Chinese Automaker Unveils a Lamborghini Urus Knockoff
Chinese companies have a reputation for liberally taking inspiration from other company’s products, and the Lamborghini Urus is the latest victim.
Huansu Auto, owned by BAIC, has unveiled its C60 Hyosow, which looks very similar to the Lamborghini Urus. Although it isn’t completely identical to the Italian exotic, it’s painfully obvious where most of the C60’s design elements come from. Surprisingly, however, some might argue the C60 actually looks better than the Urus, with toned down bodylines and softer edges. One thing is for sure, Chinese automakers are getting much better at copying designs without ruining the entire vehicle.
Besides its looks, there’s very little else the C60 Hyosow shares with the Urus. For starters, pricing is expected to be between 100,000 to 150,000 yuan, which equates to around $15,605 to $23,410 USD. And don’t expect it to be particularly exciting to drive, as the Chinese media reports it’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with around 195 horsepower.
Expect more details when Huansu officially debuts the car on June 6.
