At an automobile fair, the motto is "See and be seen". This is probably what the people in charge at Dongfeng thought when they bought the brand new Aeolus Yixuan MAX, which is not yet available on the market, on the Auto Shanghai presented. In addition to the conventional production version, which comes across as very civil and is intended to attract customers in the middle class, a modified version of the new model was also presented, which we do not assume that it will ever be available on the market like this, because that OEM body kit, which the sedan was missed, is probably only attached for demonstration purposes, and to a few future customers Modification options to show which could possibly be carried out in a similar way.
Matte black and matte gold
But at Dongfeng you never know, because of the little brother, too Aeolus Yixuan D53 there are special models that have been equipped with sometimes wild OEM tuning and can be bought quite regularly on the Chinese market. Above all, the aim is to appeal to young audiences who appreciate the brand's sporty positioning. From our point of view, it took long enough for the official presentation of the latest Dongfeng limousine to take place after countless Erlkönig photos, but nobody expected such a bang. Instead of just presenting a normal series version, Dongfeng delights the trade fair visitors with an extreme tuning variant of their latest creation. The front spoiler, which was kept in matte gold, and with its design is a bit reminiscent of a Toyota Supra A90, as well as the matt gold clasps in the front apron, make the car look extremely aggressive and dominant.
They offer an ideal contrast to the matt black front, and look great on the car. The darkened headlights and the large grill also give it an evil look. A design stands out on the side that is strongly reminiscent of a Wide body kit reminds, but comes along with a very own style and an unusual shape. Side fins and notches make for an extremely well-trained impression that the rear diffuser with the Four pipe exhaust system is still underlined. You don't even know where to look first because they darkened taillights with its continuous strip of lights, as well as the massive one rear spoiler also immediately cast a spell over you.
The absolute highlight, however, are those front doors in Lamborghini stylewhich unfortunately cannot be found in the production model, but for almost every vehicle today can be retrofitted inexpensively. In addition, the lower part of the stern is also in Matte gold held to provide a perfect contrast to the black stern, with darkened taillights and a black diffuser, to create. The black rims are also provided with a gold ring on the tread and pick up on the familiar color scheme. Just that red painted calipers may not really suit this vehicle from our point of view.
Interior with sporty accents.
The color of the interior harmonizes perfectly with the exterior paintwork, there Gold and black also determine the interior. There is also a Alcantara sports steering wheel, which with its thick rim should lie comfortably in the hand and thus invites you to sporty driving.
A four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine provides propulsion.
A 1,5-liter turbo gasoline engine with four cylinders, the 204 PS and 320 Newtonmeter maximum torque generated. The power is transmitted via a automatic transmission, of which we unfortunately do not yet know how many speed steps it has, on the front wheels. Motorized in this way, the Dongfeng is also suitable for quick stretches of the motorway, and would certainly be well received in Europe.
Our conclusion on the Dongfeng Aeolus Yixuan MAX:
At first glance, very unusual, but nothing special in China, that new vehicles are presented at an auto show with wild OEM body kits in order to probe the feasibility of such a tuning. Admittedly, we think it's cool that Dongfeng is presenting its latest model with such blatant modifications, and we pay our respects to the manufacturer.
