Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

It is the most mind blowing clone so far, inspired by four different models of different car manufacturers. Will the makers get away with it?

In the land of Adios shoes, Mikes track suits and Dolce Cabbana it’s no wonder a large number of cars are copycats, too. But the A 106 is a real treat: from different angles it seems to be a copy of different cars.

From the front it is no doubt an Aston Martin Cygnet clone. The headlights are a bit different, but the grille is an obvious copy. In the place of the winged logo there’s an oval Dojo badge that seems to have been written by hand - wait till the legal department of Ford sees this. From the side, the A 106 will remind you of something else: a Suzuki Alto on tiny wheels. Now please add that the Aston Cygnet is a Toyota IQ in disguise, and we have four car manufacturers sure to take legal action, should the copycat ever be marketed outside of China.

The 3.52 m long, almost 800 kg car made by Jiangsu Dao Jue is driven by a 13.4 PS electric engine. It has a top speed of 50 km/h and a range of 120 km. Connected to a standard 220 V socket it takes 8 hours to recharge the battery to 80%.

You’ll never make it with that piece of junk

What a day! I'm checking out my new ride. I hope it won't disappoint me. After all, it's a 40 year old Peugeot, so what can go wrong?
