Talk about accidentally meeting your lookalike.The notoriously famous $19,600 Landwind X7 from China based Jiangling Motor company finally met its twin, the $68,000 Range Rover Evoque, though in a rather unforeseen circumstance. Reports suggest that a red Jiangling Landwind X7 and a red Range Rover Evoque brushed against each other in the city of Chongqing, China.
The crash itself wasn’t very serious.Nobody got hurt and the cars were only slightly damaged. Police decided that the driver of the Landwind X7 was to blame, and his insurance will have to cover the costs.
Well, at least the Range Rover won this battle.
The Landwind X7 came in news after Jaguar Land Rover filed a copyright infringement case against the chinese automobile manufacturer.But the chinese court declared both company’s (JLR and Jiangling) patents as invalid.
Chinese law pretty much always sides with Chinese business where there’s money to be made.
