Re: Beijing Auto B80V
The mighty Beijing Auto BJ80 monster SUV debuted today on the Beijing Auto Show. The BJ80 is officially still a concept but a production version is on the way. The Beijing Auto BJ80 started life as a military vehicle designated Beijing Auto 80 VJ, and later on we saw a civilian version designated Beijing Auto B80V. The BJ80 is a souped up version of the civilian version with a hefty body kit and huge 21 inch alloys.Earlier on we heard the civilian version would be powered by a 2.4 liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 143hp and 217nm, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, Beijing Auto surprised on the show by claiming the BJ80 is actually powered by a “4.0 liter V8″, without giving any more specifications.
