Teaser sketch of Kia’s new luxury car revealed in South Korea
Kia’s foray to the luxury-car market took a step forward when the brand revealed a sketch of the ‘K9’ at a design conference in its homeland of South Korea last week.
Unveiled by the company’s chief designer Peter Schreyer – the same man behind Audi’s enormously-successful Audi TT – the ‘K9’ is expected to be Kia’s entry to the world of luxury sedans where it is expected to go up against highly-touted cars like the 2010 BMW 7-Series and the 2011 Audi A8.
While there are no concrete details about the car except for the little sketch that was revealed, there are rumors that the ‘K9’ – the car’s real name has yet to be revealed – is going to have a V8 engine and an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Like we said, information has so far been scarce, but as soon as any developments surrounding this car comes out, we’ll be sure to keep everyone updated.
