These are the very first pictures of the Brilliance It’s Me concept car. The It’s Me was expected to debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April last year, Brilliance even distributed an official photo to the press. But for some yet unknown reason the It’s Me never appeared. The reason might be that reactions at the time on the styling of the vehicle were less than positive, to say the least. Whatever why, the It’s Me was gone, until now.
When two exhaust pipes, or four, are not enough you can always have six, like this Brilliance FRV hatchback that was spotted near the great city of Xiamen in Fuzhou Province. The real pipe sits hidden on the right side under the body work. A pipe-end like these can be had from some 25 yuan on car parts markets. The FRV is further heated up by a 4.0T badge, black lamp covers, a kinky license plate holder, and three interesting fins on the roof, likely for more stability at high speed…
The very first spy shots of the new Brilliance BS6, aka Zhunchi. Strangely each shot shows only a part of the vehicle, so we are probably looking at clay models here. The new BS6 is scheduled to be launched on the Chinese auto market in late 2013.
Saturday we had pictures of a fine young lady making it out with a snake on the Guiyang Auto Show. Turns out she isn’t very faithful, here she is with a crocodile! She is changing employers too, she was with Chang’an with the snake, now she is with Brilliance, heating up a croc on the hood of a Jinbei S30 mini SUV. An interesting lady this is… Click on Pics for Bigs™. Very NSFW after the jump, but allowed in China on a public auto show, so how bad can it be?
This might look, at least to the untrained eye, as a Nissan GT-R racemachine. But it is not. Instead, this is a Brilliance Coupe with a very fat body kit and painted in some sorta purple. Great effort!

This is a BYD Flyer with fake BMW and Type R badges, seen by reader ‘Buzzt’ on a local highway in Zhejiang Province, thank you for the picture! The BYD Flyer was the very first BYD-branded car, production started in 2004 and continued until 2008. It wasn’t that much of an automobile. Small, cheap, crappy and very slow. The owner’s idea to make it look more up-market is therefore perfectly understandable. But a ‘BMW Type R’? That indeed is a bit too much.
The Brilliance H320 hatchback and H230 sedan will be launched on the China auto market in early September. The H320, pictured, is a facelifted and renamed Junjie FRV, Brilliance is also working on a facelift for the Junjie FSV sedan which will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November.
Dig. Here we have a very coolio Brilliance BS4 painted in orange, seen very near to the actual exhibition hall of the Auto Tuning Car Show in Beijing. That day I was there, with reader Kael, and we walked around the vehicle, checking the orange and such and such. Now, almost a week later I check my pics and see something very confusing. Note green alloys…
