Geely unveils more honest GE limousine

Geely is back showing off its GE limosine after finding itself in hot water with Rolls-Royce for the original design of the vehicle (read news). Geely Automobile has reworked the majority of the car into what’s seen in these grainy pictures. The Chinese automaker originally unveiled the GE back at the 2009 Shanghai Motor Show, and the car resembled Rolls Royce’s trademark style very closely. All those at Rolls-Royce were not amused, and weren’t willing to let it slide and threatened legal action unless the car underwent serious alterations.

In response to the Rolls Royce dust-up, Geely has fitted the GE Limousine with an all-new nose, complete with a massive boulbous grille and grinning headlights. The interior has also gone under the knife, and as a result, the gimmicky single throne in the rear has been jettisoned. The Chinese company has now opted for a much more traditional two-bucket design in the rear.

Expect to see the revised GE at this year’s Beijing Auto Show, along with a massive total of 58 other vehicles from the company’s three brands.
