Spotted In China: Trasco 1000 SEL W126 Mercedes-Benz Stretched Limousine

Here we have an ultra rare  Trasco 1000 SEL, a stretched limousine based on the W126 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL. There is a flag pole holder on the left-front fender, just behind the indicator, indicating this is an ex-government car.

I found the enormous machine standing outside of a rather crappy car repair shop just south of the Third Ring Road in Beijing. They said they were restoring it but I didn’t see much work going on. The paint was obviously in poor shape, but the body itself was fine, no rust or rot in sight, so a good new paint job will do miracles here.

The Supercars Of The Guangzhou Auto Show In China And What They Cost

The Guangzhou Auto Show is running at full speed, and racing along are a lot of supercars. All major manufacturers were present with the notable exception of McLaren. The Guangzhou Pearl River Delta area is one of the richest places of China with trillions being made by exporting everything to everywhere.

That means a big market forsuper cars and the cities in the delta are full with dealers and shops. Many manufacturers that enter China start in Guangzhou before moving on to Shanghai and Beijing. Guangzhou was also the very first city in China to have a sizable population of supercars. The boom started early in the late 1980’s with cars smuggled in from Hong Kong, some with the wheel on ‘wrong’ side.
