New Lifan 530 is hiding in an alley near the Shanghai Auto Show

The new Lifan 530 will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show that starts on Saturday. A brand-new blue example was strangely spotted in an alley near the exhibition center. Did it loose its way?

The Lifan brand is virtually unknown in the big cities on the coast, but Lifan is doing good business is second and third tier cities where price is still the most important consideration when buying a car. The Lifan 530 will fit right in; it is cheap, powered by old engines, and loox like an (old) Toyota.
