The Kia Optima Hybrid has undergone a basketball-inspired makeover by West Coast Customs at the New York motor show.

The blinged up special is finished in a special orange and black paint job that's meant to resemble a basketball. It also sports a unique grille and 20in matte black alloys.

The leather interior boasts a pair of Xbox 360 games consoles and flat screen TV screens for rear passengers.

Other features include a pop-up basketball hoop that comes out of the boot, along with hardwood flooring and a backboard.

I am NOT biased - but I will admit I am looking forwards to driving one of these very soon because I really do like a great deal about this car. Hopefully they have got the suspension and settings right because this is quite a big car and a lot of attention will have been needed. Excited for a change!
