BYD first unveiled their S8 soft top to the crowds at the Beijing 2006 auto crowds, who were blown away by the design. Not blown away in a ‘that design is totally awesome‘ way, but more of a ‘Jesus – They cloned a Merc, a Renault, and had a giant party!‘
The S8 is now ready for production, and will hit the market by mid summer according to Auto China. The S8 was originally known as the F8, but has now been slightly touched up ahead of production. Pricing is expected to be around 150,000rmb to 250,000rmb.
Engine information was posted here on China Car Times, be prepared to be impressed.
