Does anyone know if they sell cars outside of Italy?

I only saw the DR 5 once in real life while it was driving in Berlin but it had an italian number plate. :think:

Not sure about other countries because the official page is only in italian. BUT dr would have no chance in Germany. After the Brilliance disaster in Germany we are afraid of chinese cars.



One man who lives on the island of Sylt once decided to sell cars from Gonow. It was a disaster - again! So you see we are a little bit bugged when getting to this topic.

I know your comment is five years old and i also know that chinese cars have improved after those two disasters happened (both in 2007). But thats life. You get a bad reputation and you will have it until you "die".

The Jiangling Landwind crashtest result wasnt popularised? I saw some ADAC stickers on it too, and in comparsion the Brilliance is a very, very safe car. It was a chinese copy of Opel Frontera - front wheel slammed into cabin that crushed dummy´s legs and lifted the dashboard, resulting that driver airbag missed, and dummy crushed its head against steering wheel.

I read that Sylt article years ago in Czech version of Auto Bild, and it looked dumb at a first glance.

The Landwind disaster was made public in Germany too of course. It was like the car tried to hug the driver...

Seriously, if anyone wants to commit suicide, he just needs to buy a Landwind. This crash test was so "funny", that i included the Landwind X9 in my secret service parody "Chinese Project: A new World". I am currently working on a Prequel because the whole world died in the first book. The first book is set in 2011 and so i have to find another chinese car built before 2011 to make a joke of it. The title is "Chinese Project: Above and Beyond" making an obvious joke of Land Rover ads.

None of the cars on this page are still sold, except for the City Cross which has been facelifted.
