Date posted: 07-25-2006
SHANGHAI, China — The term "low-priced sports car" has been an oxymoron for a long time.
Now Geely of China is preparing to offer its Beauty Leopard to European buyers as early as 2008 — and to sell it at low prices people in the West are not accustomed to paying for a performance car.
The Beauty Leopard sells at about $7,500-$15,000 in China, although Geely says it will be priced higher than in the West. Average yearly sales in China are 500 units and sales are mainly to individuals.
