The Beijing Auto B80V is the latest example of a rip-off design coming from a Chinese car manufacturer.

We continue to be amazed by the high number of copy/paste designs coming from China and this SUV is a perfect example. It's the Beijing Auto B80V which represents a civilian version of the military B80VJ. The vehicle will be showcased to the public in April at Beijing Auto Show where it will bring its G-Class-inspired body combined with a Hummer-like front grille and Land Rover Defender-derived headlights.

Power will come from an old 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter gasoline engine outputting just 143 bhp (106 kW) and 217 Nm (160 lb-ft) sent to all four wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. There are also talks about inserting SAAB's 2.0-liter turbo which packs 204 bhp (152 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) but chances are the chassis can't handle the power.
