Chinese car industry… shows off rip-off cars
Sorry, two posts on China in one day, I’ll give them a rest until next week, promise!
I couldn’t resist this… Shanghai International Auto Show…
If you look (at the linked slide show) every Chinese made model is a rip off of something else, can’t the Chinese design anything orginal themselves???
Slide 1 – I assumed this was a BMW, actually it’s a ‘Brilliant FSV’
Slide 2 – actually a real Porchse
Slide 3 – no, those aren’t Mazda’s, they’re ‘Chang-an’s
Slide 4 – a ‘Chery Riich’ (their spelling not mine) not a Toyota Yaris
Slide 5 – I have no idea WTF that is, but don’t panic, it’s a concept car
Slide 6 – a real Lambo
Slide 7 – A Rolls Royce? nup, really, it’s a ‘Geely GE’ complete with a Rolls figure on the radiator grill!
Slide 8 – A “Red Flag’ concept car, not a… god knows.
Slide 9 – Mini (didn’t the Chinese buy Rover?) & 10, a Ford (who are still in business aparently.
Slide 11 – That has to be a Mercedes right, I mean re badged right? No, that’s a ‘BYD S8’ which wins the prize for the most brazen knock off of the lot!
