BYD s8 copy CLK mercedes-benz
It’s no secret that the Chinese are masters at producing cheap knockoffs; everything from fashion to electronics, and recently even cars. Just like Gucci or Prada, Mercedes-Benz is one of the brands that is often copied. The one copy that stands out the most, and is probably the best one, is a copy of a CLK Cabrio. It’s from BYD (Build Your Dreams), yes that is correct, the same BYD that Mercedes-Benz has entered into a partnership with to produce electric vehicles in China. It’s very interesting to see that a manufacturer like Mercedes-Benz has chosen to work with them instead of suing their ass off (like that would have resulted with anything). The S8, as they call it, is proudly displayed on the BYD website that is packed with info for your enjoyment.

Here are more examples of copied Mercedes-Benz designs.
