Gliding onto Kia showroom floors everywhere, bringing its funky styling, a cult following and a $20,000 price tag that includes a smooth 4 speed automatic transmission, the Soul Hamstar Special Edition continues to turn heads the same way it did when it landed at the 2010 SEMA show.

The is the sixth trip down Special Edition lane for the Kia Soul Hamstar. Funky and the Kia Soul are synonymous, and this 2011 Special Edition is no exception.

This tricked out little beauty has millions of Youtube views for its commercials that feature cars, music and six foot tall hamsters. It even has its own hamster clothing line.

The 2011 Kia Soul Hamstar Special Edition lives up to its pop culture filled predecessors. This Molten Red head-turner has black matte stripes along the sides and sports a black hamster logo on the hood.

More exterior style features include a power sun roof, some fog lights, a sporty spoiler and bumpers that match the color of the car’s body. The black fender vents and fuel cover are nice accents as well. It rides on 18-inch black alloy-wheels.

Looks aren’t everything, except when it comes to cars, but fear not. The Special Edition is sexy on the inside as well.

Unique, custom hamster floor mats provide a stylish look, while leather trimmed seats ensure comfort while cruising. The front seats are heated for extra help on chilly days.

The 2011 Special Edition features Smart Key push button starts, a leather wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, and also automatic climate control to keep you looking and feeling cool.

Music is a large part of the hamster scene, and the 2011 Hamstar Special Edition pays special attention to it. It sports an Audio Upgrade Package that has a subwoofer, a center speaker, and a 315 watt external amplifier that really gets this box bouncing. Speaker lights that pulse to keep time with the music are a great added touch.

In a world of cars that sometimes seem like the same old thing, the Soul Hamstar Special Edition brings style, funk, and fun to the dance. Fresh ideas combined with thoughtful designs make for a desirable package. The Special Edition won’t last forever as supplies are limited.

The 2011 Kia Hamstar Soul starts at $20.990 – including a $695 destination charge – which makes it most expensive model in the 2011 Soul crossover lineup.

    Just got my new Hamstar and LOVE IT! So fun to drive, love all the upgraded features, very sporty. Just wondering how many exactly were made of this model? None have so far come to our city-had to go almost 200 miles south to get it. Also, is it supposed to come with the Ipod connectiviy cord?

    Per KIA – My Ingnition was 1900 produced. Not sure of the manual/auto split. would expect similar numbers for Hamstar

    I went into my Kia dealership last week with the intensions of refinancing my 2010 Soul Sport. I absolutely loved it, but due to poor credit history, was given a whopping 16.2% at the time. In the year, I had worked feverishly and got my credit rating improved…so much so, for the same monthly payments, I was put into my new 2011 Hamstar, AND got Gap Plus and 3 yrs maintenance plan! While I miss my previous Soul (put a lot of extras on her like all the chrome trims and a painted to match hoodscoop) I am loving my Hamstar. I’m not a fan of the leather interior, or the heated seats (I live in Miami) but the handling is better. I preferred the longed speakers on the Sport; they were brighter, albeit only red lights. I love the push button start and the auto a/c and the black rim…omg! Once I get over feeling like a trader for getting rid of my first baby, I’m sure I’m gonna love this more than life itself! Lol
