This is the new Beijing Auto C70G getting a final cleanup before the start of the Beijing Auto Show tomorrow. The Beijing Auto C70G is based on the Saab 9-5 and designed with help from the famous Italian design-house Fioravanti, not Pininfarina as earlier reported.
The Italian input is clearly visible, they managed to make that old Saab a rather good looking sportsmachine again. Power comes from a reworked Saab 2.0 turbo that poops out 206hp and 300nm. Beijing Auto will also show a concept electric version called the C70GB.
Nice design but reminds me of Volvo and the back retains the old 9-5’s shape
From the side, the front reminds me about a Merc. But almost all cars reminds me about other cars, good ideas is often “borrowed”.
