Kia K9 – Click above for image gallery

Remember the proposed Kia K9 luxury sedan? Apparently, it's a reality, as spy shots of the Kia flagship have hit a web forum in Korea. As you can see, the K9's camouflage (which sneakily includes Hyundai Genesis wheels) doesn't obscure a set of Maserati Quattroporte-style fender ports. Just how upmarket is Kia shooting with this? Well, according to the tipster who sent them to us, the K9 is expected to slot into the market space between the Hyundai Genesis and Equus sedans.

If those two are anything to go on, Kia might be on to something. From these photos, it looks like the K9 will not only sport Quttroporte-referencing vents along its fenders, but long, angular headlights and a protruding grille, leaving impressions of the BMW 5 Series and Jaguar XJ - lofty benchmarks, indeed. Thanks for the tip, K7!
