So far, nothing out of the ordinary, expect maybe for the fact that the “Mercedes-Benz” he was driving before being pulled over wasn't sporting any license plates.
Not only that, but his car wasn't actually a Mercedes-Benz, as the multitude of three-pointed star badges on the car would suggest, but a BYD F6 modified to look like a Mercedes-Benz.
Apparently, the man was fined 1,700 yuan (approximately $280) for not sporting a license plate and illegally retrofitting his car, which was also impounded and his driver's license confiscated.
Later on, he confessed of deliberately modifying his Honda Accord-based BYD F6 to look like a Mercedes-Benz in order to give himself a sense of superiority in front of his relatives and neighbors.
Normally, reporting about a copycat car in China would be like saying that the water is wet, but this is the first time we hear of a story that ends like this.
