JAC is the Chinese company that caused worldwide, well, at least American indignation with a fake F 150. JAC will premiere something at the Beijing Auto Show that is not prima facie fake: A sports car. According to Carnewschina, JAC will show the JAC Heyue SC coupe, or what Carnewschina calls “the biggest surprise for the Beijing Auto Show.”

The car should be available this year from 200.000 yuan ($31,700). The 2.4 liter engine with 121kw (161 hp) sounds a little anemic. As for the branding – over to you, Carnewschina:

‘Heyue’ is best translated as ‘Harmony & Happiness’ and that indeed is a very interesting name for a sports car. The Heyue’s design is still sharp after three years, it seems JAC didn’t change much at all. The Heyue SC will compete only with the Brilliance BS6 Coupe and the BYD S8, but it is a much wilder looking thing than those two combined.”

I will be at the Beijing Auto Show and will bring you firsthand  pictures. Maybe even of the fake F150, if it’s there.
