A Hongqi L5 saloon costs more than a Rolls-Royce Phantom
An extended wheelbase RR Phantom clocks in at a whisker under £358k. This Chinese-built, V12-engined ‘Red Flag' L5 saloon - which was displayed at the recent Beijing Motor Show - has just sold for over five million Yuan. That's around £480k.
This is an expensive car. It's also rather heavy, clocking in at over three tonnes. There is, however, that 6.0-litre engine on-board, pushing out 402bhp to all four wheels. But... still. £480k.
