The Kia Soul Hamsters are still on a roll with the arrival of the special-edition 2011 Hamstar Soul.

This is the sixth special edition of the funky urban passenger line. The Soul was first seen as a concept at the 2010 SEMA Show.

The Kia Soul Hamsters rolled into pop culture in staring in music-filled commercials. Since then, those commercials have been viewed on YouTube more than 7 million times. And the Hamstar clothing line has been launched.

The Hamstar Soul special edition features off-black matte finish stripes on the vehicle's sides and a black star graphic with the signature Hamstar script logo on the hood.

Additional exterior extras feature body-colored bumpers with a rear bumper applique, power sun-roof, fog lights, a rear sport spoiler, black fender vents with turn signal indicator and a matte black alloy fuel door. The Hamstar Soul rides on black 18-inch alloy wheels.

The features continue in the cabin with black leather-trimmed seats with heated front seats, Hamstar floor mats, push button start with smart key, automatic climate control and leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

Music is a big part of the Hamstar scene, so the Hamstar Soul includes an audio upgrade package with a center speaker, subwoofer, 315-watt external amplifier and speaker lights that pulse to the beat.

The Hamstar Soul has a MSRP of $20,295.
