I thought it was just cheap turbos, charge air coolers and bypass air valves. They have taken it to an entirely different spectrum. None the less..

If I could buy a Phantom Look-A-Like for 1/4th of the price, I would. But, unfortunately for me, even the knock off is heavily overinflated sporting a $300,000 price tag. Tsk.. Tsk.. Tsk...

The knock off looks like a life sized Hot Wheels.

Any idea on the actual price? I'm curious because those numbers don't add up. 300K for a replica is neither 1/4 of the price nor a good idea. Why spend THAT much for a knock off. If you're dropping that kinda dough, I'm sure you can shell out another 50K or so and pick up a new '07 Phantom.

Yes I agree with you the Chinese will really copy anything from clothes, bags and now cars. What do they intend to copy next people perhaps??

That'll be good, "can I have 10 of her please".

We'll copy the shit outta everyone and do it for cheap, thats part of our culture. But now money is pouring into China and people there are demanding original stuff.

Eh... As long as China can't be sued, they'll continue doing it. Almost anyone would copy if there weren't consequences. It's just that China can't be sued, I guess.

Maybe some day we'll wise up and boycott their products (like when we can't afford them anymore). hmm... I wonder where this computer was made?

the irony of the situation is that capitalists are "supposedly" the least inventive. Funny to see a commie nation doing JUST THAT :orglaugh:

The thing is China has become a capitalist country now. The days of Mao's regime are long gone son so there's no irony.

China is still a dictatorship led by the communist party. Its government has allowed enough capitalism to provide in influx of foreign money to fund its economy
