“Seri Paduka hopes that Malaysia will use its efforts to utilize and increase the amount of trade, exchange technology and also develop exports to China.”

According to a report by New Straits Times, the car was launched in 2014 and it is a Chinese take on the Rolls Royce Phantom. It is powered by the first indigenously self-developed, Hongqi V-type, 12-cylinder, total-aluminium engine which adopts a V-type 60-degree angle, with four valves on each cylinder, independent air vent systems and low speed with high torque reaching 440Nm/1000rpm.
