Kia has just revealed the first photos of the Amanti’s successor. Based on the KND-5 Concept, this new full-sized sedan will be called the K7 in Korean and sold as the Cadenza elsewhere. The new car gets a complete redesign with Kia’s new corporate front fascia and an overall look that is more luxurious than the imitation-Jaguar design of the old Amanti.

There is no official word on other details but it has been rumored that the Amanti-successor will be based on the rear-drive Hyundai Genesis platform. If that is the case, we can expect the 290-hp 3.8-liter V8 to be offered, with a slight chance that the 375-hp 4.6-liter V8 could make an appearance.

The car will officially debut at the Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Dubai international auto shows at the end of 2009 and is expected to hit North America later in 2010 as a 2011 model.
