FAW-Besturn B70 is carbon-fiber matte black in China

A very stealthy FAW-Besturn B70 sedan, seen parked on a bicycle lane in my very own street in Beijing. The fine vehicle is wrapped in a very interesting carbon-fiber matte black, as if the whole body is made of carbon-fiber. The area under the bumper is made black but the alloys are sadly standard.

The wrap neatly extends over the bumpers and mirrors. The rear lights have been darkened a bit. Strangely, the chrome around the windows hasn’t been covered, while the chrome strip on the back has. Inconsistent wrapping… The FAW-Besturn B70 is based on the first generation Mazda 6 that is still in production in China, made by the FAW-Mazda joint venture. Price of the Besturn B70 starts at 119.800 yuan and ends at 141.800 yuan. Engines: a Volkswagen-sourced 1.8 and Mazda-sourced 2.0 and 2.3 liter engines.
