Geely's GC9 flagship model has been photographed in China without any camouflage.

Earlier this week Geely published teaser images of their range-topping GC9 model and now a pre-production unit has been spotted revealing the entire design. While the teaser images looked promising, the real deal looks toned down but overall it's a nice effort for a Chinese automaker. In charge of the vehicle's styling was former Volvo designer Peter Horbury who is now responsible for Geely's styling department.

The GC9 is actually a production version of the KC concept from 2013 and the car spotted here had a newly developed V6 3.5-liter engine of yet undisclosed output. This is a China-spec model where it will be sold under the Emgrand sub-brand while in other markets it will be commercialized as a Geely.

The Geely/Emgrand GC9 will be officially unveiled on November 20 during the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, prior to going on sale early 2015.
