LeBron James Drives Kia K900 to Collect 10 Million Dollar Bet

The NBA superstar and four MVP trophy winner LeBron James became Kia’s first ever luxury ambassador after he added a 2015 Kia K900 to his impressive collection of cars.

At the time, everyone thought it was just a marketing campaign, but James has posted on his Instagram account a picture of the car’s interior right after he bought it, with the description “Rolling around in my K900. Love this car!

Just like the majority of people who still don’t believe it and know for a fact that James can afford any car on the market, a Twitter user who is not convinced that LeBron often drives to Cleveland Cavalier’s home games in the K900 posted a tweet about this and even made a 10 million dollar bet.

In the YouTube video below, you can see the 11 times NBA All-Star taking this bet, and instead of driving to Quicken Loans Arena, he is going to collect the impressive 10 million dollars from the Twitter user who posted the message.

Kia’s flagship sedan, the K900, was launched in South Korea in 2012. It is the first full-size rear-wheel-drive sedan from Kia. Measuring 120 inches in length and packing the latest in terms of technology, it is powered by either a 3.8-liter V6 engine capable of 311 horsepower or the 5.0-liter V8 producing 420 horsepower.

Higher-specced models feature 19-inch chrome wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, turn signal indicators and taillights, 17 speakers and 16-way adjustable seats, a Blind Spot Assist system, and Head-Up Display.

LeBron James and Kia collaborated in 2015 on a one-of-a-kind K900 called The King James Edition, which was later on auctioned for charity, with the proceeds benefiting The LeBron James Family Foundation. This special model included some special features such as an Alcantara interior and headliner, color-matched diamond contrast stitching throughout, Llumar Ceramic window tint, a customized Lexicon Logic 7 audio system, and personalized King James Limited Edition Plaque #1.
