One of the SOAR Automotive vehicles was spotted by the top guys at the Winding Road site. It seemed SOAR automotive couldn’t/didn’t get get a place inside the Shanghai Auto Show hall, but instead parked one of their vehicles outside in the carpark and stuck some posters on the windscreen and front dash. Nobody knew what that car was based off, not until the brave super heroes of China Car Times came along. SOAR Automotive are based in the suburbs of Qingdao, China Car Times is based in Qingdao too. What a coincidence.
The first car spotted by Winding Road, and a few other automobile related blogs was this SOAR Automotive 1, as already mentioned, parked up in the parking lot with posters covering the windows. It has an interesting grill and a pair of tiny wheels. What is this car based off?
Wouldn’t you like to know! Click continue reading, to find out more and see some odd cars from SOAR automotive.
The SOAR Automotive 1 which was found in the car park, is based off nothing more than a Brilliance BS6. See below:
So its a just either a 1.8 or a 2.0 Mitsubishi engine, (unless they’ve changed them) under the hood. What where they thinking with that front end though? It is being marketed as a luxury car by SOAR. It looked better as a regular Brilliance!
As well as redesigning the front end of that Brilliance BS6, SOAR Automotive have gone a step further, they took a regular Brilliance BS4 – We really like this car – and turned it into a station wagon! How cool is that!?!?
Except, its not meant to be used as your average station wagon, instead it is intended to be a ‘luxury funeral herse’ Still, as a station wagon it looks great! Kudos to SOAR!
If the Brilliance BS4 funeral herse was a bit too upmarket for you, there is this offering from Soar:
Like it? We love it! How would you like to be sent off to your eternal resting place in the back of a Nissan(?) Pick Up Truck? In all seriousness, China Car Times did once see a herse/pick up truck hybrid, but it wasn’t like this!
We think SOAR make cars for all occasions, here is a wedding car – not any old wedding car mind you, its an exact replica of a Rolls Royce Phantom – no word on pricing though:
We’re desperately wondering what is under the hood on that thing.
Are you a businessman in need of a vehicle that shows who, and what you are? What you need is a luxury Ford Transit minibus! Done up of course, with suitable gaudy lighting of course, and a place to put your laptop computer!
The Transits insides gets even better:
And for the true ‘playa’ there is an extended Transit:
