The Celestial Empire has not seen such a daring plagiarism for a long time – we are waiting for Toyota to react.
Some Chinese car manufacturers have a long history of copying Western car designs. And it is still in use today.
The fancy SUV you’re looking at might be one of the most egregious heists we’ve seen in the last 10 years.
Photos of the car appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo. This is a “shrunken” Toyota Land Cruiser LC300 that cannot be unseen.
There are very few details about the car. Behind, for example, there is an inscription Kuluze. But there is no Chinese car manufacturer with that name. It is not even known whether this is a production model or a piece project.
The front end is almost identical to the Land Cruiser LC300 – the same headlights with LED daytime running lights, as well as a large grille with silver horizontal slats.
The height of the SUV seems almost the same as a real Land Cruiser, but it has tiny wheels. At the rear you can see the familiar LC300 taillights, an almost identical tailgate and a diffuser with fake exhaust pipes.
Whether it’s a production model, a one-off or a tuner’s creation, the design of the LC300 is completely unsuitable for a car of this size.
