Kia has unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Show five unique Soul concepts inspired by music. The first concept is named Amped Soul and according to Korean manufacturer it is a "full size boom box on wheels". 

The Amped Soul concept features JBL speakers and four Infinity subwoofers. The unique model also has a special paint color, new 22 inch Forgiato wheels wrapped in Hankook tires. 

"To make room for the club-sized stereo, the passenger side B-pillar has been removed. All the world’s a stage when riding in the Amped Soul; a portable platform invites musician’s ready to plug in and perform for their fans", was said in the official press release.

The second concept unveiled at SEMA Show is dubbed Vans Warped Tour Soul and instead of normal body panels it feature fiberglass ones with 8 inch Infinity speakers. There is also an LED ambient lighting and a 50 inch television. 

"The Vans Warped Tour is about music, friends and food. To that end, this Soul has been outfitted with a slide-out rear barbeque for the full music-inspired tailgating experience. And a specially designed hood ornament pays homage to the iconic shoe company that serves as the namesake of the Warped Tour. With 20-inch wheels outfitted with performance low-profile tires and vibrant LED ambient lighting, this Kia Soul is made to take music lovers on a rockin’ ride they’ll never forget", said Kia officials.

The third concept revealed in Los Angeles is the DJ Booth Soul. It features no roof and a lot of Pioneer stuff. According to Kia, this version was specially developed for the DJs. 

"The roof was removed to give the DJ the ability to rise up and stand on a custom diamond-plated stage—which replaced the rear seats—and start spinning on the pro-grade Pioneer CDJs and mixer. Influenced by both EDM and hip-hop, this Soul is painted an eye-catching purple with turquoise accents", added Korean officials.

The fourth unique model unveiled at 2013 SEMA Show is dubbed Music Memorabilia Soul. Inside the cabin it features a signed Slash guitar, a Jimi Hendrix gold album and a signed John Legend microphone. 

"As a nod to industry icons, this Soul was influenced by platinum and gold records: The Soul’s exterior received PPG waterborne platinum silver, gold exhaust tips and anodized 20-inch gold HRE 935s. The interior received gold diamond stitching and painted trim that highlights the custom black suede and leather interior. Ark Performance springs and Nitto Invo tires make sure the Soul gives an award-winning performance at every appearance", is said in the official press release. 

Last but not the least is the Voice Soul. As you probably anticipated, the concept was heavily inspired by the TV show. Inside the cockpit are four replicated coach chairs while the "I Want You" logo can be controlled with a press of a button.
