Geely GT Concept leaks ahead of Beijing show
It's easy to compare cars, finding a curve here or a swell there that resembles the design of another. Many have said the Ferrari 599GTB and Corvette C6 Z06 share a lot in common, for example, although it's certain that neither copied the other - it's just an example of how common design goals can lead to common design products. Perhaps that's why Geely's new GT concept seems to have the feel of several cars - Maserati's Gran Turismo, Alfa Romeo's 8C Competizione and Aston Martin's V8 Vantage come immediately to mind, depending on the angle.

One thing is certain, however: the grille is completely original. Combining what appear to be wing-inspired metal surrounds with a plethora of ovalized rectangular chrome-lined holes, it certainly creates a focal point for the front of the car. The eye-like headlights and lower fascia seem tame only by comparison. But otherwise, the car's design is surprisingly svelte and sexy.
Consider Geely's previous attempts at design, the GT concept is downright magnificent. No details have yet followed these pictures into the open, but expect more once the Beijing Auto Show, scheduled for April 20-28, draws nearer.
