An manically brilliant blue Carlsson Mercedes-Benz E-Class, seen in the great city of Xiamen in Fujian Province by reader Pinut187, thank you for the pictures! The vehicle loox as fast as lightning in its shiny blue paint, contrasting perfectly with a matte black grille and matte black 5-spoke alloys sitting in racy 21-inch tires.

The Carlsson CS60 Royale has been launched at the Chinese car market and we are very disappointed. The CS60 Royale is a China-only special based on the standard Carlsson CS60 which in turn is based on the Mercedes-Benz S600. When the Royale debuted at the Guangzhou Auto Show in December last year Carlsson promised a power-upgrade to 600hp.This has sadly not happened. The CS60 Royale comes instead with the same 517hp as the CS60. Bad!

Because it is almost Christmas we have a very sexy Chinese girl with one of the wildest cars around today; the mighty Carlsson C25. The German tuner debuted in China at the Guangzhou Auto Show last month to tap into the extremely hot Chinese market for tuning and customizing.
All famous German tuners are opening shop in China and their cars are selling like hot rice. When in China Carlsson fortunately had some time for a nice photoshoot, guess it was for promotion. Girl wears a plastic uniform and boots perfect to go out fishing. Anyhow and way, here she is:
