Powerful. Gifted. Ready for action.

These are just a few characteristics that describe 14-time Grandslam champion Rafael Nadal. But so too is Kia's latest version of the Sportage, which is being branded as the X-Car to coincide with the brand's marketing partnership with the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse.

Still, him joining forces with Professor X and the X-Men against Apocalypse as suggested by the ad is something special should it happen.

Below are the X-Cars with design inspiration from characters in the film series:
