Vietnam BMW X5 with the engine from Corvette


Vietnamese company VinFast using for its models the old platform BMW showed the next new product. This is the top version of crossover LUX SA, equipped with a V8 engine. Presumably, the unit is borrowed from the Chevrolet Corvette.

Crossover was named President and VinFast from LUX SA2.0 is performance. The most noticeable change is the hood with the air intake covered with a fine mesh grille, 22-inch wheels and gold accents around the perimeter of the body. Behind a Quartet of lads of the exhaust system. Photos interior not, but we can focus on the decoration of ordinary LUX SA. According to the manufacturer, it will be richly decorated with suede and carbon fiber.

Under the hood VinFast President installed V-shaped “eight”, the origin of which the company has preferred not to tell.


Presented last year at the Geneva motor show a prototype of LUX equipped with a V8 engine 6.2 LS-series Chevrolet Corvette, and probably on the “President” is used the same way. The unit produces 455 horsepower and 624 Nm of torque, allowing the car to accelerate to 300 kilometers per hour.

Both models – LUX SA2.0 and President – based on “the truck” BMW X5 series F15. The design of the machines was the work of Italian Studio Pininfarina. The range of engines include a two-liter “turboservice” capacity of 176 (300 Nm) and 231 force (350 Nm), combined with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic”.
