This little beauty is the cheapest car in China. It is called the Jiangnan TT. It is manufactured by Jiangnan Auto, a subsidiary of Zotye Automobile. The list price of the TT starts at 20,800 yuan but dealers offer a 5,000 yuan discount, and that brings the price down to just 15,800 yuan, or $2,415!
Buyers get a very basic car for the money; but it still seats four, it has enough space for groceries, and it can calmly cruise on the highway.

Purple pink paint was fine bar for some spots on the bonnet, plastic parts were all right, and almost everything was original.

A very hip Suzuki Alto Happy Prince, seen on a car market in east Beijing. The good Alto was wrapped in a trendy BAPE wrap and further sexed up by a black grille, an H on that grille, and red-yellow-green dots on that grille. BAPE refers to Bathing Ape, which is an ultra coolio hip hop gangsta clothes-and-such brand from Japan using similar camouflage patterns on their designs. Earlier on we met a MP-4 12C and a 458 in BAPE.
