The very first spy shots of the upcoming Hongqi L5 testing in China. The Hongqi L5 debuted last month on the Shanghai Auto Show, it is the third car in Hongqi’s L-Series, after the giant Hongqi L9 (aka CA7600L) and the slightly shorter Hongqi L7.
Tthe L9 and L7 are for the government only but the Hongqi L5 will become available for private buyers. What powers the L5 is unsure at the moment. Earlier on we heard the L5 would get a V8, but new reports in Chinese media indicate it might get a V12, just as the L7 and L9.
