A beautiful BlingMaserati Ghibli sedan, Spotted in China in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province by Hellen-Ge. The good Ghibli is wrapped in an eye killing shiny light green wrap, sucking the sun out of the sky, and further sexed up with darkened windows, extra shiny chrome, sporty wheels with matte gray multispoke alloys and red brakes.
A giant Teddy bear on the roof of a Jaguar XJL sedan, Spotted in China in the great city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The bear is beige with white feet soles and brown tows. The animal’s legs completely obscure the rear window.
A wild BMW 640i, Spotted in China in the great city of Jinan in Shandong Province. The good Bimmer is bimmered up with a shiny blue wrap, and further prettified by slightly darkened windows, extra shiny chrome around the side windows, a red interior, and sporty matte gray ten-spoke alloys.
A flashy automatic money counter, Spotted in China in a food market in Beijing. The counter is made extra pretty by the three-pointed Mercedes-Benz star and an image of a supercar on the side. The good machine is called the ‘Puxin A9 Benz-style money counter & fraud detector’. The characters for Benz, 奔驰, are the same as in the Chinese name for ‘Mercedes-Benz’.
A big bad supercarcrash in China. A Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a Ferrari 458 Spider hit it hard in the Datun Lu tunnel near the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing. The vehicles were involved in an illegal drag race organized by members of the Beijing chapter of the ‘Sport Car Club’ (SCC).
The Ferrari was in the lead when it hit the tunnel wall with its side, causing the vehicle to spin. The chasing Lamborghini tried to evade the Ferrari but hit the barrier instead.
We have all seen the glitter and glamor of the the Shandong EV Expo (intro) in Jinan City, but what are these low-speed electric vehicles like in real life in a real city? Well, I wen into town and found a few, and they weren’t very fancy at all.
Starting with this very basic Huaihai Fuxing 13, fitted with a cabin without doors and a cargo box. These crappy cabin-cargo conversions are mostly done by small local companies operation on neighborhood level, and this example looked the business.
A very sleek Volkswagen Scirocco sporty car, Spotted in China in the Dongba area in far east Beijing. It was one of four cars of members of the Scirocco BJ Auto Fan Club, who were apparently meeting in one of the nearby buildings. Sadly, I couldn’t figure out where exactly, otherwise I could have joined the party for a beer or two.
A very flashy Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, Spotted in China in the Lido area in Beijing. The good Benz is wrapped in a subtle shiny Pink wrap, and further Benze’d up with dark headlights, dark windows, and extra shiny chrome strip around the windows, and sporty wheels with seven-spoke matte gray alloys.
Another Ferrarisupercarcrash in China. This time we have a red Ferrari 458 Italia hitting a pole on a highway near the great city of Hefei in Anhui Province. The driver lost control over the vehicle on a wet road when overtaking, he spun around several times before hitting a lamp post pole, crashing in some bushes, hitting another pole, and finally came to a stop on the right lane on the road.
