Very few people would have heard about the smallest and cheapest SUV of India - Premier Rio. Premier Rio is also from Chinese Orgin Zotye Nomada. It comes as CKDs to Pune where they are assembled. It is alleged that Zotye Nomada is copied from SUV Terios of Daihatsu.
Yup. Force One is a no exception. It's Chinese origin car named Guangdong Foday Explorer.

Even the Evoque isn't left unaffected. Sigh. This Chinese replica of Range Rover Evoque is called Landwind X7.

Someone in China has now gone a step ahead and developed the replica of a car which is yet to launch: Pagani Huayra Roadster.

Just after the Land Rover saga, now Audi A6 is the Copy target for the Chinese.
Chinese automaker JAC is testing the clone of the Audi A6 in China.

The craziest part of the Chinese A6 is the power under the hood unlike the exact engine, company has powered it with 1.5 litre turbo engine and says that it is capable of churning out 170 hp and 250 Nm, which is more of a counterfeit statement.

Looks like rather than focusing on R&D, it's who will copy which car first competition between Chinese Auto manufacturers err.. photocopiers. This is what happens when you have a business err.. photocopy man in every other street. :D
