Yes, the Shuanghuan CEO is officially banned from being sold in Germany because BMW won a court case against them in 2008; saying that the Chinese manufacturer copied its X5 SUV. However, the car is actually on sale in the other parts of Europe.
Fast forward to present day, one of Germany's automotive publication, Autobild decides to buy one of these fakes to see how well the car has aged in its five years of usage. .
Not very well actually. Many parts either rusting or corroding away. The electronics seem to be failing too as the ABS does not seem to be working and there are even dead flies in the headlights. Based on a second generation Mitsubishi Montero/Pajero, it uses one of Mitsubishi's old 2.4-litre inline four to push out an insufficient 123bhp.
Convinced that the CEO is one their worst cars ever tested, Autobild then sends the car to its final resting place with some explosives. Admittedly, we felt rather good watching it go up in flames...
