SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (MyFox Detroit)
-- There are luxury cars and then there is the Snyder, which is basic by any definition.

"Does not have air bags," said John Jackman of JMJ Motors Incorporated, located 20 miles north of Detroit.

He is selling the Chinese-made Snyder for about $8,000 brand new.

"It's a 2012, 600cc, two cylinder, fuel injected.  It will get up to 70 miles a gallon, and it's a fun, fun car."

The four speed Snyder draws stares and smiles.  From behind it looks like it is either floating or missing a front end.

"I drove this down the street and I tell you what, it gets more looks than a Ferrari does," Jackman remarked.

The question -- who is the market for a sedan that's titled as a motorcycle?

"College student.  Be a good campus vehicle.  Great on gas," Jackman said.

He also sees it being towed behind RVs.  As for color, you can have it any color you want as long as it's red or blue.

    Ford Motor Co. on Sunday unveiled a new Escort sedan designed in China for global sale at a Beijing auto show that highlighted the growing influence of Chinese tastes on the industry. Automakers are looking to China's biggest auto show this year to help boost sales in this huge but cooling market. Total sales last year reached 17.9 million vehicles, but growth is expected to slow from 15.7 percent to as low as 8 percent, even as newcomers including Lincoln and Tesla enter the market.
