Nanjing Yuejin, local partner of Fiat and Iveco have come up with another ugly car.
China = maker of ugliest cars in the world.
Italy= makers of the most beautiful cars in the world.

Even italy could'nt force china into making a good looking car.

About the car , i quote from the site:

One of their products, called the Eagle is essentially a slightly updated Seat Ibiza Mk I. It was introduced in 1999 and by 2003 increasing competition meant that only 518 units were built.

Recently Nanjing Yuejin teamed up with Ningbo Bird, one of the biggest Chinese mobile phone makers. Ningbo Bird, as many other companies would like to participate in the lucrative automobile business. Easiest way is to form a partnership with an existing company and that's what Ningbo Bird did.

The Eagle was updated, new features were added and from April it is being produced as the Soyat (sounding similar to the local prononcuation of Seat). This year 12000 units are planned to be produced and a few new models are also in the pipeline.

Wow. Limited numbers as the Enzo. This will make these Chinese cars very rare and very precious.
