Always, keep dreaming. This is a Suzuki Wagon R, dressed up as a Cayenne 733i, seen in Beijing by reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pictures! The connection with the Cayenne isn’t that strange, the Wagon R is, after all, an SUV as well. The 733i badge however, is a bit puzzling…

A Suzuki Swift dressed like a first generation Subaru Impreza WRX. Painted in ‘World Rally Blue‘, Subaru-style gold painted alloys, a huge hood scoop and even the front spoiler is similar. Only the head lights are out of style but altogether a great idea. Seen on the China International Auto Parts Expo (CIAPE) in Beijing. The Suzuki Swift is made in China by the Chang’an-Suzuki joint venture, just last week we met a fine matte orange example.

Here we have a very pretty matte orange Suzuki Swift, seen by me in the great city of Dalian in Liaoning Province. The wrap is kinda creative, taking the bumpers and mirrors, but leaving the front-window frame and roof in black. The sides of the roof however, are orange again. Great work with an eye for detail, check the Suzuki logo on the grille.
