A beautiful blue Nissan Qashqai, seen in the great city of Xiamen in Fujian Province by reader Pinut187, thank you for the pictures! The good vehicle is wrapped in matte blue and made even more pretty by matte black bumpers, lights, windows, grille and alloys.
An extremely Bling BMW M3 sedan, seen not far from the Third Ring Road in central Beijing. The speedy Baoma is wrapped in eye-killing gold and made even more pretty by a body kit, black headlights, black rear lights, black windows, huge six-spoke alloys, and a DTM wing at the back.
A very sleek Audi R8, seen in the great city of Shanghai. The fast vehicle is wrapped in matte black with some orange, and further sexed up by black rear lights, black exhaust pipes, and gigantic shiny five-spoke alloys. License plate is very good too, with 6 being a lucky number in China. The base Audi R8 is powered by 4.2 liter V8, good for 420hp and 430nm.
A very inventive home-made vehicle seen in the great city of Shantou in Guangdong Province. The vehicle consist of two electric scooters welded together with a steel sub frame. The driver sits in the middle, race car style, and changes direction with a large steering wheel that replaces both scooter steers. Best if all is the roof. Rain indeed ruins many a fine scooter ride! The roof slopes down and so multifunctions as a giant wing for extra down force. Great invention!, drive safe…

A very interesting crash seen yesterday morning on the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing. A blue flatbed truck carrying a giant tree had smashed into the back of a small silver minivan. I didn’t see much damage on either vehicle and the tree was fortunately unharmed.
The sky is very blue here in Beijing today, time thus for a very blue Mini Clubman, with a very pretty brown-eyed Chinese girl opening all the doors. She must be looking for her trousers! Click on the Pics for Bigs™. Slightly NSFW.
The Ferrari 458 Italia China Limited Edition was launched on the China supercar market in June 2012 for 5.58 million yuan each or 879.000 US dollar. Only 20 examples were made and so far we met only two on the road. A second hand supercar dealer in the great city of Nanjing has 1/20 for sale, with only 1 (one) km on the clock and priced at 4.88 million yuan or 795.000 US dollar.
That’s a depreciation of 0.7 million yuan or 84.000 US dollar in exactly a year. So much for the perceived ‘value’ of limited editions Ferrari’s in China…
A very hard crash involving a Ferrari 458 Italia in the great city of Chongqing in China. The 458 apparently hit a taxi full-bang in the back. The taxi driver suffered minor injuries and the Ferrari driver was unhurt. The taxi was a yellow Suzuki SX4 sedan that seems basically undamaged except for a part of the rear bumper that fell off. The 458 however, doesn’t look that good…
A very sporty Ford Transit van, seen in the suburbs of the great city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The fine vehicle is modified with a giant wing on the roof for more down force, speedy stickers will make it faster still and air vents on the C-pillar finish the job. The fifth generation Ford Transit is still in production in China, called ‘Classic Transit‘, made by the Jiangling-Ford joint venture that also makes the seventh generation Transit, called ‘Transit‘. China skipped the 6th.
