    Shanghai 2013: Geely KC Concept

    Geely KC concept debuts in China before the Shanghai Auto Show
    BY TYCHO DE FEYTER
    APRIL 19, 2013
    Car News China

    The new Geely KC concept just debuted in Shanghai, one day before the start of the Shanghai Auto Show. Geely couldn’t wait that long and organized its own party which is still ongoing as I write these very words. The Geely KC is a very good looking sporty fastback previewing a future high-end Geely which will be based on the platform of the current Volvo S80. The concept car is very likely based on the S80 as well.

    We are getting these pics from our friends in the audience, using flashy mobile devices to get the KC out to the wider world. Whenever we get high-res pics we will post another post. Earlier this week Geely released an official press release about the KC, yet without photos, and there we learned that the designer of the KC is none other than ex-Volvo design boss and current Geely design boss Peter Horbury, who was quoted saying:

    “The design philosophy of KC concept originates from the spirit of “freedom, exploration and dream”, its integration shows that Geely adheres to the modern automobile design philosophy and design highlight of integrating Chinese traditional cultural essence.”

    Did anyone notice the designer responsible for this car? Peter Horbury (former Volvo and Lincoln Designer) now designing for Chinese Automaker Geely... What's the key syllable in his name? LOL

    What have you done with the real John Starnes???

    Normally, you have an impeccable sense of automotive style. In this case, I could not disagree with you more!

    That grille is HORRIBLE!!
