Beijing Auto C70G gets a kinky name: Gentlemen’s Treasure

Beijing Auto C70G

The Beijing Auto C70G debuted on the Beijing Auto Show late last month. Beijing Auto has now registered a real name for the fine vehicle: Shen Bao (绅宝), best translated as ‘Gentlemen’s Treasure’ or ‘Gentlemen’s Precious’. Well, we can think of a lotta things with that, but a Saab-based Chinese car is not the first idea that comes to mind…

Trademark registration leaked, so we know. The Beijing Auto C70G-Gentlemen’s Treasure is based on the ancient Saab 9-5 that debuted in the early 1990′s. BAIC, Beijing Auto’s parent company, bought the platforms and engines for the 9-5 and 9-3 from GM in 2009. The C70G will be powered by a reworked Saab 2.0 turbo with 200hp and 300nm, it is expected to hit the Chinese car market late this year.

    in the old days,the translation of “saab” in China is “绅宝”,not “萨博”
