Land Rover Discovery is matte black in China

November 10, 2012 by W.E. Ning

Here we have a fine matte black Land Rover Discovery, seen by a pengyou in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangzhou Province. The stealthy Disco carries two sets of license plates, one set for China and one set for Hong Kong, which is very near to Shenzhen. Although part of China Hong Kong is still ‘separate’ in many ways, it got its own legal system, its own little government and cars still drive on the wrong side of the road.

Spy Shots: Chevrolet Sail EV to be called ‘Springo’ (?)

Spy Shots: Chevrolet Sail EV to be called 'Springo' (?)

New spy shots from the Chevrolet Sail EV indicate it will be called ‘Springo’. This could however also be a new brand name. When the ‘Sail EV’ debuted as a concept on the 2010 Guangzhou Auto Show it had a new S-shaped logo on the bonnet, leading the intense speculation that Shanghai-GM was planning a green-energy brand.

GM and SAIC didn’t say anything and the concept had a normal ‘Sail’-badge on the back, just like the car we saw on the most recent spy shots in September. Now we know more… S, Springo; it fits. Springo (Spring, go! (?)) also sounds kinda green. But what a weird name it is!

Spotted in China: Smart Roadster

Spotted in China: Smart Roadster

A fine red Smart Roadster seen in the great city of Putian in Fujian Province. The Roadster was made from 2003 until 2006 but was never officially exported to China, how this red example ended up all the way in Putian is therefore a mystery. Still, we are happy to see it because the Smart Roadster was one of the coolest little sportcars ever made. Very light, engine in the middle, and rear wheel drive! Mercedes-Benz killed the Roadster and Roadster Coupe after only 43.000 examples were made, because the warranty costs were deemed to high. A very sad end for a very great car…
