An extremely beautiful NissanCedric V-30 SGL, Spotted in China on a road in the northeast of the capital. The old ‘San was in a near-perfect shape, loved and well taken care for. Paint was smooth and chrome was shiny, no serious damage and largely original.
An ultra hip Audi A1, Spotted in China on a busy street in Beijing. The good Audi is wrapped is two wraps: a shiny Pink one for the lower body and a carbon black one for the upper body, making for a great combination of colors. Only letdown are the standard wheel covers, something shiny or black would have been better.
A very pretty BMW z4 sporty car, Spotted in China in the capital Beijing by Reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pictures! The good Bimmer is wrapped in an eye smoothing shiny Pink wrap, and further sexed up with darkened rear lights, a Pink-white BMW badge, and shiny exhaust pipes. Best of all is the license plate reading N·541Z4.
A very sleek first generation Mazda 6 wagon, Spotted in China in front of a Mazda dealer in Beijing. The good Maz’ is painted in a shiny kind of gray and in a very fine overall condition, bar for some damage on the front fender and bumper.
A beautiful black Hyundai Equus JS350 sedan, Spotted in China in front of a Hyundai dealer in Beijing. The good Hyundai was in a perfect shape, smooth in paint and shine, completely original, and without any rust or busts. The massive grille is impressive, especially with that…
An beautiful Isuzu Trooper SUV, Spotted in China in the Lido area in Beijing. The good Trooper is an an absolute top condition, perfect in every way. It looks like it rolled out of the factory an hour ago! Paint and chrome smooth and shiny, everything original, and no rust or busts in sight.
The very first Tesla Model X has been seen on the road in China, pictured here in the wet in the great and rainy city of Shanghai. This particular car is a 90D, painted in a blue kind of silver and fitted with privacy glass around the rear compartment. The Model X was launched on the Chinese car market in early May and deliveries will start late this month.
The 90D retails for 961,000 yuan, the P90D for 1.15 million yuan, and the China-only Signature Red does a whopping 1.47 million yuan. That translates to $147,000, $176,000, and $225,000 respectively. For comparison, in the U.S. the 95D costs $95,500 and the P90D $115,500.
The enormous difference is caused partly by import taxes, counting for about one third of the price, and partly by healthy entrepreneurship. Chinese car buyers are very eager to pay more to get their hands on a Model X, and Tesla is well aware of that.
A silver white Volkswagen Passat GL Wagon, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader Antoine Chalendard, thank you for the pictures! The wagon appeared to be abandoned but it doesn’t seem to be in a very bad shape. Diplomatic plates mean that the vehicle belongs to a consulate.
