    It probably *IS* the real manufacturer of those Lamborghini parts.

  2. ChinaSucks says:

    Chinese companies again shamelessly steal the designs of other companies. Yet they cry when some western company a hundred times bigger than them even remotely the same name as a local chinese company.

  3. ChinaSucks says:

    China is really a center for stealing and cloning other people’s work and design.

  4. i don't get it says:

    If it doesn’t have that massive Lambo rumble under the hood, and have that amazing feeling of power when you push the accelerator, then it’s going to feel exactly like driving a Toyota.

    Lamborghini has nothing to worry about.

    Now: If they can make a 100,000 yuan version with a killer engine… then we’re talking…

  5. Mat says:

    This was not designed by the Chinese at all
    It was developed in the UK they have just stolen the kit that is all.

  6. Paulo says:

    As pessoas que compram replicas podem andar livremente nas ruas?

  7. ChinaSucks says:

    Probably worse than the car designed in India.
