A beautiful black BMW 525i sedan, Spotted in China near the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The good Bimmer was in good shape with fresh looking paint, shiny chrome, all parts attached, and no obvious bruises or rust. The E35 BMW 5-series was manufactured from 1987 until 1996, it was never officially exported to Chia so seeing one on the road is a rare pleasure.
A very fuzzy Porsche Cayenne S, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The good Porsche is fitted with a very Chinese body kit, including a confusing bumper section with many a bar and many a light, low slung side bars with fake air vents in the rear wheel arches, and fake air intakes in the bonnet.
A beastly Volvo C202 utility vehicle, Spotted in China on a classic car festival in Taoranting Park. The Volvo C202 was manufactured in Hungary from 1977 until 1985. It was primarily designed a a military vehicle but it was also sold to civilian customers.
A massive Hongqi CA770 state limousine, Spotted in China on a classic car festival in Taoranting Park. This is the very rare ‘CA770JH’ variant, which is an ambulance. The stretcher goes trough the trunk and the patient lies in the rear comportment. This great example is black and has a flagpole, indicating it served as a motorcade car.
Time for some fatass American metal. Here we have a red C4 Chevrolet Corvette and a tenth generation Cadillac Eldorado, Spotted in China side by side on a tuning show in Beijing. The vehicles belong to members of a rather feisty local tuning club, heavily involved in illegal street racing and night-drifting competitions.
A very pretty Volkswagen Beetle, Spotted in China in the great city of Fuzhou in Fujian Province. The Beetle is covered with over 10.000 five-mao coins. Five mao, or half a yuan, equals 0.08 USD, making for a total of $800. The five mao coin is gold colored, shining nicely in the autumn sun.
A fiery red Ferrari LaFerrari supercar, Spotted in China on the Goldenport race track (wiki) in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province by TFCSC. The vehicle was parked in the pit lane but sadly didn’t see go racing, leaving that to the usual bunch of tuned up Sciroccos and such.
A very feisty Fiat Coupe, Spotted in China on a car market in the faraway suburbs outside the eastern section of the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing. The sporty Fiat is painted in gray and further fracked up with darkened windows and a kinky white pillow just below the headrest of the driver’s seat. This kinda rests are common in China where drivers are often of a smaller size than elsewhere, and the head just doesn’t make it high enough.
A stealthy Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet supercar, Spotted in China on the Beijing Tuning Street. The good Porsche is wrapped in an eye smothering matte black wrap and further porned up by darkened windows, a black convertible roof, extra large tires with five-triple spoke matte gray alloys, and an all-red interior.
A ferocious Ferrari 512 TR supercar, Spotted in China in the great city of Chongqing by a friend of Reader Colin, thank you very much for the pictures! A very special spot indeed because this is the very first 512 TR we have ever seen in China. It is an interesting car as well, with the secondary lights covered in black.
