VinFast officially unveiled its latest President model on Monday - a limited edition SUV with only 500 vehicles.

With a 6.2L V8 engine, a maximum speed of nearly 300 km/h and exclusive luxury detail, the VinFast President is one of the most powerful commercial vehicles in the world. This car is an example of the production capacity and outstanding level of VinFast just two years since it launched.

The VinFast President is priced at VNĐ3.8 billion (US$164,000) exclusively for the first 100 cars in Việt Nam's market.

“VinFast President'' means "car for a leader". This car is a masterpiece from VinFast aimed at pioneering customers who have the capability to lead, influence, share vision and grow on the same path VinFast is pursuing.

The model has a 6.2L V8 engine, 420 horsepower and maximum torque of 624Nm. Combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission and a full-time 4-wheel drive system, the VinFast President can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of nearly 300 km/h.

Along with powerful accelerating, the model also has hi-tech safety features, such as emergency Brake Assist (BA), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Roll Over Mitigation (ROM), blind spot warning, lane departure warning, six airbags and a 360 degree camera system around the body. Safety systems of the highest quality were the most important design requirement, asserting the class of the VinFast President.

In terms of the exterior, VinFast President has a majestic, elegant and powerful design. The embossed veins on either the capo or the sides give the car an aerodynamic beauty, along with iconic details such as front and rear LED strip lights, and the V-shaped logo.

The grille is designed in a diamond shape to accentuate the model, while the large air cavity on the capo enhances the car’s strong appearance. The highlight of the VinFast President’s rear is a pair of sporty large dual exhaust pipes, which effectively support the V8 engine to achieve optimal performance.

In addition to the basic points, the VinFast President also impresses with luxurious and sophisticated details covered in gold, copper, bronze, gun metal or metallic silver finishes on the logo, roof rack, door braces, car steps, wheel, front and rear bumper, etc. While the VinFast President is limited to only 500 units, customers can customise with up to 18 colours according to their preferences.

In terms of interior, with a segment-leading wheel base of up to 3,133 mm, the VinFast President has exceptional enjoyment space, wide door frames, large opening hinges and a maximum enlarged second seat row. The roof comes with a large, dark, UV-resistant panoramic sunscreen. In addition, the steps are specially designed, and the armrests in the second row come with cup holders, wireless phone charging, and a convenient USB charging port. An illuminated VinFast logo is also fitted within the car.

All seats are covered with premium Nappa leather from exclusive suppliers Eagle Ottawa with embroidered lines inspired by the V-shaped logo. VinFast is also offering either a brand new interior leather package called Cotton Beige or premium veneer wood made in Italy. With a natural vortex structure, the wooden finish on each VinFast President will have a completely different pattern, ensuring the exclusivity of each car.

Besides the refined interior, the VinFast President is also preeminent in user experience. The two front seat rows are equipped with massage, heating and ventilation modes for the owner to fully enjoy the highest quality at every moment.

The entertainment space is upgraded with a large 7-inch multi-function display cluster, a centre screen of 12.3 inches and 13 high-end speakers. All these details bring a quality which follows the mission of "car for a leader" to the VinFast President.

Standing Deputy General Director of VinFast Nguyen Thi Van Anh said the VinFast President was a product line that represented the high class and quality of VinFast.

“It is also our affirmation to the world of Vietnamese automobile production capacity. We want to dedicate this wonderful product and VinFast's top-notch customer care services to Vietnamese people who have a pioneering and strong spirit. That is also the reason why VinFast has only produced a limited number of 500 cars to ensure this masterpiece is worthy of its owner,” Anh said.

VinFast will display the President model at showrooms and dealers across Viet Nam for customers to visit, experience and make orders from September 7. — VNS
