First Automobile Works (FAW), China’s first auto manufacturer, has been spied testing their new Bentung A 501. I’m very curious about that model because it’s not like other Chinese cars … a very good exterior replica. Maybe this is because it was designed by the famous Italian design house, ItalDesign.
It’s rumored to be a joint venture with Mazda, uses the Ford CD3 midsized platform (that they have on Mazda 6) and should be marketed as a sporty car using a 1.6 or a 2.0 L engine from the same Mazda 6. I don’t know nothing about power output or other details but it’s supposed to hit the floors during the Beijing Auto Show.
