China's First Lamborghini Urus Rip Off May Actually Look Decent

SUV

It was only a matter of time until this happened.

In a world where Chinese automakers can get away with literally copying designs from brands such as Jaguar and Land Rover, what’s to stop them from continuing? Certainly not lawsuits because what good are they when the Chinese government is protecting its own? Car News China has uncovered what appears to be a pair of renderings of the first Lamborghini Urus rip off. The automaker in question is called Huansu whose cars are manufactured by Beiqi Yinxiang Automobile.

We’ve never heard of it until now, but it’s supposedly a joint venture between Beijing Auto Industries Corporation (BAIC) and Yinxiang Motorcycle Group. Huansu is said to mean “Magic Speed,” but it’s reportedly not targeting the more affluent Chinese buyers in major cities like Beijing and Shanghai. The fake Urus’ name still hasn’t been announced, by Car News China believes it’ll be powered by a 1.5-liter turbo engine with around 150 hp, around 500 ponies shy of the real deal. Both five- and seven-seat versions will be offered as well. Looking more closely at the renderings compared to the Urus itself, the front ends are fairly similar but not identical. Nor are things from the side.

The Huansu lacks the Urus’ aggressive rear fenders, though it does have a vent just beneath the A-pillar,like the Urus. Set to debut early next month, the unnamed Huansu SUV is to cost around 100,000 to 150,000 yuan, or roughly $15,500 to $23,000. The Lamborghini Urus has a starting price of 3.13 million yuan, or around $488,000 in China.
