Today in China Car Girls a very sweet Chinese girl hanging around and over the famously fake China-made Volkswagen GTI. Let’s hope she is more real than the car. The girl is wearing a necklace, a blue coat, a gray miniskirt, and not much else. The fake Volkswagen Polo GTI is painted in white.

A very sporty Volkswagen Polo hatchback, seen in a faraway suburb in east Beijing, not far out of the Fifth Ring Road. The fine Volkswagen was wrapped in a matte orange wrap and sexed up further with a body kit, darkened windows, black racing stripes, and black 6-spoke alloys.

The Volkswagen Polo GTI has been launched on the Chinese car market, it is made in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. But it isn’t a real Volkswagen Polo GTI, it is severely handicapped, or fake. The European Polo GTI comes with a 180hp 1.4 TSI, the Chinese GTI however comes with a much older 1.4 turbo that poops out only 131hp.

Volkswagen will launch the ‘Polo GTI’ on the Chinese car market on September 19, it will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show that starts later this week. However, this ain’t no real Polo GTI. It loox the same as the European GTI but is has a very different engine. The European Polo GTI comes with a decent 180hp 1.4 TSI, the Chinese Polo GTI will have to do with a 131hp 1.4 turbo, a much older engine which is confusingly (not by accident, we think) also called ‘TSI’ in China.

An Aston Martin? Ferrari? Spyker maybe? No Sir! This indeed is the highly customized full-leather interior of a Volkswagen Polo that resides somewhere in southern Guangdong province. It must have cost a lot of money and a lot of work, but the result is a true work of art.
