For all the luxury German saloons shown revealed at the Beijing motor show, it is always the madcap creations of the domestic Chinese manufacturers that really catch the eye.
First seen at the Shanghai motor show last year, the real head-turner at the show is Geely's 'Rolls-Royce' clone, known as the CA7600L. At almost six metres long, the car is bigger than a Rolls-Royce Phantom and has been facelifted for 2010; new features include a 1950s-style front grille and headlamps.
One of the other striking Western clones from the Chinese firms is CH Auto's 'Ferrari 599'; other interesting cars from the show include BYD's Lexus RX-style S6 and its Mercedes SL-style S8.
Geely's other show star is the Englon TXN concept; this is its interpretation of the iconic London black cab. Huatai has also shown off two new saloons known as B21 and B11, while one domestic firm showed off a modern-day Reliant Robin.
It's not just Western clones on the stands, however. There are plenty of original concepts, including the British-designed MG Zero concept and the Roewe E1 electric car. These two were displayed alongside the Roewe 350. IAT has also shown off its Ford Puma-inspired Wifeng II, complete with gullwing doors.
