Never entered my mind to buy a 'fake' car :D I am happy with my Proton Saga FL. Wakakaa.
btw, blogwalking here dude. Cool blog. And happy Monday!
It is quite true when some people say that only China can take on the world. This time round, a car maker in China decided to take the bull by its horn by making a replica (no, not parts only. The whole car!) of a Lamborghini Murcielago.
According to the source, Lamborghinis cars are extremely expensive in China. However, one can now own a Lamborghini Murcielago SV for a mere USD 66K in China.
Although it may look at the same, from the exterior to the interior, however under the hood is not so much to scream about. While the original Murcielago is packed with a beefy 12V engine, the replica is nowhere near the real deal. Packed with a 2.2L Toyota 3S engine, producing a mere 160-200HP, this Toyota powered car will take you 9 seconds from 0-100kmh and top speed of 200kmh. Boo!
Even if the replica is way much cheaper than the original Murcielago, it will still cost you more than quarter a million. Although I would say most Malaysians can still afford it, question is, will you buy it?
