This is the Chinatown Range Rover Evoque

SUV

And it’s called Landwind, no less.

If you live in a big city, chances are you know a good place togo to buy somewhat decent Chinese knockoffs of designer clothes or fashion accessories.If the quality is good, you may be able to convince someone who knows nothingabout fashion that you’re wearing the real thing. Well, if you’re into that,and also into the Range Rover Evoque, you may give this new Chinese crossover atry. The newly introduced Landwind E32 has even copied Land Rover’s logo font.

But like that “Louis Vuitton” handbag you tried to slipby your girlfriend on her last birthday, the only advantage over the original offered by the E32 has to do with its pricing. Even in China, where cars are moreexpensive than on our shores, it starts at a modest $19,175. For that money, Landwind isn't tryingto go after Land Rover’s performance numbers: the E32 makes 190 horsepower and184 lb-ft of torque from its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. Better hurry up andbuy one though, the stall may disappear as soon as a police car drives by.
