The first generation LZ Hyundai Equus was manufactured from 1999 until 2009, competing head to head with the SsangYong Chairman series. Design of the Equus was outsourced to Mitsubishi Motors of Japan, who had their own version called the Proudia.

The Hyundai Equus was available with various engines, including a 3.0 V6, a 3.5 V6, a 3.8 V6, and a fatass 280hp 4.5 liter V8. Only transmission was a five speed automatic, sending power to the front wheels. No rear wheel drive on the Equus! This Beijing car has the 3.5 V6 under the bonnet.
