Sichuan Yema’s Lamborghini Concept Leaks Out The Back Door

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The Lamborghini Urus SUV was a much talked about concept when it first came to the Beijing Auto Show last year, so much so that plucky Sichuan based car company Yema wanted to bring the Urus to the people at a more affordable price than the expected 5 million RMB the new SUV was expected to command in China.

Previously at the 2012 Chengdu Auto Show, Yema unveiled a rash of cloned cars one of which was a copy of the current Volkswagen Tourag which has already been through the Chinese patent office indicating that a launch isn’t too far away. That particular model is powered by a 1.5T Mitsubishi engine that might struggle to pull such a weighty car, but it is highly likely that the same powerplant will land in this Urus inspired car.

So which will come first, the Urus or the Yema? And what platform is it based on? Yema’s first car was based on the 1980′s Austin Maestro platform which had been bought and sold by a few different companies before landing in Yema’s hands, that model went onto become a small second generation Subaru Forester clone that has sold ‘okay’ in second and third year cities across China’s rural belt. Is this the Austin-Lambo mash up we have always dreamed about? We hope so.

    Holy crapazola! What next! A Lambo copy on a ferked old Maestro platform and a 1.5 donk to trickle it along!!! I hope that you are NOT serious with the “Is this the Austin-Lambo mash up we have always dreamed about? We hope so.” comment! Its not a mash up-its a ferk up! And the people at Yema should be shot and so should the idiots in the patent office that condone and allow this stupidity to continue! China will never be a world player and will always be seen as a joke on the international markets if this crap continues. GET REAL!!!

    Wow, this is the so called improvement that Chinese automakers are supposed to be doing? Seems like whether big or small, copying is the order of the year for Chinese automakers. Literally, I’ve seen babies with more creativity and originality then some of this Chinese “automakers”.

    Not a bad looking car (I see some Evoque from the side as well ) but the engine is going to suck and the quality and engineering will be 2 decades gone. This is likely just going to be another Hawtai Baolige story, although I’ve seen some of those around.
