A flashy automatic money counter, Spotted in China in a food market in Beijing. The counter is made extra pretty by the three-pointed Mercedes-Benz star and an image of a supercar on the side.

We have received a flock of photos of a secret supercar garage somewhere in the great city of Shanghai in China. Shanghai is one of the richest cities in the country, shifting top 3 with Guangzhou and Shenzhen, so there is always a heavy load of heavy metal to be seen. Starting off with the supercar of supercars; the Ferrari Laferrari. When still available, the speedy Italian went for an astonishing 22.5 million yuan or 3.67 million USD.
[update] The LaFerrari, the white Koenigsegg R, and the McLaren P1 belong(ed) to Qin Fen, alias ‘King’, who crashed the very Ferrari in Shanghai in late April. [/update]
An extremely rare Mini Cooper Mk VII Final Edition, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader BYDfortheWin (thank you!), who runs a Facebook-page with all sorts of great Shanghai metal.

The Final Edition was only made in the 2000 model year, it comes with a set of four rally lights on the bumper, white racing stripes over the bonnet, a stripe with a commemorative badge on the sides, and a top-spec interior.
A very sleek Volkswagen Scirocco sporty car, Spotted in China in the Dongba area in far east Beijing. It was one of four cars of members of the Scirocco BJ Auto Fan Club, who were apparently meeting in one of the nearby buildings. Sadly, I couldn’t figure out where exactly, otherwise I could have joined the party for a beer or two.
The first Brabus 700 has arrived in the port of Tianjin in China, from where it will move on to a very lucky and very wealthy buyer. Price is rumored to be a hefty 10 million yuan or 1.6 million USD. The mighty German monster classifies as a commercial pickup truck in China (check this Gonow), and therefore it has to have the obligatory reflective 3M tape on the sides and on each side of the bed.
A very flashy Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, Spotted in China in the Lido area in Beijing. The good Benz is wrapped in a subtle shiny Pink wrap, and further Benze’d up with dark headlights, dark windows, and extra shiny chrome strip around the windows, and sporty wheels with seven-spoke matte gray alloys.
