The Chinese automaker Geely, which was mentioned a couple of days ago in one of our articles that stirred some controversy among our readers, has just released some photos of their latest high-end luxury model: Geely GE.

As soon as the first photos hit the web and the inbox of many auto publications, the stories about a Rolls Royce clone have started to flow around the internet. The general consensus was and still is that the Geely GE resembles the RR Phantom model more than it should.

Beside the exterior design approach identical to the Phantom, the 17.5-foot long GE comes loaded with isolation glass and wool carpet just like the “real deal”. To differentiate themselves a bit, the interior design gets a central single rear seat, similar to a throne.

To give Geely some credit also, the GE does not get suicide rear doors seen on the Rolls Royce Phantom models.

The Chinese luxury vehicle will make its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month, but the questions remains if BMW AG’s lawyers are going to be busy for the next few months….
