We were treated to a fair share of world premieres as well as local, Chinese exclusive new vehicles, but the exotic sector is also well represented at the Auto China 2016.

We’re talking here about a local company – Chinese design house IAT – which has unveiled in front of the audience a six-meter-long monstruous SUV that will be sold for RMB12million apiece. Only ten units will be manufactured and the motivation under the hood comes from a V110 engine – though the unit produces a rather measly 357 bhp. What we know so far about the Kalman is that Beijing’s unit was still a working prototype undergoing testing in China with the said 357bhp, 6.8-litre V10 engine. The company, IAT Auto, will do afterwards the limited production run of said ten examples at the rather incredible price.

By the way, the latter pricing is just the guidance – the interior is fully customizable by the owner. If the future owners feared the Chinese quality for such an expensive product, fret not, as reports are suggesting that IAT is looking for a production partner in Germany for overseas manufacturing and the basis of the Kalman is provided by the Ford F-450 pickup truck.
