Geely GE – Click above for high-res image gallery

Just like some folks in the U.S. buy the Chrysler 300C for its supposed resemblance to more expensive machinery, Geely has designed a faux Phantom for the Chinese market. The 17.5-foot long executive mover comes loaded for bear, with isolation glass and wool carpet just like a real Rolls-Royce.

If you're interested, you better like traveling alone – the rear compartment has one center-mounted seat tucked between a contoured bulkhead, like a throne. It even has what appears to be a starlight headliner, but only above the emperor's chair. According to the Chinese site, when compared to the Phantom, the Geely GE "gives the very same feeling of luxury." It might even come with a scepter. Check out the gallery of photos below, and then let us know how to say "Wow..." in Chinese.

      Toyota is starting from copy, Hyundai also, how about they now?
      Geely is just one small Chinese private company who only built cheapest / smallest car even 2 years before, but at least they’re willing to do something (knockoff),

      It looks way too much like a Rolls-Royce knockoff for me to even regard this in any other way.

      AH! They're using one of the cliche 360 HDR backgrounds of the computer graphics world in their CG! (it does work though) It's not real! (half of all the other company's press images are just as fake though).
      Still, the concept of putting a THRONE in back, that's pretty bold.

      Look at the bright side. You can give orders to the Starfleet vessels when you're stuck in traffic.
