Mitsubishi EVO X is very Low in China

A very low Mitsubishi EVO X, seen on a sunny day in Beijing. The speedy vehicle was made even more fast with a fatass bodykit which bring the EVO very close the road. White alloys very racy, grille all-black and a huge wing at the back. The Mitsubishi EVO X is officially imported into China, priced at a steep 498.000 yuan or 80.000 USD. Base engine is a 2.0 turbo with 300hp and 422nm, but this red racer likely has a few horses more. We met some more EVO in China: pimped EVO 8with girls, in gold an with a big wing.

Spotted in China: T180 Toyota Celica Liftback

Spotted in China: T180 Toyota Celica Liftback

A very rare and very red Toyota Celica Liftback, seen parked next to red BMW 1 in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province. The fifth generation ‘T180′ Toyota Celica was made from 1989 until 1993. It was never exported to China but some cars arrived via diplomatic or gray channels. The T180 was available with a 1.6, a 2.0, a 2.0 turbo and a 2.2. The Shenzhen car seems a low-spec variant and is thus likely powered by the 1.6. This red example is the third vintage Toyota Celica we meet in China, after a T180 Coupe and a T200 Liftback.
