The Halloween Car Thread

Recommended Posts

So this isn't a Dream Garage thread or anything, but in keeping in spirits with it being Halloween, post up some of your favorite cars that you think pair nicely with this kinda-sorta-holiday.

 

Maybe you think they just have a sinister, dark look or demeanor to them. Maybe they were offered in color schemes that befit the occassion. Whatever the reason, post 'em up!!

I'll start.

 

I always thought the LF-A kinda looked like an angry jack-o-lantern. Which I totally love. It's one of all-time favorite cars. Not to mention that V10 banshee wail!

All the Chinese "replica" cars.  They are wearing European and US counterparts costumes.

Arriving back in 2007, you can genuinely buy this in China. It’s called the Shuanghuan CEO and it looks like flagrant copy of the BMW X5. The courts didn’t seem to think so, though, as BMW lost its lawsuit against Shuanghuan.

The GE looks like someone has described a Rolls-Royce Phantom over the phone, with the person at the other end of the line sketching it out: big grille, standy-up emblem on bonnet, swooping roofline, statement lights and a long old wheelbase. Something must have got lost in translation with Geely’s “Roller.”

The JAC Motors 4R3 (catchy name) looks familiar, doesn’t it? That’s because it takes its styling cues from one of the world’s best-selling vehicles ever – the Ford F-150 pick-up. To such an extent that Ford actually blocked JAC from releasing the vehicle, hence the low-res spy shot here.

We imagine this is what China’s version of Arnold Schwarzenegger tools around in. Yes, the Dongfeng EQ2050 is a fairly obvious (and fairly good) rip-off of the original Humvee.

It seems Lifan is aiming to pack its range out with cars that look like European equivalents. This is the 330, and if we didn’t know better, we’d say there was a poster of the Fiat 500 in the Lifan design department.

China is even going after European supercar designs now – Audi R8, anyone?
