Oh how we love to talk about the Chinese and their replicas. These folks will copy the Eiffel Tower and the Egyptian pyramids if it suits them in the casino business. No wait, that’s the Americans! The Chinese are better at copying cars than anything else.
What’s more, since their car market is so young compared to the establish world, their idea of an exotic can be combined well with the 2.2-liter engine out of a Toyota. We say that because one such four banger is powering the Lamborghini Murcielago SV replica from China you see here.
Apparently, the 2.2-liter Toyota engine is enough to push the Chinese Murcielago SV clone from 0 to 100 km/h in 9 seconds and on to a top speed of about 200 km/h (125 mph).
So, what’s the price of all this “performance”? It’s RMB420,000 or about €52,000 at today’s exchange rate. You’ll have to pay half up front and put up with a 5 month wait if you want one, but the good news is that they can fit a V6, V8, or even a V12 if you have the money.
