Kia lineup for 2011 SEMA is a bit disappointing to be honest. Apart from the fact that all works are rubbish, there is not a Koup in it.

This year Kia went for an outrageous, sports-inspired theme, getting ideas from basketball, women’s golf, motor sports using partners such as West Coast Customs, Antenna, as well as GoGoGear.com and Kia’s U.S. racing partner, Kinetic Motorsports.

Most of the car’s are fitted with Xboxs and big TVs inside as part of the entertainment package.

In their lineup we have the “Slam Dunk” Blake Griffin Optima Hybrid withbasketball-like custom orange paint scheme, which is accentuated by 20-inch matt black wheels and Griffin’s personal logo on the bonnet.

The “Hole-In-One” Michelle Wie Soul built by West Coast Customs features “So Blue” exterior paint scheme and five-spoke 20-inch wheels and comes with Nike golf bags!

“Retro Surf” Rio 5-Door as we featured before, is designed for the surfer boy and has modified suspension set-up for sportier handling, and the aggressive exterior stance is accentuated by eye-grabbing 17-inch three-piece gold wheels, a stunning sunset-metallic golden-brown paint scheme, a custom body kit with a front splitter made of wood to match the surfboard on the roof.

“Hat Trick” Forte 5-Door is just plain hideous and comes with ice-metallic grey exterior paint, 19-inch blue alloy wheels, a custom body kit and Forte Koup front bumper with carbon fibre accents and LED “hockey stick” fog lights, a quad-tipped exhaust, carbon fibre roof material and a lowered suspension.

Rio 5-Door B-Spec Racer is a race car and will compete against models like the Mazda 2, Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta and others in a range of events organized by various motor sports sanctioning bodies, including World Challenge, GRAND-AM, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and National Auto Sport Association (NASA).

And finally the USTCC Optima Hybrid Pace Car, featuringcustom vinyl graphics, color scheme and array of lighting, including LED auxiliary lights and HID headlights, strobe lights and LED light bar on the roof, ready to pace the hell out of United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC).
