68Land Rover to lodge complaint with China over LandWind's Evoque copycat

Despite its position as a communist state, the People's Republic of China has taken a decidedly laissez-faire attitude towards copyright infringement. It's why, as evidenced in an old episode of Top Gear, you can buy a fake Omega, wear fake Ray-Bans, talk on a fake iPhone and drink at a fake Starbucks. It's also why Chinese automakers so shamelessly rip off the designs of western automobiles (exhibits A, B, C, D and E). Land Rover is the latest automaker to take exception to this practice.

15Jaguar Land Rover opens first overseas factory in China

43Landwind E32 is a shameless Chinese Evoque knockoff

1Jaguar Land Rover calls in handful of vehicles over suspension bolts

With most recalls seemingly affecting mass-market vehicles, it'd be all too easy to assume, consciously or otherwise, that higher-end automobiles never face such issues. But the main reason we don't see the NHTSA recalling more luxury automobiles isn't because of their quality, we'd postulate: it's because of their relative scarcity.

7Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic is a metallic orange mouthful

Land Rover raised a few eyebrows when it announced the Range Rover Evoque Autobiography Dynamic. Besides adding its most prestigious trim to the entry level Range Rover, the Dynamic boosts the performance of the Evoque's 2.0-liter, turbocharged mill.

6Land Rover ups Evoque power and prestige with new Autobiography trims

After less than three years on the market, Land Rover has managed to sell 270,000 units of its Range Rover Evoque around the world.

Last week, we were puzzled by the emergence of a set of patent drawings reportedly filed in China that depicting a monstrous, rally-spec Range Rover Evoque. And now we seem to have our answer.

Land Rover may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of racing, but the British off-road marque has been known to send some of its machinery off to the rally raid circuit – usually prepared by Bowler and based on the evergreen Defender.

28Land Rover boosts U.S. allotment of hot-selling Evoque
