A very colorful Volkswagen Jetta, seen in central Beijing by reader Jacco B., thank you for the picture! The jolly Jetta was wrapped in a surprising combination of matte orange, matte purple, matte yellow, and matte green, and is further sexed up by racy tires with sporty double-four spoke alloys, fake air boxes on the bonnet, red tinted headlights, black windows, and a huge green wing on the back. A true work of art this Jetta is!
The Volkswagen Jetta MK2 was made in China from 1991 until March this year when it was finally replaced by the all-new Jetta. The MK2 was an extremely popular car, loved for its fault-free character and pure basic transport functionality. It also was, and likely will be for a long time to come, very popular to make-more-pretty.
A Type 05 self propelled howitzer, seen casually mixing with traffic in the great city of Suzhou in Jiangsu Province. The Type 05 is the largest mobile land-based weapon of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Its giant 155mm gun fires 10 rounds per minute over a distance of 50 kilometer. The Type 05 joined the PLA in 2007, at least 200 units are in service. Most are deployed in China’s north east, facing the Chinese-Russian border.
Another brutal super car wedding in China, this time in the great city of Shanghai. The traffic jam starts with at least six Rolls-Royce Ghosts, all in black and all dressed up with fake plastic flowers.
It has been a while since we last saw a true super car wedding. Sometime over 2012 the practice became frowned upon with many sour souls saying flaunting wealth in such an extreme way wasn’t cool and such. Well, debates on morality aside, we like to see more super cars!
Here is Canadian goth-rock chick Avril Lavigne, selling Chinese ice tea on the back of a electric tricycle, seen in a small village up in the mountains in north west Beijing. Avril squats on a skateboard, flying high above a giant city that seems to be exploding.
An extremely sleek and extremely stealthy BMW M6, seen in the great city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The speedy Bimmer is wrapped in a manic matte black wrap, and further sexed up by racy tires and six-spoke matte black alloys. In front of the M6 stands a China-made Audi 100 of old.
The E63 M6 was made from 2005 until 2010. Power came from a screaming 5.0 V10 with 500hp and 520hp, good for a unlimited top speed of 333km/h and 0-100 is gone in 4.2 seconds. Price in China was a steep 2.29 million yuan or 373.000 USD. Earlier on we met a license (468M6), a very lucky M6, and another matte black example.
Today in China Car Girls a super sexy Chinese chick checking out the optional sun roof of a BMW 320i. She seems to like the sun roof. The girl is dressed in a white t-shirt, blue shorts, and not much more. The BMW 320i is painted in white and bog standard. Babe and Bimmer both live in Beijing. Click on Pics for Bigs™. Not very NSFW.
A very smooth Ferrari 458 Spider, seen in the great city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The fine 458 is painted in a spectacular duel-tone combination of dark gray wit a light gray roof, all contrasting coolio with the huge yellow brakes. The best thing however is the license plate, reading OD458, and that is one of the best license plates we have seen on a Ferrari 458 in China.
The 458 Spider is powered by a screaming 4.5 liter V8 with 570hp and 540nm, good for a 325km/h top speed and a 0-100 in 3.4 seconds. Price in China starts at 4.43 million yuan (715.000 USD), and the plate will add at least another 10.000, if it is real…
Today in China Car Girls a super shiny Chrysler 300C with two super shiny girls, seen on a rather local tuning show in the great city of Nanjing in Jiangsu Province. The Chrysler is a well-known Bling machine in China, going to all the parties, I met it earlier on a tuning show in Beijing.
Today China celebrates the 64th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Congratulations and cheers! On pic President Xi Jinping (center) enjoying himself at the traditional anniversary reception in the Great Hall of the People in central Beijing. The whole country is on National Holiday until August 8 so new car news will be thin, but we will fill up this space with loads of Spotted and other fuzzy wuzzy things. Greetings!
A heavy loaded Geely MR Merrie sedan, seen on a highway in Beijing by reader Lao Wei, than you for the picture! The old Merrie is packed to the max with all sorta vegetables, mostly cabbage-kind. The vehicle is likely on its way to a local market. The Geely MR Merrie series debuted in 2000, loosely based on Tianjin Auto Xiali, which was a licensed copy of the Daihatsu Charade. The MR came as hatchback, notchback, and sedan. The platform also underpinned the Geely HQ pickup truck series, which seems a better choice for ferrying veggies around town…
