Late last year, Hyundai Motor Company made "Genesis" into a standalone luxury brand in the same way Citroen done with DS Automobiles, showing that it's the ideal moment to separate the men from the boys when it comes to cars. The first venture to the Genesis Motors brand is the EQ900, the flagship replacement to the Equus that promises to take on the likes of MB's S-Class and BMW's 7-Series.

Now, the first Genesis car in automotive history has been given a stretched version called the EQ900L and with added 290mm in the wheelbase, the interior of the EQ900L will accommodate even a top-ranking South Korean official after his or her busy day at the parliament. With the available "First Class VIP Seat" option, this would be the most relaxing back seat a South Korean official may live up with and enjoy his or her backseat privileges from reading the newspaper, watching TV for today's news, or even phone calls with the other officials. The rear seat of the EQ900L is nothing more like a command center on the road.

Exclusive to the EQ900L is the powerful V8 5.0-liter GDI engine which produces 425PS of power and 7.2km/L of fuel consumption, while mated with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. It even comes with HTRAC all-wheel drive system which makes it an all-weather cruiser from the Blue House to Gangnam.

The EQ900L also comes with an array of tech such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection, Active Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Driver Attention Alert, to Smart High Beam Assist and Around View Monitor.

The price for the EQ900L starts at 150,200,000 Korean Won (roughly $125,000), making it the most expensive Korean car to buy, unless if you are trying to commission it as the main mode of transport for South Korean politicians trying to mop up today's situations.
