WorldCarFans is reporting that chinese automaker Geely will unveil their new Emgrand EC6-RV at the upcoming Shanghai auto show. They also point out something probably completely obvious to most MotoringFile readers. Does this car look familiar? Let’s take a closer look.

The dimensions are similar and that white roof is definitely smuggled from Oxford. We’ve seen asian MINI clones before and this one isn’t particularly remarkable, but it does have me thinking about car design. Take a close look at this car, my friends. This is what the MINI would be if BMW didn’t have a design team that really cared about the car’s heritage, and about standing out in the marketplace. This is what a MINI looks like without a soul. Behold the chinese zombie MINI!

Special thanks to Kirk for sending this in.
