The quality and innovation from the Chinese car makers has never been higher than at the Shanghai motor show 2011. Particularly impressive are big coupe concepts from Icona and FAW, while the wacky is provided by Geely, Dongfeng and Changan.

Of course, there are the usual array of western clones at the show, including models inspired by the Kia Soul and VW Microbus. The Geely GS, a spitting image for a Rolls-Royce Phantom, is also back on display for another year.
