With Hyundai kicking so many goals with the Hyundai Genesis, sister company Kia is looking at entering the luxury sports sedan segment with this beautiful car, the Kia K9.
Kia’s chief designer Peter Schreyer is said to have unveiled a sketch of what is currently only being referred to as K9 in Seoul a few weeks ago. Our graphic artists have been hard at work and put together the above illustration of what the car may look like. The original sketch can be found below:
Peter Schreyer has already been responsible for designing the gorgeous Kia Cerato and Sorento but he is perhaps best known for designing the original Audi TT.
Some say Schreyer has compared the K9s design to that of the Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series. As well as a sport luxury car, Kia also intends to produce a luxury sedan currently codenamed the CH for some time in 2011 (based on Hyundai’s Genesis sedan).
Little is know about the K9 or CH but we suspect they will be powered by a variety of engines including a petrol V8. Some reports suggest It may even come with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
