It has the Range Rover name on the bonnet, a Range Rover grille, a Land Rover badge, and it looks like a Range Rover Evoque. But it isn’t. This instead is a Landwind X7, a clone of the Evoque, fitted with fake badges and painted in a classy light gold.

Revenge! A Range Rover Evoque crashed into its clone; the infamous the Landwind X7, hurting it a little bit. Both cars are red so we can see once more how much the X7 looks like the Range Rover. The accident happened in the great city of Chongqing. The Range Rover has Chongqing license plate, whereas the Landwind hails all the way from Guangdong.

Reuters reports that Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is suing the Chinese automaker Jiangling Motor (JMC) for copyright infringement and unfair competition. JMC is the largest shareholder of Landwind, the maker of the controversial Landwind X7, which is a near-perfect copy of the Range Rover Evoque.
Is JLR going to win? Based on looks alone they sure should, as the photos below will prove. But this being China; there is more than meets the eye.
