At the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show , Kia unveiled its new, rear-wheel-drive flagship sedan that will go on sale next year. While we have no prices on the K900 just yet, rumors point toward the new sedan coming in around $70k, and will target the BMW 7 Series and models like it.
The new K900 will be built on the same platform as the Hyundai Equus , from which it will borrow the powerful, 5.0-liter, V-8 engine that hooks up to an eight-speed transmission with three driving modes: Eco, Normal and Sport.
The K900 will be put on sale in early 2014 — just in time to celebrate Kia’s 20th anniversary in the U.S. market. According to the company, the K900 "is the next logical progression for Kia. It demonstrates what Kia is capable of and will help redefine what the Kia brand stands for."
