Geely redesigns its GE limousine a.k.a. Rolls-Royce Phantom clone

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

At next week's Bejing Motor Show, a modified version of the Geely GE limousine that was unveiled last year will be displayed. The car was criticized heavily last year for its similarity to the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Rolls-Royce actually said that it was considering undertaking legal action over the 5.4-metre Geely GE prototype.

At the Beijing show, we should all expect the car to have been extensively restyled. It will boast a rounder appearance, especially at the front end.

For its interior, the car gets two rear seats instead of a single 'throne' arrangement of the original concept. The Geely GE prototype was similar to the Rolls in terms of the shape of its cabin, windows and down-sloping rear deck.

Rolls also took notice of the prototype's 'Grecian temple' grille, especially as it was topped by a figure which seemed to draw influence from Rolls-Royce's traditional Spirit of Ecstasy.

The only difference was that the figure sloped backwards. The prototype's nose, beneath which is mounted a 3.5 litre V6, is significantly shorter than that of the Rolls. Geely will be displaying a total of 59 cars in Bejing, across its Emgrand, Global Eagle and Englon brands.
