Who says Twitter is good for nothing? Making fun of derivative Chinese car designs (cough Geely cough) is like shooting fish in a barrel. Only the barrel has no water in it, is only six-inches deep and you're using a shotgun. Still, we're thinking this Jianghuai sedan might be taking a cake or two. Obviously, the front end is a bit much. And looking at the car in profile, the Jianghuai isn't just influenced by the Infiniti G35 -- it is the G35. Stare harder at that C-pillar if you don't believe us. But why completely rip off one car when you can jack two? Make the jump to check out the this Jianghuai's pilfered rear.

Interesting -- Mercedes-Benz never told us they switched the trunk badges of E350s from three to five-pointed stars.

      I bet Brian will love this car.

      Looked like a Chinese counterfeit gone wrong.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Horrible. I will see it for sale at the local mall... in Italy, Chinese cars are sold in department stores, like the lawnmowers.

        People buy Chinese cars in Italy? Really? I remember reading scathing reviews of Ssangyongs when I lived there, but I don't remember seeing anything Chinese. I guess the world has changed a lot in 8 years, but I didn't think most Chinese marques were competitive in the European market yet. I'd rather drive a 10-year-old Panda (or the '93 Tipo GT I had when I lived in Italy) than this repulsive monstrosity.

        Feh. Serpents in the Garden of Eden. At least some of the Brilliance models on the page are just blah and not actively ugly like most of the others listed. Only one or two get near the level of ugly of this Jianghuai beast, though.

        Yes we are importing some models, but it's not a big market. Mostly customers complain about quality and lack of service. Here is a web page with the list of the imported Chinese cars (in italian):

      That is one of the ugliest front ends I've ever seen on a car. It's like they couldn't decide which brand they wanted to copy.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's not ugly, it's HILARIOUS.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It really does bring a Class 5, or "Mazda-3-rivaling" smile to my face.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I agree, this is good material. I'm going to bookmark this so that I can come back here any time I need to put a smile on my face.

      Goddamn.

      Note the fact that the front and rear door trim doesn't line up.

      Chinese craftsmanship at its finest.

      • 5 Years Ago
      THE WORD IS "GRILLE"!!!!!
      • 5 Years Ago
      You can't just come out with design like that. You have to try hard to make it so ugly.

      Mitsuoka did a similar thing to a Infiniti M35/Nissan Fuga create the Galue.

        Top gear actually did a segment on it. The interior is pure Infiniti M, even has the Infiniti drivetrain.

        ... sort of what I was thinking, is this a Chinese Mitsuoka? Pics of the black one have Merc like nose and is missing tailgate spoiler (note the C200 badge, lol - absolutely no shame). Pic at head of post is just too small to tell definitively, but is the headlight fairing separate piece sitting atop the front wing (fender)? Something funny going on at the rear edge of bonnet / base of A-pillar.
