The Karlmann King is the world’s most expensive SUV

Reported to cost £1.56 million, the Karlmann King SUV boasts a 6.8-litre V10 and optional bulletproofing
A common complaint among car fans is that all SUVs look the same. But when it comes to the limited run Karlmann King, nothing could be further from the truth. Based on a Ford F-550, the Karlmann King is designed by Chinese company IAT and built by a team in Europe, with the aim of offering a “stealth” vehicle that provides “an unprecedented visual feast”.

Under the bonnet lies a 6.8-litre V10 left over from Ford’s F-550, although this is said to have been fettled to produce something in the region of 395bhp. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, with four-wheel-drive and air suspension front and rear.
