Attack of the Clones! China’s Lamborghini Urus rip-off

It is well documented the Chinese regularly rips off western and even Japanese carmakers’ designs, from the Porsche Macan to the Lexus IS. Now, they have upped the ante with this Lamborghini Urus clone.

Build by BAIC owned Huansu Auto, the C60’s front fascia is unashamedly a copy of the Italian super-SUV. The resemblances continue with fender vents, shoulder line and taillights featuring the same signature LEDs.

The five-seater Chinese SUV sits on a 2,815mm wheelbase, which is just 187mm shy of the Lamborghini Urus.

While it may look expensive, the C60 is estimated to cost between 100,000 and 150,000 yuan ($A20,805 to $A31,207) when it goes on sale in China – a fraction of the cost of the Urus.

Instead of a 484kW twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, C60’s customers make do with a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit producing 145kW of power, ensuring that they pose no threat to the Urus.
