Say if you had loads of money and we really mean loads of money and you wanted to purchase a car; which companies would you go and check out? Exactly; either Rolls-Royce or Ferrari or Bugatti are the names that pop up in your mind.
But what if we told you that theres a chinese car which costs more than these brands? Say hello to Hongqi, which is a Chinese company and has decided to wet its beak in the bigger market.
The model that has been introduced by Hongqi is being called the L5 and costs $803,300. Just for the sake of comparison; if you had this much money you could purchase Rolls-Royce Phantom, Lamborghini Huracan and still be left with a decent amount of cash. L5 comes with loads of sheet metal and weighs in at 6,950 pounds which is roughly 1,300 pounds more than a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Hongqu, for obvious reasons, decided to put a 402 hp V-12 engine in the car that drives all four wheels. Such a powerful engine would indeed be required to make this huge car to move. Moving to the interior; it is definitely up to date with all the modern gadgetry and stuff.The L5 comes with a myriad of display screens, which cater to the needs of driver and passengers. However, the design of this L5 has been lifted off directly from CA72 state Limousine 1959 by the same Chinese company. The design hasnt been innovated nor re-invented but rather re-applied again.
The first car has already been sold to a certain Mr. Wang Zhonghua who has a chain of furniture malls to his name. Would you buy this car too? Let us know in the comments section below
