In April, everybody who walked by the FAW display at the Beijing Auto Show, yours truly included, did a double-take and took a lot of pictures upon seeing their Red Flag CA7600L monstrosity. It was a huge crowd magnet, and everybody walked away, muttering: “They’ll never build THAT.” Boy was everybody wrong.
Gasgoo says FAW is now “seriously considering” to produce the Red Flag CA7600L limousine.
It’s a monster. Gasgoo has it at over 251-inches long, 79-inches wide, 67-inches tall, and with a 153-inch wheelbase. The car ( if you can call it that) weighs-in at nearly 6000 lbs. It is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that makes 402 hp. According to Gasgoo, the thing will be priced at 4 million yuan ($58,500, they say). If that’s true (I doubt it) then I’m the first one in my building to buy one, if only for shits and giggles. Anybody else? We probably can organize a group buy. It doubt it will have problems with crash tests. The hood ornaments would probably make it flunk ECE requirements for pedestrian protection.
