X-Men Kia Sportage revealed

The X-Men Kia Sportage has been revealed ahead of its debut at the Australian Open tennis championship in January 2016.

BUILT TO PROMOTE Kia’s sponsorship of the Australian Open tennis championship, the Kia Sportage X-Men will also be wheeled out to promote the release of the new X-Men: Apocalypse film. It continues Kia’s relationship with the X-Men franchise and is the second show car the brand has produced to promote the movie.

Inspired by X-Men character Mystique, “the second-generation Kia X-Car mimics the appearance and powers of the famous shape-shifter,” Kia said. And it’s released a video showing the Sportage “shapeshifting into custom-designed bodywork with special textured ‘tone-on-tone’ matte and gloss blue paint finish, racing wheels and tires along with red and yellow bodywork highlights”.

The X-Men Sportage will be on display at the Australian Open 2016 at Melbourne Park throughout the tournament (January 18-31) before making appearances at various international motor shows and fan events in the run up to the film’s premiere in May 2016.

The new Sportage is being launched locally in January and Practical Motoring will be attending the launch. Stay tuned.
