Beijing: China has test-run its latest high-speed train that can reach a maximum speed of 500 kmph.

The train is built by China`s largest rail maker CSR Corp. Ltd., Xinhua reported Monday.

Ding Sansan, the company`s chief technician, said the train design was inspired by China`s ancient sword. The bodywork uses plastic materials reinforced with carbon fiber.
