Seoul – Tennis superstar and Kia global ambassador, Rafael Nadal, lifted the cover off the automaker's latest ‘X-Car’ in Melbourne, Australia, during the ceremony for the Australian Open 2016.

The one-of-a-kind Sportage CUV was created in collaboration with Twentieth Century Fox and modelled after the popular X-Men character, Mystique.

According to Kia: "Boasting a unique design with special textured ‘tone-on-tone’ matte and gloss blue paint finish, racing wheels and tires along with red and yellow bodywork highlights, the KIA X-Car and Rafael Nadal combine powers in an online video released ahead of this year’s Australian Open."

The Sportage-based Kia X-Car is the company’s second show car project in collaboration with Fox, following the Wolverine-inspired Sorento that was shown at the Australian Open 2015.

The ceremony also featured the handover of 110 official courtesy vehicles to the Australian Open Organising Committee.
