AutoCar’s Stuart Sutcliffe drove the new Lamborghini Huracan supercar in Spain for a serious test on fast mountain roads. Sutcliffe didn’t like the Huracan at all. He got especially upset about the electronic safety net, saying it always continues to watch even when manually switched off. Sutcliffe demonstrates the nanny’s throttle control, clearly audible while the lights on the dashboard indicate all safety systems are out. Sutcliffe thinks the Huracan is set-up far too much for safety and far too less for fun. He knows who to blame…
A big crash in southwest Beijing. A Toyota Corolla hit a Rolls-Royce Ghost full on the right-rear wheel. The accident happened on a zebra crossing in front of a hotel. The Roller has Shanghai license plates, indicating it had a long ride behind. Note hood ornament in gold. And we got a GIF from a security cam:

An interesting Jeep Patriot, Spotted in China in the great city of Chongqing by Reader & Serial SpotterNavigator 84, thank you for the picture! The Patriot is dressed up, or down, with all kinds of kinda scary WOII German Nazi stickers, including one saying ‘Heil Sieg’, which is grammatically incorrect as it should be ‘Sieg Heil’, making the whole thing look even more stupid.
There lives a strong fascination about Nazi Germany in many a Chinese mind and stickers like this are fairly common. Earlier on we saw a swastika in a BMW and another 21st Panzer on a Volkswagen. This is however, the first time we see Nazi stuff on an American car…
A very beautiful BMW 5Li-Series sedan, Spotted in China just east of the eastern section of the Fourth Ring Road in Beijing. The good Bimmer is wrapped in an eye-murdering shiny blue wrap, and sexed up to the max with Pink air vents in the bonnet, Pink mirrors, Pink door handle beds, black door handles, a black grille, black fourteen-spoke alloys, and a BMW M-style body kit that seems very similar to one we saw in Suzhou.
A tree on the move on the road, Spotted in China on an entrance to the Second Airport Expressway in Beijing. A speedy Range Rover tried to overtake but failed a many times. The tree didn’t really look safe either, wobbling around left and right.
A very flashy BMW E38 728iL, Spotted in China just east of the eastern section of the Fourth Ring Road in Beijing. The beautiful Bimmer sedan is sexed up to the max by a baby blue wrap and further prettified by white air vents on the bonnet, white door handles, and white mirrors.
A sleek ChevroletMalibu sedan, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader Anonymous, thank you for the pictures!
