Believe it or not, the car is going on sale. Next month! :w00t:

We always wondered when we say this car at the Beijing Auto Show in 2006 if they would ever release this car, and it seems that Dongfeng have reasonably high hopes for this car.
This car was designed by Dongfeng themselves and it … urm.. shows. China Car Times doesnt have any specifics on the car, other than its pretty ugly and that Dongfeng are planing on selling 2000 of the cars in the Japanese market next year. The oddest thing about the Dongfeng coupe is the boot of the car that seems to be able to raise and lower itself to give the driver more boot space should he need it.
he Dongfeng coupe comes complete with tiny 15inch wheels and odd looking indicator lights down the side of the front wings:
We cant wait for this one to hit the market this month, oh no - we put the wrong ending sentence in this blog post, no, we dont want this to hit anything other than a brick wall.

I think yellow is the worst colour for a motor show car. It woulc look better in something like British racing green or a dark blue. I dont like the front vents or the multiple indicator lights but it is no worse than the original Hyundai S coupe was. Would need to see different photos though.

This has to be some mistake. According to Gasgoo coupe is going into production.

December 31, 2008 - Dongfeng Motor Group yesterday confirmed that its own-brand coupe model code-named EQ7240 has been approved by China's auto industry regulator for mass production and will be launched to market in early 2009, at a price above 200,000 yuan ($29,300). It will be the first coupe model developed and made by a Chinese automaker.

The Dongfeng coupe model has been listed among the new vehicles for production in the new year by China's Ministry of Information Industry. It will be built by the Dongfeng Rongcheng Auto Company located in east China's Shandong province and is expected to go on sale in the first half of next year.

Dongfeng Rongcheng said that the Dongfeng coupe is the first medium- to high-grade coupe model developed and produced by a Chinese automaker. It will be equipped with the Mitsubishi 4G69 2.4l MIVEC engine but all the other key components are developed by Dongfeng Motor.

The Dongfeng coupe concept was displayed at the 2006 Beijing auto show and since then has been awaiting approval from the industry regulator for production and sale.

The top management of Dongfeng Motor Group, China's third largest automaker, said that it has an integrated scheme for its future sedan product line-up.

Dongfeng's EQ7240BP Coupe Production Version-pics

Found some pics of the Dongfeng's EQ7240BP Coupe, this is the production version, will be in Shanghai:



Last week I showed you some somewhat vague pictures of the good old Dongfeng EQ7240BP in some stage of development. Now and finally we are in the clear: two brand new EQ7240BP's were seen outside one of Dongfeng's factories.



This means the Monster is Coming and I feel happy about it, a creation like this deserves to live, forever. Rumors say it the production car will be at the Shanghai Auto Show, it starts in four days, who cares about boring Geelys anymore?



This EQ7240BP is still hiding inside. I guess it is scared, moving out to the world after being safe in the womb since 2006 is a big step indeed. Be Fearless oh EQ7240BP, you have absolutely noting to worry about, the Universe will love you. (Note the other one, sadly unpainted, in the back.)
