Kia Rio Goes Surfing at SEMA

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Well, not literally. But Kia and Antenna magazine have teamed up to present this surf-themed Rio at the 2011 SEMA show.

The brown Rio seems to have one of the worst body kits ever fitted on any car ever, with gold wheels which are terrible. But it’s not about the looks, it is about surfin’!

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.

Lambo Style Doors are generally lame on every other car than Lamborghini, and it looks doubly lame on a cheap and crappy car!

Check this Kia Pro Ceed. And check out those LSDs, honestly who in their right mind would think this is cool.

And they have made it even worse by that stupid paint job and ugly bodykit. The wheels are alright but again on a car such as Pro Ceed, that’s just pathetic.

I know budget tuning is a big trend, but to be honest it’s just not good!

So it comes with new add-on parts for the front and rear bumpers like the ones you get on the bigger crossover vehicles. They don’t have any good use, neither they’re very pretty, but there they are!

Other features of the exterior include black 18-inch “Sports Star” design wheels and and lots of “Edition 001” sticker. Upon request they can also re-trim the interior with black and red leather.
