Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG is shiny Pink in China

A very happy Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG, seen in front of a hotel in the great city of Fenghua in Zhejiang Province by reader Eric, thank you for the pictures! The mighty G55 is wrapped in shiny Pink and loox overwhelmingly impressive, even more so with the giant 5-spoke alloys and black windows. Chery on the pie is the license plate reading F99999. In Chinese culture the 9 is associated with the Chinese dragon, a symbol of magic and power, and Pink Dragons are even more powerful.
Shinier than the sun. The G55 AMG is powered by a 5.5 liter supercharged V8, good for a manic 500hp and 700nm. Big numbers come only for bog money, price in China is a nasty 2.25 million yuan or 363.000 USD. The G-Class is a mighty popular chariot among China’s new rich, who basically only buy the AMG versions. We saw: black & pink, ACE limo, matte black, SWB in white, crash, and ART Streetline.
