What is the engine specs? Anybody know? and I guess once the polish wears off, we will get to see it's true "colours."

Also cant they be sued for copyright/trademark infringement or are the chinese immune from such antics? Remember Cherry?

I guess this is primarily meant for the Red party higher ups to travel around in.

Isn't this the second Phantom rip-off from the land of the rising 'son'? Could it thus mean that it's a rip-off of a rip-off?

In my books, rip-off of a rip-off => Original

Simple double negativity. Watch out Phantom. And no, I'm not paid to big up this Geely.

looks bad from the front and the rear, though the side profile looks good.
from the inside looks like a very expensive toilet on wheels.

The rear seat layout resembles the throne I use every morning . At least the occupant using the rear throne has higher chances of surviving a side impact since he'll be far away from the sides. I doubt if this car will even get a 2 star crash test rating.

Check this out: In German crash test, China's Brilliance BS6 sedan fails miserably

I think that this thing is still quite impressive. It'll most likely be sold at throwaway prices for such luxury. I remember James May saying that the Jap Rolls sold at something like 30K pounds. That's nothing compared to what the ride offers. I think that if you get something like this at the price of say an Octavia or a C class, well why not?

Wow that is one strange set of wheels. Why the single seat why why, it should be a convertible to justify this single seat for Kim Jong, North Korea

Same thoughts! Doesn't resemble the Enzo. That is a bad try. If you want to see replicas, you must see the Hongqi! wahahahaha!
