At an exhibition in Rizhao city, Shandong province, a promoter invited the public to have a go at smashing the front bumper of his car with a 1-meter-long steel pole. He offered prizes to all participants who could manage to bash a dent into the nose of his car. Several people took a swing, but it doesn’t look like they did much damage.
Intending to demonstrate the structural rigidity of his car, the salesman, wearing a crimson suit and blue aviator sunglasses, egged contestants on while gloating to the crowd through a microphone about how little damage they were able to inflict.
The car looks like it might be the 2015 Chinese Range Rover Evoque clone, the LandWind X7. If it really is the LandWind X7 then a few dents in the front bumper shouldn’t be too costly, since the four-wheel drive vehicle retails at just quarter of the Range Rover’s cost.
It looks to have been a smashing success.
