Two times the Smart ForTwo Jeremy Scott Edition, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader Pinut 187, thank you for the pictures! The Smart ForTwo Jeremy Scott Edition is a very rare car. Only ten were made, and only five came to China. This Hong Kong Plaza, a very expensive shopping mall, apparently snapped up two examples. Back in 2013 the Jeremy Scott went for a massive 388.000 yuan, or $62.500 in today’s money.
Happy New Year! We are kicking off 2015 with an interesting crash in the great city of Chaozhou in Guangdong Province where a Porsche Panamera 4S hit a pond. The accident happened in heavy rain on a square in front of a college building. The Porsche was parked at at the edge of the square, see black and white cars in the background, and when the owner tried to drive away he somehow lost control of the vehicle, causing it the end up semi-submerged.
A speedy Porsche Cayenne, Spotted in China by Reader Anonymous in the great city of Shanghai, thank you for the pictures! The good Porsche is wrapped in an eye murdering matte baby blue wrap, and is further porned up by darkened windows, extra shiny chrome strips around the windows and on the B-C-D pillars, shiny chromed roof rails, a fuzzy body kit with a large open grille and four tiny fog lights, and shiny gray five-double spoke alloys with red brakes.
A speedy Porsche 911 Turbo Supercar, Spotted in China by Reader Anonymous in the great city of Wuxi in Jiangsu Province, thank you for the pictures! The good Porsche is wrapped in an eye killing matte baby blue wrap with a separate shiny wrap at the front, and is further porned up by matte chrome winglets in the bumper, matte chrome rims around the headlights, shiny chrome mirrors, chromed license plate frames, shiny chrome air inlets, an all-red interior, darkened windows, and mean looking shiny black five-double spoke alloys with light green brakes.
A fiery red Ferrari 458 Italia supercar, Spotted in China in an underground parking lot in the great city of Shanghai. The good Ferrari is fitted with a red interior and slightly darkened windows. Best of all however is the license plate; reading A·458E6, and that is one of the best license plates we have seen on a Ferrari 458 in China.
A lunatic Lincoln Town Car, Spotted in China in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. The giant American limousine is painted, no wrapping here!, in froggy green, and further leaped forward with henna-tattoo style decals over the rear deck and roof and sides and bonnet, and an absolutely brilliant spare wheel cover in a custom made chromed platform at the back. But check this:
Many commenters are seriously wondering whether the Heavens are sending a signal to China that the limitless spending-craze of the newly rich has gone out of hand. Chinese are deeply superstitious and divine signs are seen everywhere and always, but in this case it is hard not to wonder about why. Five on one day!
On the first photo a white Lamborghini Murcielago SV LP670-4. It crashed into a barrier in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. The vehicle is registered in nearby Hong Kong and has the steering wheel on the right.
A Porsche 918 Spyder supercarcrashed on the streets of Shanghai in China. The accident happened in the early hours of Thursday18-12 on a narrow road near the super hip Xintiandi bar & restaurant area. The speedy Porsche slammed into a tree on the right side of the road. Reports from the scene say the vehicle was driven by a ‘female friend’ of the owner, and that she mixed up the throttle and the brake, causing the Porsche to crash.
While in Guangzhou we went for a visit to the local Emgrand dealer, and came away slightly confused. Emgrand started as a sub-brand under Geely Automotive, it then became a halfhearted stand-alone brand, and now it will be morphed back under Geely as the ‘Borui’ brand, which will continue to use the Emgrand logo. The other sub-brands, GLEagle and Englon, will be phased out someday, but when exactly is unclear.
On the first photo the new Geely Emgrand GX9 Pride SUV with the new Emgrand logo on the bonnet, standing in front of a backdrop with a Geely Emgrand EC7 with the old Emgrand logo, and flanked by the Geely GLEagle GX7.
We continue our coverage of the Supercar Day at the Goldenport Circuit in Beijing, China. The event happened in early December when temperatures can reach minus 09 Celsius, but this year is extraordinary warm with a very soft exactly zero at midnight in Beijing today (we are in Guangzhou now, 15 degrees at 23:57) . Still, it seems very clear the girls are kinda cold.
