Chinese Company Clones Lamborghini Supercar, Gives It a 10 HP Electric Motor

Chinese Company Clones Lamborghini Supercar, Gives It a 10 HP Electric MotorSay hello to the Lishidedidong Urban Supercar, a Chinese clone of the Lamborghini Aventador. It shows you pretty much everything that's currently wrong with the Chinese car market.

We see them at just about every major car show, with their clipboards and pocket cameras – they are the Chinese "industrial spies". In recent years, their efforts have intensified and diversified in equal measure. Some first have cloned American pickups, others British luxury SUVs.

In some cases, Chinese car clones are almost as good as the originals, but the Lishidedidong is just horrible. Yes, it's sharp and yellow like an Aventador, but that's where the similarities end. The "Urban Supercar" as this thing is supposedly called actually comes with a tiny electric motor pushing 10 horsepower and 3.7 lb-ft (5 Nm) of torque. The power is supplied to the wheels by a 72V electric motor and stored in a 10Ah lead-acid battery pack. Frankly, considering this embarrassing machine weighs 1.2 tons, the engineers are either bad at understanding what HP numbers mean, bad at making cars or both.

Supposedly, up to four people can sit comfortably inside the "Urban Supercar", but they probably need to be very small. The total load capacity is limited to 400 kg (880 lbs). But how is a 1.6 ton car supposed to move with the power of 5 vacuum cleaners or 10 blenders?

Prices start at 50,000 yuan which is less than $8000. The only good use we can think of for this thing is to buy it, put it in the man cave and let all your friends who actually own Lamborghinis laugh at it. Your local Huracan dealer probably doesn't import it, so what you'll need to do is call Lishededidong New Energy Vehicle Industry and visit the Chinese city of Yangzhou in Jiangsu Province.
