One of our biggest pet peeves here at MotorworldHype is counterfeit products. They hurt the market and the companies behind the products they copy and they’re always significantly inferior to the originals. Sometimes counterfeits are so inferior that they are dangerous. Such is the case with a recent batch of counterfeit AC Schnitzer wheels impounded by German authorities. AC Schnitzer had the fakes tested by the TUEV and they were found to basically fall apart.
These wheels could have killed someone had they not been intercepted in time! Luckily once AC Schnitzer got their hands on them they immediately took them to the scrap yard to get ground into bits. Check it out below.
