Spy Shots: Beijing Auto BJ40 Dark Knight is Ready for the China car market
Published on May 6, 2014 by Joey Wang
Spy Shots of the upcoming Beijing Auto BJ40 Dark Night, a special edition based on the Beijing Auto B40. The Dark Knight comes with a chromed grille, LED strips under the headlights, side bars, a skid pad under the front bumper, chromed door handles, and chromed mirrors. The Beijing Auto B40 Dark Knight will battle the China car market starting in July.
The base Beijing Auto B40, launched on the Chinese auto market in December 2013. Price starts at 146.800 yuan and ends at 186.800 yuan. Power comes from a 2.4 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 143hp and 217nm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission sending power to all four wheels.
Chromed fuel cap very kinky.
Sales of the BJ40 have been slow, mostly due to the underpowered engine. Sadly, the Black Knight won’t change that as it didn’t get any hike in horsepower, but it sure look a lot more menacing…
