A racy red Rayttle E28 low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV), Spotted in China in Beijing by Reader Sam Faulkner, thank you for the pictures! The Rayttle E28 is a perfect clone of the Renault Twizy EV and it is becoming quite popular in the capital, with several shops selling them now for about 28.000 yuan ($4300).

Here I have something very special for you all, something never seen before on this website, a first generation Oldsmobile Silhouette. But first, a bit of history. During the 1990’s, General Motors developed a platform called the U-Body specifically for minivans, such as this Oldsmobile.
Other names under which this van was sold included the Pontiac Transport and the Chevrolet Lumina APV. Quite a few Chevrolet versions were imported into China by foreign companies and are found relatively easy on Weibo. The Pontiac is not so common but the Oldsmobile is by far the rarest, a quick Weibo search yields only two results.

Here we have the sad, sad remains of what was once a very proud 8th generation Buick Roadmaster, built sometime between 1991 and 1996, now left to rot in the wilds of Wuxi as a flowerpot and a rubbish bin. Wheels sadly stolen, the once proud Roadmaster has to lie on its belly in shame.

A black Ford Mondeo M2000 sedan, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader BYDfortheWin, thank you for the pictures! The Mondeo M2000 has a unique story. It is based on the first-generation-facelift (Mk II) Ford Mondeo sedan, and fitted with a shiny grille in style with the Mercury Mystique.

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 the final series of the original Mini Mk VII, which was manufactured from 1996 until 2000. 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.
