The DENZA Z9 GT was designed under the leadership of BYD's Global Design Director, Wolfgang Egger. Although the vehicle's overall appearance is obscured by camouflage in spy shots, it's apparent that the front end adopts a minimalist design style, featuring slim, sharp headlights on either side. An air intake grille is present at the bottom, hinting at the possibility of both PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) and BEV (battery electric vehicle) variants.


The side profile emphasizes the beauty of a GT sports car, with frameless doors and concealed handles contributing to a sleek, elongated silhouette and a notably low ground clearance, achieving a grounded stance.


The rear is robust, with a subtle waistline harmonizing with the arch above the rear wheel, exuding an air of sophistication and elegance. It's likely to feature a full-width LED taillight and a broad rear bumper design.


Zhao Changjiang, the General Manager of BYD DENZA Sales Division, previously revealed that this new intelligent luxury flagship sedan surpasses competitors like the Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz S-Class in terms of space, intelligent features, comfort experience, and acceleration control. The model is expected to nearly match a moose test speed of 90 km/h and achieve a minimum turning radius of less than ten meters.
