Even superheroes are on a budget nowadays

KIA and DC Comics have announced a Justice League branded series of vehicles, where main members of the JLA group will each be getting their own.

The first in line turned out to Batman and he’ll be getting his own Optima SX Limited. The car boasts matte black finish with piano black Batman logos.

Apparently, the Budgetbatmobile boasts lowered suspension and what the company describes as muscular ground effects kit. The card has Ksport performance brakes and custom 20’’ wheels. KIA strapped the card with a performance exhaust system as well.

As for the eye-candy, there’s plenty of it, ranging from LED based accents to HID headlights, which come with the bat-signal inside. The batwing-shaped grill alone took 40 hours to create. The interior is black leather and suede while the Bat Suit and cowl can be found in the trunk.

The plan is to put the vehicle up for auction and donate the cash to a charity called We Can Be Heroes. The rest of the JLA

This vehicle will eventually be auctioned off with the proceeds going to a charity called We Can Be Heroes. With Batman taken care of, this leaves Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg.
