The massive Hongqi L7 will be launched on the Chinese auto market next year. The Hongqi L7 debuted on the Beijing Auto Show in April and is the short-wheelbase version of the even more massive Hongqi CA7600L (aka Hongqi L9) state limousine. The L7’s internal designation is CA7600. Power comes from a 6 liter V12 that poops out 405hp and 550nm. Price will range between 6 and 8 million yuan, or between 942.000 and 1.25 million USD. Rolls-Royce and Bentley, be afraid… Via: Sohu.

Stop renaming that car! This won’t affect sales at all.
Wonder how successful would such a chinese car will be with such price. The super-rich probably will prefer a Rolls Royce or a Bentley than a Hongqi.
@ PGMJ – The government and state-owned companies should support this project to enable FAW to develop the most sophisicated automotive technologies, which are always found in the most luxurious vehicles.
Eventually the product (perhaps the next generation model, or certainly the one after that) will be good enough to sell on its own merits, including outside of China, but that will never happen without full support at this stage.
