One would think that with all of the fun people poke at China for being such blatant copycats, that they would learn that originality is what will dominate in the car world. What is their latest act of plagiarism? China’s first ever supercar named the Aculein. Does it look familiar? Of course it does! It’s nothing else, but a cheap copy of a masterpiece: the Ferrari 599 GTO.

The supercar - named after the poisonous tip of a scorpion’s tail - is powered by a BMW sourced 4.8-liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 367bhp and 361lb ft of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 5.2seconds and is capable of a top speed of 167mph.

Don’t let the name fool you. We doubt that this car will launch an aggressive attack, unless, of course, someone else does it first. That is their style, isn’t it?

I like the girl instead of the car, the girl has a unique beauty but the car is just a copycat.

The structure of this car is almost the same of Ferrari 599 GTO. I think the Ferrari will only differ by its performance and speed.

So it’s the start of copying super car such which the 599 is already into production. I hope it can perform well and safe.

huh? another car from china? so they are really serious in getting into automotive industry, but IMO china cars are not that reliable as the Japanese, korean, Euro and Us cars.

Also, 5.2 seconds is hardly of supercar standards unless it is paired with exceptional handling as with the RX-7 or NSX with similar acceleration, but I doubt that this thing handles much better than Grandma’s Buick.

It looks like a RX-8 and R34 Skyline got busy to me.

You obviously need your eyes checked if you are calling this a copy of the Ferrari 599 GTO. Sure it kinda reminds you of the 599, but you can also "see" some a Z4, any Aston Martin and even the SLS in it. Why? Because it’s a sports coupe. They all look alike.

And your comment about Chinese automakers... Misinformed. There are over 100 of them in China. You can’t control them all, honey. Contrary to popular belief, most of them don’t copy.
