The Superman KIA Optima Hybrid Justice league Buildup

It’s all in the Details

Often times when we see show cars as finished products with their shiny paint, perfect body lines, intricate graphics schemes and much more, it's hard to really appreciate how much time and effort has gone into building them.

From the outside the KIA Optima being built with the Superman theme, looks incredibly slick with subtle design cues that show off a different Optima than its stock predecessor. To the untrained eye, one could think this Optima was just painted and had some slick vinyl applied to make it what it is but that's furthest from the truth!

Countless hours have been spent shaping the exterior of this car so that it has a wider stance. Attention to detail is key here because if the bodywork is sloppy it'll be easy to pick up once the car is painted.

That's why Mike Vu and his team over at MV Designz spend the time and put in the extra effort to ensure everything is done flawlessly from the beginning.

Once the body work is completed, the first round of paint happens and shortly after that the painstaking job of airbrushing subtle graphic cues takes place. More hours then you can imagine are spent perfecting the exterior graphics scheme on this car!

Check in with us next time to see how the final touches are added and what the Superman themed KIA Optima lookslike.
