Actually, Mercedes Benz and San Storm can both sue these guys for copying designs.

i might go faster if it was a pedal car. the proportions are more like the clk.
lets see. slightly altered bmw logo, sl headlights & bumper design, the rear is renault megane, and of all things, indica/go wing mirrors?.

Nothing much... except another round of recriminations from ppl about chinese rip-offs... By the way the manufacturer 'Byd' seems to be a manufacturer of automotive batteries... all of a sudden they decided to enter the car manufacturing space! And what an entry

Why those lamps look like a cut and paste Photoshop job to me?
Forget the car, something fishy about that picture itself.

Maybe slightly offtopic.

Our retail stores used to get accessories from a Chinese vendor. We came to know by chance from a middleman that he sold the same stuff to other chinese vendors for cheap. . He lost business business from our and our sister chain stores at the moment (Dunno how much dent it will make though)

There is a big Pacific Mall run by the Chinese here dealing in Electric goods. Just to give an example, they have a P990i selling for $450. THe retail for new anywhere else Non-chinese is $650. And if you are a Chinese you will again get more discounts on $450. Wonder where they get this stuff from.
