Released in 2013 at the Shanghai Auto Show, the L5 is renowned for currently being the most expensive Chinese-made car ever available for purchase, at CN¥5 million Renminbi (US$800,000 UK£880,000). It is the official state car of China, as it is used by the General Secretary of the Communist Party (Paramount leader) Xi Jinping. The sedan is currently offered only in China.
In 2016 Hongqi announced a V8 version of the L5, powered by a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 producing 381 horsepower with an eight-speed automatic. The V12 model is designated as CA7600 and the V8 version as CA7400. The CA7400 was released in 2017.
