2016 Kia Optima Inspired by Florida Highway

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]1A Optima takes inspiration from the iconic Florida A1A highway by letting the sunshine in and taking the all-new 2016 Optima in a new direction. With sliced top, shortened windshield and room for four, new Optima’s  reinforced steel tubes have been discretely hidden within the body so that the vehicle retains a rigid structure.

Its back doors swing open on rear-mounted hinges, adding a touch of whimsy and fun while complementing the roadster style.

A gleaming set of 20-in. wheels are bolted to a Ksport coilover suspension, which dramatically lowers ride height.

Soft butter-cream leather bucket seats up front and custom double buckets in back are separated by extended armrests and a custom center console. It is powered by a 245-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, combined with a high-performance exhaust.

A1A Optima is one of four new custom vehicles Kia Motors American plans to unveil at a press conference Tuesday (3rd November 2015).
