Launches later this year

Our spies have managed to catch the 2013 Kia K9, ahead of its launch later this year.

While the prototype is heavily camouflaged, official sketches have shown it will feature a prominent grille, sweptback headlights and front fender vents. Out back, there's a shark-fin antenna, a dual exhaust system and LED taillights.

Since the model is based on the Hyundai Genesis, engine options will likely include a 3.8-liter V6 with 333 hp (248 kW / 338 PS), a 4.6-liter V8 with 385 hp (287 kW / 390 PS) and a 5.0-liter V8 that develops 429 hp (320 kW / 435 PS).

Let's hope they change the name...would hate it to be known as a "dog" of a car!

Pity it ain't coming to Europe! That ex Audi guy Peter Schreyer is an absolute genius......he has made Kia sexy. He deserves a lot of credit. I'd say this car will be stunning.
