    The Hong Qi has cloned the front fenders and hood of the GAZ M-21 Volga. Look closely, and you will clearly see it.

    The M-21 rear quarters appear to be evident in the side view of the Hong Qi. A rear view of the car would probably show the resemblance more clearly. The wheel openings, however, are more squared off than those of the Volga.

    I wouldn't say it's a clone, but very similar styling, grill, placement of the corner lamps and etc.

    Thank you for the excellent color photo of the rear. There is M-21 influence there, also.

    The GAZ-14 looks very much like the Lincoln/Mercury bodies of the mid 1970's.

    Still has GAZ M-21 style rear fenders, but a modern Lincoln style body. Thank you Betauser, for providing the link. These photos of the new Red Flag have been copied and pasted from that link.
