News The King on four wheels?

The King on four wheels?

Possibly. It certainly is the king of a few things, namely price. The Karlmann King SUV is the most expensive “production” SUV in the world. Base price? $2 million. With options? Just shy of $4 million, or $3.8 million to be more price.

So, what is this toy for the extremely wealthy? It’s a dressed-up Ford F-550 chassis cab. That’s dumbing it down a lot but know that the King is powered by a massaged 6.8-liter V10 but even with up to nearly 400 horsepower, said Kin’s top speed is set at 140 km/h. How’s that possible? The King is a heavy one, tipping the scale between 4,500 and 6,000 kg. Imagine the fuel consumption…

Only oil tycoons can afford this truck anyhow and they expect the best. While the exterior shell is matte black, made out of carbon fibre with steel or bulletproof materials, the cabin is woven together from unicorn mane hairs. The level of luxury matches everything the Burj Khalifa stands for.

Only 12 will be built by a secret team based somewhere in Europe so we’re likely never going to see one.
