This video contains a short preview of the Interior & Exterior of the Karlmann King. This review was made during the visit of the Dubai Motor show 2017.
Karlmann King mega SUV debuts on the Beijing Auto Show The absolutely mental Karlmann King mega SUV debuted on the Beijing Auto Show, looking mightily impressive in matte black with stealth-style angular surfaces and bright white lights. The Karlmann King was designed by IAT Design for Unique Club, which will build ten examples and sell them for 12 million yuan each, and that exchanges to a steep1.85 million USD.The Karlmann King logo, in gold. IAT Automobile Technology (web) is a Beijing-based design and engineering company. Unique Club is a company that normally modifies Ford and Chevrolet vans for the Chinese market, adding more gold, tea pots, karaoke sets, and whatnot more. The Karlmann King is their first self-developed ‘car’. It is based on the Ford F-450 Super Duty, a popular platform in China, and widely used for everything from anti-riot vehicles to wedding-limousines to… this thing. Power comes from the 6.8 liter ‘Triton’ V10 engine, good for 362hp and 620nm. The Karlmann King will need all that power because the new body is made entirely out of old fashioned steel.The interior is a work of art, dressed up with shiploads of alcantara, gold threat, gold colored panels, and dark decorated wood.The best however is in the back, with a high end karaoke system consisting of a 3D flat screen, a 20-speaker surround sound system, and disco-lights.There are only seats for two, but these are seats for kings. Fortune magazine in the magazine bag, naturally. The controls for the karaoke set are on the left side of the left seat, and include a rather cheap looking typical-Chinese DVD player. Isn’t that for poor people..? The compartment between the seats houses two sterilized tea cups. And there is booze too:A fridge with two bottles of champagne and four glasses. But there are only two seats. Babes sit on the floor, we bet.The ceiling with a Rolls-Royce style milky way and more dark decorated wood.That girl was about 1.80 meters tall. The Karlmann King dwarfs her.Launching this in a time when even the most otherworldly Chinese car companies are going green and electric takes a lot of guts, and we therefore highly appreciate the effort. It looks brilliant two, but I am not so sure about the wheels. They are a tad too tractor.The name has wuzzy story. It refers to a certain ‘King Karlmann‘, born in 741 and one of the many rulers of semi-independent states in the much larger German Carolinian Empire (800-924), note German flag below the name. In China the last name always comes first, and the unknown German-loving genius who came up with all this thus changed King Karlmann to Karlmann King, not realizing ‘King’ was a title, and not a name. I tried to explain this problem to staff on the booth, but they didn’t seem to care (!).

Karlmann King: The world's most expensive SUV is a Ford F550 at heart Only in a world of extreme inequality is it possible to build things of enormous beauty and magnificence. Think of the architecture we'd have missed out on if it wasn't for the kings and pharaohs of old. Think of the music and the majestic spaces we'd never have if the Catholic church wasn't loaded to the teeth. Think of what humanity loses if the Medici family didn't have offensively large piles of dosh to throw at humble painters and sculptors. Flatten the hierarchy, scream the modern marxists. What, do you wish to tear down the soul-elevating magnificence of the achievements of inequality, and replace them with the crushing brutality of Communist concrete and marching songs? It is rampant inequality that brings us today's subject, as well. The most expensive SUV in the world. And all its performance figures pale into insignificance beside the one number that counts. 2.2 million. That's how many U.S. dollars you'll need to light on fire to buy the Karlmann King. And if the achievements of the old world that delight us today stand tall on their extraordinary levels of accomplishment, technical mastery and sheer, awesome beauty, the Karlmann King stands even taller on a pedestal of furious, flesh-tearing onanism. Under the skin, it's a Ford F550 commercial cab chassis, complete with a lightly warmed up version of the standard 6.8-liter V10 engine that boosts it up to 398 horsepower. Which would be a moderately decent amount of poke if it didn't have to drag either 4,500 or 6,000 kilograms around (that's 9920 or 13,230 pounds) depending on whether it's been bulletproofed or not. Top speed is thus a paltry 87 mph (140 km/h), so you'd better stay out of the fast lane in certain jurisdictions. But who cares? You and your grubby sacks of money won't be in the driver's seat anyway. You'll be in the back, tooling about with the Playstation or the satellite TV, popping overpriced champagne out of the built-in fridge and watching the electric armrests go up and down as you fiddle with the many touch-screen options at your disposal. The interior decor has to be seen to be believed. Available in a bunch of different color schemes, it's best described as looking like the cabin of a galactic Sheikh's personal space ship, complete with a luminous night sky design on the ceiling and color-matched LED lighting throughout. An interior so finely detailed and luxurious makes a stark contrast to what the outside world sees. The Karlmann team claims it was attempting to make a road-going stealth bomber. What they actually achieved is a brutal, angular Bat-SUV looking thing of awkward and ungainly proportions. It's as if the owner is selfishly hoarding all the nice stuff for himself on the inside, and punishing the peasants for their crime of being born poor by making them look at the exterior. Real stealthy, team. Only 12 will be made – hopefully because there's only 12 fools in the world rich enough to throw two and a bit mil at a 40 grand Ford with 2.16 million dollars worth of rank narcissism piled on top of it.

According to statistics, most drivers change their car once every six years, which is a pretty long period of time. To take the best out of your car in those six years, to save money and to avoid constant repairing, you’d better avoid ten mistakes many of us make when buying a car. One day you’ll probably decide to sell your car. That’s why you have to consider some important features. According to Paint supplier PPG Industries, white is the most popular car color in the US with 35 percent of all sold vehicles. It is followed by black with 17 percent, and silver and gray that both got a 12 percent popularity. In case you want to purchase some good old German luxury brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz, you have to be prepared to pay around $17,800 and $12,900 for ten years of maintenance accordingly. US popular brand Cadillac comes next with an average $12,500 maintenance cost for the same period of time. Additional airbags, a passenger sensing system that can tell the size of the person in the seat and save smaller children in case of a crash, auto-dimming mirrors to reduce the glare coming from headlights at night, head restraints and ABS are some of the things you don’t want to save money at. Make a check-list of features you need to check and think of where you’ll be driving your new vehicle. Try driving on the highway and park in uncomfortable conditions if that’s what you know you’ll have to do in the future. Examine everything to help yourself make the right decision. Don’t be afraid to miss “the deal of a lifetime.” You must have noticed those come up now and then, so you shouldn’t let them pressure you into making a wrong financial decision that will affect your budget for years. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS You don’t think about resale value. 0:32 Car maintenance can be expensive. 1:46 You pay for optional items. 2:50 You buy a brand new car. 3:33 You buy a car that is too big or too small. 4:03 You can’t choose between car’s prestige and technical characteristics. 4:34 You don’t examine the car. 5:19 You miss advantageous offers and discounts. 6:08 You don’t try to lower the price. 6:30 You’re in a hurry. 6:51 SUMMARY -First, the car brand matters: there are brands that are more or less popular among drivers. Second, you need to think about the vehicle specifications and the engine. Third, don’t forget about its color. -Think of how much of your family budget car maintenance can make, and decide if you want to spend that much on your vehicle after you’ve purchased it. -Some drivers don’t smoke inside their cars. In this case, they don’t need an ashtray. An additional corrosion treatment is useless as well because cars already have an anti-corrosion treatment. -The best choice is a car model that is no more than three years old and already well-known. -Try to predict how many times you’re going to travel by car, how many passengers will be there, and so on. -A premium class car will give you better safety, high performance and increased comfort their manufacturers guarantee. -Gather as much information as possible at reliable websites and among your friends, consult an independent specialist, and test drive your chosen car. -The best time to buy a car starts in December and reaches its peak in March. -Try to call or send emails to different dealerships saying you have a better offer and asking if they can beat it. -Spend enough time to gather information, consulting specialists, and weighing the pros and cons.
