Chinese manufacturer Songsan Motors has launched a suspiciously recognisable new model, called the SS Dolphin.
Unveiled earlier this week at the Beijing Motor Show, the designers of the hard-top convertible have apparently been inspired by the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette C1.
The Chinese copycat car is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre plug-in hybrid combination and, according to the brand’s website, can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.
It may lack a V8 but if the performance claim is true, the 1958 Corvette knock-off is quicker than the car that inspired it. The Corvette C1 took around eight seconds to reach the same speed.
