Recently, the French automaker released a teaser image of their upcoming car named the Talisman, which will make its world premiere at the Beijing Motor Show come 23 April 2012.

According to the Webster online dictionary:

"A talisman is an object held to act as a charm to avert evil and bring good fortune. It is something producing apparently magical or miraculous effects". This is certainly the effect that Renault hopes to achieve with its soon-to-be introduced Talisman sedan in China.

Actually, the Renault Talisman is not 'all new' so to say. It is actually a rebadged version of the Samsung SM7 sedan, which was launched in South Korean back in Aug 2011. For those unaware, Renault bought a 70 percent stake in Samsung back in September 2000.

In South Korean, the SM7 is offered with a choice of two Nissan V6 engines, namely a 2.5-litre generating 190hp with 243Nm of torque and a 3.5-litre producing 258hp and 330Nm. In today's age and technology, such outputs can be derived from a 2.0-litre turbocharged lump. The Talisman is expected to get similar power plants.

This not the first time Renault is selling a rebadged Samsung outside South Korean. The Renault Latitude that we are getting in Singapore is actually a rebadged Samsung SM5.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
