Next generation 750 spotted out testing

Dual clutch technology is a big thing for Volkswagen, who of course make cars with Shanghai Auto Industry Corporation in Shanghai, now SAIC are planning to put dual clutch tech into their own cars. Its not clear who the supplying company will be for the gearbox or if SAIC have managed to develop the technology themselves in house, SAIC will launch the new 750 with the choice of the old 1.8T and 2.5V6 but a new 1.8T and 2.0T engine will launch shortly afterwards.The new 750 is expected to break its cover at the Guangzhou auto show later this year in concept form only, but should be on show in Beijing next year, the 750 will be based on a stretched Epsilon II platform that SAIC have purchased from long term partner GM.

SAIC are also working on a 1.0T and a 1.5T engines for the MG brand.

The Roewe 550 will be getting a makeover later this year with the introduction of a new six speed DCT gearbox and will also carry SAICs new self developed EPS system.
