Default "Zeus" at Beijing 2010

The AC Group's upmarket branch, Zeus, made it's debut at Beijing, showing off two models, the Zeus III, and the Zeus IV. They each provide an interesting British alternative to the German "posh-car" posse.


Zeus III | 150BHP-250BHP | Front engined, rear-wheel drive | 17 000-23 000




The Zeus III is Zeus' assault on the luxury C-segment. Being rear-wheel drive, it is both more entertaining to drive than an Audi A3, and more elegant to look at than BMW's 1-series. The III's range-topping 250BHP is shared with the ACdesign Reprisal, and the car's RWD platform is shared with the Mabilis, ensuring that the car can handle the 300+ horsepower of the rumoured "AZ Tech" version.


Zeus IV | 200BHP-330BHP | Front engined, rear-wheel drive | 23 000-30 000




After the demise of Jaaag's X-Type, a gap was left in the market for a British-built BMW 3-series rival. Luckily, Zeus' IV fills this market-gap, and with what fashion?! The IV's stately grill is reminscent of Rovers or old, and invokes a strong brand identity. The lines throughout the car are clean and simple, while still looking very classy!

I've added a short explanation of the brand, as well as explanations of the individual models.

i like the IV, bold though looks a wee bit big for a 3 series rival. From the teaser I though this would almost be a 7.
Love the name though, Could have a musclecar brand called Thor! haha
