blogentry-133713-0-06890300-1427510987_thumb.jpgChina comes out with a bad Range Rover clone called the Longer Yuelang X1 which is erm, kind of short. Shown last week at the Shandong Electric Vehicle Expo in Jinan City, this awkward-looking low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) has plenty of Range Rover styling clues all over it. Highlights of this clone are the 'Range' inscription up front and the 'ONEVROVER' at the back.

If you don't start from copy then how could you learn? Please go and read more about China's Auto industries.

Yes Calford, there are definitely a couple of decent cars out there built by the Chinese.

 

Maybe, if they had been more tactful when it comes to 'copying', no one would have said anything negative :)

Meanwhile, do take a look at another example of a copy and let us know whether you would be happy if you've bought an Evoque recently.

Well, if they had any integrity, at least co-operate with the original car co to co-produce a variant, instead of shamelessly ripping off the original and not crediting the source.. in the literary world, this is called plagiarism.. like faiming_low replied, you can copy a car's exterior but you cannot reproduce its original quality... I'd rather take a merc SBS bus than ride in a china car.. at least I'll know I can reach my destination safely...lol.....any idea why the china brand cars didnt take off in SG, if they were of acceptable quality and low price? Granted some chinese car co are buying other foreign branded names car co lock stock and barrel, but it'll take time, real effort and a complete discard of the copycat/fast track mentality to create a world class car industry.. only time will tell...

I know that you are using the 1st world standard to look at this. You are so much richer than those people in China. But you must try to understand why did they have to come out with this product. This is for the very poor people who want to own a car.

Though it look very similar, the review of the car was quite good in China.

    BMW Alpina B5: Comfortable Cruiser

    Who says performance cars need to come with a sporty ride? Last week we tested the BMW Alpina B5 to see if Alpina's take on the performance saloon is a viable alternative to the BMW M5. So what sets this Alpina apart? Firstly, the interior has received a host of luxurious touches to set it apart from the regular 5-series: The digital dashboard in the B5 has its own Alpina-specific design and colour scheme, for example, while the handcrafted Alpina steering wheel is made of Lavalina leather (the same leather used in Rolls-Royce cars), and features blue/green stitching. But what truly sets this car apart from the rest of the performance saloon pack is what is underneath you: With a suspension designed to deliver comfort and refinement in spades, the Alpina is not just comfortable, but sublimely comfortable. Adding to the comfortable cruise is the fact that the B5 is joyously easy-going to drive, with the lightest of pressure on the accelerator sending the car wafting rapidly down the road. With the abundance of humps and rumble strips on our local roads, would Alpina's take on the performance saloon, with its effortless and classy character, be a better suit for your everyday commute? Read our full review here!

    Pagani Huayra and its accolades

    The Pagani Huayra is one of the highly anticipated cars this year. The successor to the highly successful Zonda, the Huayra has large shoes to fill, and it didn't disappoint.   Honestly I am not sold on the styling. Though the car looks absolutely fabulous in red and I highly think it should have been the launch colour instead of the metallic silverish colour, the front facia doesn't attract me like the Zonda did. Things that I like are the active aerodynamics flaps that reminds me of airplanes, the side mirrors that were inspired by the eye of a female and the rear with the iconic 4 central exhausts. I like the the gullwing doors which is refreshing compared to the usual Lamborghini scissor doors or the McLaren butterfly doors.   The interior looks avant-garde yet flashy and loud and reminds me alot of Dutch supercar Spyker.   The one thing I can't comment is the performance, well because neither have I nor my colleagues at SGcarmart have driven one, though given the opportunity we would love to. I have been spending some time on the web reading and watching reviews of the Huayra and though of sharing 2 videos that caught my interest.   One is from the self confessed Petrol Head Jay Leno and its has Horacio Pagani himself in the video to explain the car. The second reviews comes from a guy named Chris Harris from the Drive network who shares his honest experience with the Huayra, more of a video blog style, including his initial frustrations at the Italian airport.   Jay Leno   Chris Harris

    The Mercedes Benz-M SLR McLaren is back with the.... McLaren Edition

    And while everyone was awaiting the first production versions of the new McLaren MP4-12C, McLaren re-debuts the Mercedes Benz SLRs at the recent Essen Motor Show. The Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, which production was supposed to have been officially discontinued sometime last year has made another appearance in this newly updated 25 unit limited series.   Somehow, McLaren, who used to build the SLR for Mercedes has now come up with 25 more units of the car and they are calling it the SLR McLaren edition. Not much imagination must have been used when naming the car from the looks of it.   The car features the same fabulous Supermarine Spitfire sounding 5.4liter supercharged V8 that has 620bhp and sports a new aerodynamic body kit, a modified steering rack as well as a different suspension setup. How different is yet to be seen. The color seems to be a glossy graphite gray.   No price details were made available as yet but if you missed your chance at wanting to own a brand spanking new SLR now's the chance. But if you were one of the guys who bought one thinking that you had bought the final, most sorted out and fastest SLR, then you must be cursing McLaren or Mercedes Benz for coming out with another batch of the car.   Whatever the case, you just can't keep a fabulous supercar down for long.     source:autoblog.de via worldcarfans

    Ford

    [extract] Ford of Europe has an interesting method to boost sales. The dealers sold cars to each other, without having actual customer orders. Dealers eventually sell the cars as used vehicles at huge discounts. This has artificially boosted car sales by up to 30%.   Even more interestingly, Ford
