Rolls-Royce can breathe easy: Geely GE gets restyled for 2010 Beijing

Geely, the Chinese automaker that will be buying Volvo from FoMoCo, will launch a new modified version of its GE limousine sedan at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show next week. The original model, which made its debut at last year’s Shanghai Motor Show, was criticized for being startlingly similar to the Rolls-Royce Phantom..

The new Geely GE has been heavily restyled with a much rounder look. Inside, the model gets two rear seats rather than single “throne” arrangement of the original concept.

After the original Geely GE prototype made its debut last year in Shaghai, Rolls-Royce announced that it may consider legal action against the Chinese automaker.

We’re not sure what they’re thinking now.
