Taking inspiration from the wild GT Concept, Kia has revealed the initial photos of its very first rear-drive luxury sedan.

Based on the same platform that underpins both the Hyundai Genesis and Equus, the car will be called the K9, but is expected to receive a different name for markets outside its native Korea.

No details have been provided on powertrains, although looking at the Genesis and Equus models provides plenty of info. As a possible base engine is the 3.8-liter V6 makign anywhere from 333 to 350 hp. As for V8 engine options, Hyundai has a 385 hp 4.6-liter V8 as well as a new 429 hp 5.0-liter version introduced in the Genesis R-Spec.

Look for details to be announced when the car makes it world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th.

    What a car.  I had the pleasure to see and go over this car when I was invited to do a survey for it.  All I can say is WOW.  The size of a 7 series BMW and an interior unlike any car I have been in.
