Geely is a relative newcomer to the automobile industry having begun production only in 1998. Their GT was unveiled at last year’s Beiging Auto Show and it made a big impression at that venue. Not bad for a company that got its start in manufacturing refrigerators. The GT is returning this year to capitalize on that well-received publicity. This large 2-door coupe features styling that Geely hopes will set it apart from its Chinese rivals.
The dropped front snout of the car features a split grille that has holes rather than traditional slats or mesh. The headlamps are nestled in fenders defined by sharp character lines that sweep upward and then back down into the doors. The rear haunches have a similar curve to them with large taillamps that come to a point just above the center line of the rear wheels. The greenhouse features two small rear quarter windows for the rear passengers. The rear-drive Tiger GT is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 producing some 225 bhp and 340 lb.-ft. of torque.
