From China Car Times

Geely is undergoing a major restructuring process in 2009 to make it into a more of an international company, and thus taking it away from its roots as a small regional player.

The Geely GC-1, which was recently spotted out testing on the highway, is expected to be at the forefront of Geelys new high end branding, the actual brands name has yet to be anounced, but a logo has been set aside for the brand. The Chinese press commented that the rear end of the GC-1 shown looks rather similar to the current Toyota Camry.

Re: future Geely GC-1

Some more pics of GC-1 (At least that's what I they are.)



I haven't been very good with pics of new cars lately, so just say if they're a different model.

KiwiGuy-that black/dark grey one you have a pic of above has a cool looking design in front, IMO. Is that a Geely GC-1? Or are we still not sure?

Those rims on it are awesome, too.

Re: future Geely GC-1

I think there are some similarities between the two pictures by me and Analyst, but maybe be mine is an initial concept picture.
Can't say for sure because the website was all in Chinese (that's very helpful isn't it?) but the image did say GC-1. So maybe this might be initial concept picture.
BTW, both look absolutely awesome, no doubt about that. But, the ones that are actually testing, I've noticed, are completely different.

Re: Emgrand EC8 (Geely GC-1)

:mad: look at those gaps inside!....Something tells me that although geely cars has began to look good, the quality is still the same...something that will put consumers off in a very competitive industry.

And here's another with a different front end shown in 2008. Hopefully someone can straighten us out about these 3 GC versions.

@ dragin: The photos in your and Analyst' post show the Geely GC Concept, which was exhibited at Auto China 2008 (Beijing). KiwiGuy's post shows a rendering, a fake impression of the GC Concept. And this thread is about the Geely Emgrand EC8, which completely differs from the GC Concept.

Thank you DC for the clarification. Geely sure is going in lots of directions at the same time these days.

Re: Emgrand EC8 (Geely GC-1)

Does anybody know any specs of this car? What size is it? Which engines? Is it on a platform known from earlier, or is it all completely new? By the way: It's the best Geely I have seen so far.
