The producers of the Hong Qi state limousine that Chairman Hu used at the 2009 review of the troops is set to be produced in limited numbers for civilian use, however the price is not for the common proletariat with the price tag a staggering 8 million RMB (1.17 million USD).

As you can see from above, the interior of the HQE state limosuine is under going some civilian restructuring, however the V12 monster engine that was designed by FAW will be the same as the Chairmans. The V12 engine, the CA12GV model has its cylinders at a 60° which helps it boost out 300Kw of power and a maximum torque of 550Nm, it is also the worlds first car to use twin ECUs according to Chinese media reports. Apparently the sound proofing on the inside of the car is second to none, with it being practically sound proof, outside noise is unable to penetrate the cabin.

The price tag maybe high, but FAW are bound to sell quite a few of these. More news as we get it.
