A very beautiful C4 Chevrolet Corvette coupe, painted in fiery red. Sadly, the iconic Vette has been abandoned and it is in a very bad shape. The badges are gone, the tires deflated, the left pop-up headlight is broken, and the poor car is covered under a thick layer of dust. I found her in northeast Beijing, outside the Fifth Ring Road, not far from the film museum. It was only when I came home that I realized I had seen this Chevrolet before:
An almost perfect Fiat Croma, Spotted in China in the far east of Beijing. The good old Croma looked like new, with a clean body, original down to the wheel covers, and without any rust or rot. The only thing annoying were the plastic-bullet strips on the corners of the bumpers, but even they looked period.
We have seen a many endlessly long car transport trucks but today we have a new King of Country, and likely of the World. This enormous monster was Spotted in China near the great city of Xiamen in Fujian Province by Reader Jos T., thank you for the pictures! The truck seems about 30 meters long and doesn’t really fit in one frame.
A very scary truck, Spotted in China late at night on the southern section of the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing by Reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pictures! The truck is transporting a shipping container but the container is too wide. It sticks out about 30 centimeters on the left side of the flat bed.
A beautiful blue Buick Royaum sedan, Spotted in China in the far eastern hinterlands of Beijing. The good Buick was very dusty but otherwise in good shape. The Royaum is a very rare car, it was only sold on the Chinese car market in 2004 and 2005.
A black and beautiful Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman stretched limousine, Spotted in China near the Goldenport race track in Beijing. The big Benz was in very good shape and basically looked like new. Paint and shine were perfect and everything was original, down until the optional AMG alloys.
On a recent tuning show I came across an impressive collection of rare Audi rally and road cars. Most of these cars arrived in China with the 2015 Hong Kong to Beijing Rally, and somehow never left. The rally was sponsored by Audi China and by FAW-Volkswagen, the joint venture that makes various Audis and Volkswagens for the Chinese market.
A beautiful blue BMW 316i Compact, Spotted in China on a parking lot near a former Audi dealer on a car market in Beijing. The good Bimmer was dusty but otherwise in a good shape, and clearly still used as a daily driver. The Compact was a notchback variant of the E36 BMW 3-Series, it was designated E36/5.
An ultra rare Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed China, Spotted in China on a parking lot in east Beijing, looking very well in white. The Speed China was a special edition for the Chinese market, launched in 2010. It came with a lot of goodies and special.
