If you thought the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan was instantly going to become the world’s most luxurious SUV, you probably never heard of, the Karlmann King.
Designed by Chinese company IAT, the King is meant to offer you an exclusive experience unlike any other, which is why it would cost you $2 million to buy one in base form, or some $3.8 million if you go nuts with the customization options, which include armored bodywork.
While it may take after stealth fighters, there really isn’t anything stealthy about this massive SUV. In fact, it’s so big, they had to use a Ford F-550 in order to lay the groundwork – this includes the Ford’s 6.8-liter V10 engine, although it’s said to have been massaged to produce some 400 HP.
Even with all that muscle, the most you’ll be doing in this truck is 87 mph (140 km/h), which is slow even by Back to the Future standards. Of course, the fact that it’s 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) wide and weighs six tonnes (13,227 lbs) is what contributes to its top speed being so limited.
It is inside however where the King really comes to life, with its ambient lighting, retractable widescreen TV, refrigerator, Nespresso machine and electrically operated pop-out tables. It’s beyond any other SUV we can think of, and few luxury limos look anywhere close to this “rich” on the inside, unless they’ve also been tuned.
According to Fox, buyers can also opt for a six-seat, six-door version, although you’ll need to move quickly since IAT will only build nine total units.
