Want to buy a Lamborghini Urus but cannot afford its hefty price? Well, if you live in China, then there is some good news for you.
Huansu Auto, which is owned by BAIC, is getting ready to launch a clone of the Italian super SUV. ‘Huansu’ means ‘magic speed’, so they have the right to copy something that goes really fast. The Urus-clone was previewed in a couple of official renderings and is said to make its debut early next month.
From a visual standpoint, the Chinese copycat has a slightly different front fascia and a modified rear end that looks somewhat in the same vein as the BMW X6. Meanwhile, the design of the wheels appears to have been inspired by the real Lamborghini Urus, at a first glance at least.
Chinese media reports that Huansu Auto’s SUV will be priced between 100,000 and 150,000 yuan. The actual Lamborghini Urus is priced at a massive 3.13 million yuan in China.
Unlike the Lamborghini Urus which seats four, the Huansu clone will be offered with five and seven seats, and will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, with 150hp sending power to the front wheels.
Chinese automakers became famous during the previous decade by cloning world famous automobiles. Although most Chinese automakers have quit cloning long ago, some are still quite good at doing it. And as long as you are in China, you really don’t need to worry about copying the big brands at all.
