What a coincidence! In China, there was a strange crash in which a Range Rover Evoque with its Far Eastern copy the Jiangling Landwind X7 collided. The two-car accident are almost indistinguishable at first glance.
That in China are sometimes quite boldly copied cars like the Range Rover Evoque and rebuilt, is no secret. The vertigo is then only really piquant when both models, so original and Asia-replica, meet on the road. A shameful moment, but who passes quickly. Unless both cars are involved in an accident. This is exactly what happened now in the Chinese city of Chongqing, where the driver of a Landwind X7 on its British counterpart, the Range Rover Evoque met and collided with it. At first glance, both cars are hardly tell apart because they also share the same bright red paint in addition to their optical similarities. Even otherwise, the visual differences between Range Rover Evoque and Landwind X7 are only cosmetic. Here is another brand logo, there is a slightly modified Stroßstange. The startling similarities continue in the interior of the X7, which is also copied boldly as the two-liter turbo under the hood. However, the performance drops quite different, because the 240hp of the Range Rovers, the X7 not hold a candle with its 190 hp. More information: The craziest China cars
