Hongqi CA 7600L Parade Car

This mighty Hongqi CA7600L Parade Car is a piece of Chinese history. It is exactly this car, with numberplate 京V•02009, that was used by President Hu Jintao during the 1 October 2009 military parade in Beijing. Since 2009 this car has been all around China where it stood at several exhibitions and was also used for dealer events. Now it seems finally back home, on display right in the middle of the FAW factory in Changchun. FAW, First Auto Works, is the owner of the Hongqi brand.
