High Performance Kia K900 To Be Launched At SEMA
Those who doubted Kia’s ability to deliver a luxury premium sedan have been silenced by the 2015 K900.
Visitors to the SEMA show in Las Vegas want to see a little more, though, which is why the Koreans will have a high-performance version of the Kia K900 on display.
The original model is conservative by nature, but the SEMA version is a model with some real attitude on display.
The new body kit has a number of great features, such as a wider intake, a new front bumper, and a front lip spoiler.
It also boasts cool red brake calipers, 21-inch gloss black wheels, carbon fiber inserts, black chrome trim, and a truly stunning gray exterior paint job.
There is no real word on what type of upgrades this model will have over the street version of the K900, but it’s pretty safe to say that an extra jolt of power under the hood will present.
The engine featured on the original K900 has plenty of power in its own right, getting 420 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque from its 5.0-liter V-8 engine.
Those numbers are great, but more is expected from SEMA enthusiasts.
If you are interested in seeing more about the High-Performance 2015 Kia K900, take a look at the video below.
You’ll get a quick glimpse of the SEMA model, and the transformation from street model to SEMA-ready concept.
When you hear the engine roar, you’ll get the point that this is a model with an upgraded exhaust system and potentially the addition of forced induction.
We will tell you more once the SEMA show kicks off in Las Vegas starting on November 4.
