Chinese car maker reveals two new models ahead of Shanghai show
31 March 2009

Chinese manufacturer Geely has revealed two of its new models ahead of next month’s Shanghai motor show.

The Geely GE, which looks strikingly similar to the Rolls-Royce Phantom, is a 5.3-metre long executive limousine.

A Phantom-like front grille features, as do wide C-pillars and chrome-trimmed windows. Unlike the Phantom, however, the Geely GE has a bizarre 2+1 seating arrangement, with a single, luxuriously appointed rear chair.

Geely will also be showcasing the second concept version of its GT coupe.

The Geely GT (the GT stands for Geely Tiger) concept shown at last year’s Shanghai motor show was well received, and this second concept signals a plan to create a production version.

The new Geely GT concept features scissor doors and a fully equipped interior, both of which were missing from the previous concept.
