FAW Haima S1
First Automobile Works is China’s first automobile manufacturer. FAW is one of the "Big Five" Chinese automobile manufacturers along with Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, Chang’an Motors, and Chery Automobile. The company was established in 1953.
The FAW Group will display 30 new concept and produced vehicles and 4 advanced engines at the 9th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (also known as the Auto China 2006).
The Shanghai R&D office of FAW Haima Motor created this sportscar concept to highlights its abilities.
This is an interesting concept, used as aesthetic window to prove in the whole world that the FAW Group is able to carry out pretty creations with 4 wheels.
Between the many exposed prototypes, the Haima S1 is perhaps that more close to the tastes of the western public, too much observing the design of the body, where it is not difficult to discover some "rather strong inspirations", from other brands.
In the inside, however, the car introduces a modern and balanced design,with classic formula 2+2.
A coupe with sporty lines and practical to use also for the daily movements: just the right kind of car for the European and American market.
The Chinese desire to descent to the western markets could begin just from cars like the Haima S1.
