SEMA 2011: Kia Rio Antenna Concept Holds Shoes and Spins Records

The surfing-inspired Kia Rio Antenna Concept will make its debut next week at the SEMA Show in Vegas.

Kia has partnered up with Antenna magazine to create their 2012 Kia Rio Concept that will make its debut at the SEMA Show next week. Dubbed the Antenna, the surfing-inspired concept sports a bespoke sunset brown paint job, nifty wooden front spoiler and an exhaust that features two big center-mounted tailpipes. It sits on a set of gold painted wheels that creates a subtle contrast with the exterior's brown paint.

The Antenna Concept has several interesting accoutrements on the interior that the Korean company hopes set this particular Rio far apart from any that has come before it. A retro '80s gaming console is fitted while a clothes rack will willingly hold your shoes and swimsuits. A vinyl record player continues the retro theme, and where a 'surfing-inspired' car would usually come with a roof rack for your boards, this one peculiarly does not. The Kia Rio Antenna Concept will make its debut on November 1st at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This is one of six sports-themed vehicles the South Korean automaker plans to unveil at the auto show.
