Chinese car manufacturer Geely has recently launched the Geely GE, which looks remarkably similar to the Rolls Royce Phantom which costs around 250,000 pounds. It’s been reported in various media like The Telegraph, but I have to take my hat off to Ride Lust who get WoAi’s prestigeous prize for most hilarious headline caption!
The funniest thing about the car though is that unlike the genuine Rolls Royce Phantom, the designers (I use the term loosely) of the Geely GE decided to put just one throne-like, centre-mounted seat in the rear, so it’s a bizarre 2 + 1 arrangement. Any miniscule incling I might have had for this car just went out the window. I like to ride in the back with at least 2 of my honeyz, with Tommy riding up front. I’m not going to buy a car where I have to sit back there alone.
If you’re interested in more, The Telegraph did a photo gallery from the Shanghai 2009 Auto Show of several Chinese knock off cars and a very amusing Bentley logo ripoff. Enjoy!
