Chinese auto giant Changan has been able to set yet another Guinness World record to its name, this time with its 1.5 liter Blue Core engine.
In late December 2020, Changan challenged the “Longest Live Video Broadcasting” Guinness World Record and unleashed the true power of its 1.5T Blue Core high pressure direct injection engine.
From 16th to 25th December, Changan’s Blue Core engine challenged the Guinness World Record title of “Longest Live Video Broadcast” held at Chongqing Changan Automobile Global R&D Center.
