DSN’s Must Have Whip: The Aquaman Kia Rio

As soon as dollars start falling from the sky I will be ordering one of these for everyone in the DSN superteam.

The Aquaman Rio hatch, built by West Coast Customs, features a fishy-looking exterior with a gold and green paint job, styled with scales to look like Aquaman’s outfit. The Rio’s exterior is finished off with a custom grille and massive on a Rio 20-inch wheels. Inside, West Coast Customs continued the Aquaman theme with green leather and yellow accents. The headliner was replaced with green suede, and the trunk features an underwater scene filled with Aquaman comics.

  1. Dr. M,

    I am thoroughly impressed that you know what the term whip means. I am convinced that you possible hold more street credibility than my advisor. This is substantial in the science/ecology world. Kudos!
