The new Lincoln Continental has been launched on the Chinese car market. China is only the third country in the world to get the new Lincoln flagship after the United States and Canada, underscoring the vital importance of China for the Lincoln brand.
Sales are on the up even without the Continental. In the third quarter of this year Lincoln sold 20,988 cars in China, plus 191% compared with the same period in 2016. Lincoln is getting very close to Infiniti which sold 29,000 cars in Q3. They are catching up with Cadillac (77,028), but still very far away from Audi (440,023), BMW (371,976) and Mercedes-Benz (344,791).

We have new photos of the Lifan Xuanlang MPV, a clone of the Ford S-Max like there is no other. Even the alloys are very Ford-like! The wheels are idiotically small. The Lifan Xuanlang will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show later this month and launch on the Chinese car market in March.

This is not a Ford. This instead is the first image of the new Hawtai Lusheng E80, a midsize sedan that will be launched on the Chinese car market next year. Hawtai took a good look at the Ford Taurus and copied the hood, grille, lights, bumper, A-pillar, and even the mirrors. Sadly we cannot see the rest of the car but we bet it will be Ford all along.

This little pretty is a new mini van by JMC, the Jiangling Motor Corporation. It has a daring front end, looking very much like a Stormtrooper. But is this van just as dangerous..?

And the cloning continues. The latest example is this Lifan Xuanlang MPV, which looks far too much like a Ford S-Max. The proportions are the same, overall design is the same too, and so are the roof line, windows, the bonnet, the lights, the ‘Aston Martin’ grille, and even the alloys.

A very racy Ford Fiesta S sedan, Spotted in China in the Lido area in Beijing. The good Ford was in a fine shape but in need of an urgent cleanup inside and out. Happily, paint and body looked strong, there was no rust or rot in sight, and all was original down until the speedy five-spoke wheels.
