This loox like a cheap China-made toy inspired by the Mercedes-Benz SLK sportmachine, but it is not. It is in fact an expensive China-made mobile phone inspired by the Mercedes-Benz SLK sportmachine.
Note Benz-star on the left. It is a GSM-phone with a 2.2 inch color screen, a built-in MP3 player, a 1.3 megapixel camera, a standby time of 15 to 22 hours and bluetooth support. They call it, likely to avoid copyright problems, the ‘S280’. Maker is a company called Fengchi from Guangdong Province. Price for all this pretty: 798 yuan, or 127 US dollar. This SLK mobile phone reminds us of a less crappy but more expensive phone inspired by the Bugatti Veyron.
Phone comes in a racy box, 220km/h here.
“Ni hao! What..?! Honey!, I am calling with my Benz!”
