The Caped Crusader gets to drive the coolest-of-cool Batmobiles, but what does the Man of Steel get? A Yaris.

The Toyota Yairs Superman Limited Edition comes only in Superman blue, natch. And you can tell it's special from all them snazzy decals: they're on the hood, the sides and on the back – big S shields and a flying Superman sticker. Inside, the comic book dream continues with blue seats and S-shields on the steering wheel, floor mats, handbrake, shifter and even on the tissue box.

If you're retching, you can take comfort, and if you're drooling, you can take a flight (and another appointment with your shrink): this bad boy is for sale only in Indonesia, thankfully, for a thousand-dollar premium over a Clark Kent-normal Yaris. (Think, though: a thousand bucks could buy you a lot of Superman comics.)

What we want to know is what eight-year-old boy won the design contest that brought this to fruition.

      Nothing wrong with having a little fun with your car. No stranger than a 4x4 that rquires a 6' ladder to enter or a daily driver with a top speed in excess of 100 miles per hour, or a stero system that harms your hearing, or a badge on the exterior of your calls that tells other drivers how big your engine is....

      Looks nerdy, maybe they shoulda made it the Clark Kent edition.

      This would be lame if it was a toy Yaris, nevermind a real one.
      • 8 Years Ago

      • 8 Years Ago

      It's a really poor answer to a question that will never be asked: What would Superman drive?
      • 8 Years Ago
      Hopefully you can remove the stikers if your lame enough to buy this "special edition" in the first place.
      • 8 Years Ago
      You got to really like superman to go for this.
      • 8 Years Ago
      looks like too much kryptonite killed superman, more like it than what they are claiming
      • 8 Years Ago

      #3 Hey great timing Toyota!!
      I live in Indonesia, actually this car was released month before the superman returns hit the big screen.. so this is an old news in Indonesia, it was like 5-6 month ago... Why does Autoblog post this article just now?

      Btw, I agree with you guys, when Toyota Indonesia release this Yaris Superman, I can't understand what's the point of this product... Toyota Officials in Indonesia sure had a bad taste of cars...
