1998 Vision K2

The Vision K2 is an American designed, engineered, and built, technology oriented performance/luxury vehicle for the next millennium. The muscular design qualities of the K2 evoke power and prestige, which compliment the vehicle’s 800 horsepower engine.

Vision Industries, LLC was formed in 1997 and in 1998 completed a white foam and fiberglass non-operational vehicle code named K/2, which was initially constructed for design evaluation purposes.

The name K/2 connotes “peak” performance with respect to one of the world’s highest mountains.

The “muscular” design theme of the VISION K/2 is intended to connote power and performance in an American “muscle car” designed for the 21st century.

In 1998 the VISION K/2 was exhibited at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and the Greater Los Angeles International Auto Show.

The VISION K/2 was the last automobile designed by Tom Kellogg, a respected American automotive designer.

The VISION K2 is engineered for high performance driving. The K2 is designed to accommodate a BMW supercharge 6.0 liter V12 power plant mounted mid-ship for balance and superior handling capabilities. Power is to be transferred to 18′ front and 19′ rear wheels through a custom built six speed transaxle. The K2 will utilize a state-of-the-art independent suspension system, incorporating coil-over shocks for superior control, power transfer, and ride characteristics.
