    Default Has a Chinese Company saved the hydropneumatic CitroŽn?

    Good news for C6 owners, non-visible parts might be available for a while yet?

    Well, besides the fact that the article was written by some hipster trying to sound "with it", it is an interesting idea. The C6 got nowhere near the market coverage it deserved or needed, so it's obscure enough that it looks brand new for the Chinese.

    The article mentions that the Dongfeng is "badass". I think I would pay money for a car billed as "the 2016 Dongfeng Badass".

    "Dongfeng Badass" sounds like the noise you might get from hitting a couple of floor toms and then a high hat.

    Made in China? I'm pretty sure it is no less than bad azz.
    I have seen some Chinese cars, Chinese toys and Chinese tools. I will never buy one of those Dingdong ***ang cars.

    Taken from Wikipedia

    Dongfeng, literal translation: "East Wind"
    Dongfeng 1
    First of the Dong Feng missiles, the DF-1 was a licensed copy of the Soviet R-2 missile.
    The DF-1 had a single RD-101 rocket engine, and used alcohol for fuel with liquid oxygen (LOX) as an oxidizer. The missile had max range of 550 km and 500 kg payload. Limited numbers of DF-1 were produced in the 1960s, and have since been retired.

    The stats are a bit off but the history is the same

    G'day,
    I like the 'licensed copy' bit.

    Now that you've made the observation, I need to ask: If I crash one, am I Breaking Wind?

    I think it's the worst looking C6 based car I've ever seen. I'd rather a second hand C5.

    It's the 14% take over of PSA that raised my eyebrows. Just an observation but China is taking over the world slowly and without wars. Soon everything will be Chinese whether you like it or not.
