For some people, the best is never good enough, and the must always have something new, fresh, or odd that sets them apart from the mainstream. Karlmann King is a high end auto manufacturer that serves the needs of the never satisfied, and their luxury sports utility vehicle (unofficially dubbed “Ground Stealth Fighter”), sets the bar high for those looking to be different.

Developed by a worldwide team of 1,800 designers, developers, and engineers, the Karlmann King is based on the Ford F-550 chassis, but takes over 30,000 man hours of custom hand building to complete a single unit. Powered by a 6.8-Liter V10 gasoline engine, the massive 4×4 lumbers along to find a max speed of 87 mph, making the near 20-foot long SUV a crawler more than a sprinter. The exterior of the behemoth is clad in carbon fiber and sheet steel, though a bulletproof finish is optional for those in need of extra armor for their family wagon. Inside the Karlmann King passengers have access to a 4K entertainment systems with PS4, satellite phones and television, and even private safes for those that need extra security from their thieving little brothers. With each unit being custom made to order it might be quite a bit of time before you see a Karlmann King waiting in line to pick up the kids from school.
