On February 6 police arrested a man driving a Mercedes Benz or at least from the outside it looked like a Mercedes Benz. The car had Mercedes Benz on the license plate. But it turns out the car is fake and is actually a model made by the Chinese automotive manufactures, BYD. The owner had just added some Mercedes Benz accessories to the outside.
Mr Zhou explained that he’d “pimped his ride” because he wanted to impress his family and friends when he went home for Chinese New Year. He wanted to appear to be a “successful person”.
At present the car has been impounded, Mr. Zhou has been fined 1,500 RMB for making unauthorized changes, 200 RMB for the license plate, and 12 points were deducted off his drivers license. Not looking quite so successful now, are you Mr. ZHou.
