. this month, the all-new Rio 5-door is Kia’s latest vehicle to enter the marketplace in the sub-compact category and features class-leading fuel economy at 30/40 miles per gallon (mpg) (city/highway) along with an optional Idle Stop-and-Go (ISG) system that shuts off the 1.6-liter engine when it comes to a stop: an industry first in the non-hybrid and non-luxury segments.

Kia will unveil the Antenna-built Rio 5-door, and five additional vehicles developed with high-profile partners, during its SEMA Show press conference onTuesday, November 1 at 9:30 a.m.
