Spy Shots: Haval goes rally fighting with new concept car

Patent drawings showing a new concept car currently under development at Haval, a brand of Great Wall Motors. The concept is expected to debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in December. The vehicle appears to be a sporty two-door 4×4 rally car in pretty much the same fashion as the famous Local Motors Rally Fighter.

Classic sporty car silhouette with a long bonnet, a steep raking window, and a long low slung rear deck. Wheels are at least 22 inch, but there is still a lot of space in the arches for dealing with the wild off-road movements. Road clearance is at least 30 centimeters. This indeed, could be a serious contender in the Baja 1000.

No word on engines yet, and most concept cars go without, but Haval has a sweet 3.0 V6 turbo that would fit in very well. The engine delivers 333hp and 480nm and is mated to an 8-speed automatic. The engine will serve in the upcoming Haval H9, a giant super-sized SUV. Just for comparison; the Local Motors Rally Fighter has 430hp, but that comes from a lumpy dumpy far-too-heavy 6.2 liter V8.

Skid plates front and rear. Small grille and nasty looking headlights. We can’t wait for Guangzhou…

That v8 likely is physically smaller and weighs less than that turbo v6. Since you run a car blog you should do some research first.

The thing is that you don’t just ” buy ” a Rally Fighter …
You can join in building it partially yourself (at the plant) , wich also means it is hand build !!! Rally Fighter’s components come from many big names in the industry …
