The Karlmann King, the most outrageous SUV in the world, is something you would not expect to see on your daily route.

It’s basically everything you would need in case everyone’s homes are destroyed.

Likewise, the Karlmann King is bulletproof and weighs just over six tons, and even though it costs well over seven figures, but Karlmann thinks there are enough ‘features’ to justify that number.

It may look like a glorified batmobile, but in reality, the European manufacturer takes orders to create a custom build of the Karlmann King, especially for you.

There are not many luxuries this SUV doesn’t have, but here are some that it offers.

For starters, the King’s exterior body is made using a combination of carbon fiber and steel.

If you want bulletproofing, that is an add-on and will cost $300,000 extra.

It doesn’t look anything like a regular SUV, even by modern EV standards, with its asymmetrical and cyberpunk-like style.

As you might have guessed, the entire interior is fully customizable, and you can add everything you like.

For instance, there’s an option to add a private safe, a PlayStation console, satellite phones and TVs, tables, and a refrigerator.

There’s also a bar, in case you were wondering.

Despite housing a 398 bhp 6.8-liter V10 engine, it only has a top speed of 87 mph (140 km/h).

It’s mainly because the Karlmann King is just heavy, with all its top-of-the-line interior and body.

While the speed may be less, you can undoubtedly enjoy the riches that this SUV has to offer.

Karlmann mentions that it has a team of over 1,800 people who cherry-pick and work on every Karlmann King order they get.

It also wants to keep the SUV’s status scarce so every Karlmann King is unique. Hence, it’s the most expensive SUV in the world.

If you want to pair your luxury SUV with something, you can get a mansion with its own go-kart track.
