Anyone who thought that a Bentley Bentayga, a Rolls-Royce Cullinan or the sporty Lamborghini Urus are expensive, we would like to teach today a better. Far off the SUV's for the infantry comes the least 2 million euros expensive Karl King the one from the company IAT Automobile Technology Co. financed from China and can easily be upgraded to over four million euros. At the latest then the projectile 2017 presented also has a complete armor. Incidentally, the basis for the Karlmann King is a Ford F-550 heavy duty pickup with ladder frame and two rigid axles, which still carries its 6,8-liter V10 petrol engine. However, this is no longer series but due to an increase in performance is now about 370 to 400 PS afford.

However, the Karlmann King does not want to score with performance, a maximum of 140 km / h is not enough, but with the huge optics. With a weight of over 6 tons and a width of 2,50 m, it has a typical truck format, especially in terms of dimensions. If you order the Karlmann King without the aforementioned armor, you get “only” 4,5 tons of empty weight. If you are looking for a competitor in this segment, there is probably only one Oshkosh JLTV, the Roshel Senator APC, the Devel 6 × 6 or the Dhabiyan 10 × 10 Single piece into consideration. But the Karlmann King looks quite acceptable in view of these monsters. The design is very reminiscent of the DSD Design Golem SUV just everything at least one size larger and more futuristic. Countless edges and beads, high-quality LED headlights and relatively small panes ensure a unique design in the style of a stealth bomber.
more luxury is not possible ...
And unique is also the interior. It's reminiscent of Paris Hilton's signature suite and features a champagne fridge, espresso machine and even a slice. Almost as a matter of course one understands the gold ornaments in different styles and the wasted leather. This is accompanied by a lot of entertainment electronics such as a video system, satellite TV, telephone connection, game console and a sound-rich sound system. By the way, Karlmann King, built near Turin, can drive in temperature ranges between -40 and + 90 degrees Celsius. If we get more information soon there is of course an update for this report.
