2009 Bangkok International Motor Show - Chery
What motor show would be a motor show without a few funny cars? And the 2009 Bangkok International Motor Show had a few very funny cars. Chinese automaker Chery with the Faira gets my vote for the silliest car of the show.
This two-seat mini roadster concept got a lot of attention, and despite a politely worded sign, and a slightly less polite Chery employee requesting that people keep their hands off, most people went ahead and tried to break it.
Based on the platform of the Chery Something-or-other, the Faira is trying to be cute. The interior looks like it is taking some design cues from Mini, but somehow it doesn't quite manage to pull it off. There are too many things about it that just look cheap.
