The Hongqi L5 has debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show. It is the third car in Hongqi’s L-Series, after the giant Hongqi L9 (aka CA7600L) and the slightly shorter Hongqi L7. The L9 and the L7 are both powered by a V12, while the L5 will likely get a V8. The Hongqi L5 is also a bit shorter than the L7.

New spy shots from the Hongqi L7 limousine testing in China, it will be launched on the Chinese auto market later this year, but only for the government, private buyers will only be able to get one in 2013. Power will come from a 6.0 V12 with 400hp and 580nm, and that seems barely enough to move the 3.15 ton L7 forwards any fast.

These are the very first pictures of the interior of the production version of the Hongqi L7, and we are positively impressed. Beautifully crafted, top end materials and completely digital. Especially impressive is the center tunnel with a ‘floating’ layer of wood on top of it.

An extremely rare Hongqi CA72 has been spotted in Romania, parked rather lonely on a quiet street in front of a Dacia pickup truck. The Hongqi CA72 was made from 1959 until 1965. In 6 years only 198 cars were made, making the CA72 one of the rarest Hongqi’s. We only met two examples in China, both safely stored in museums.
