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.
