Last year we had spy shots of a new Roewe W5 Open Police Patrol Car, based on the Roewe W5 SUV. Happily, it is in production now, and they are selling to police corps all over the country. Above the new fleet for police in the city of Fuzhou in Fujian Province.

A very special car today in China Car History. This is the one and only Beijing-Jeep 2002, seen in the magnificent and now sadly closed Dalian Classic Car Museum in the great city of Dalian in Liaoning Province.
The Beijing-Jeep 2002 was a prototype for the successor of the famous Beijing Auto Works 212, a 4×4 utility vehicle used by the Chinese armed forces, it was built in 2002, hence the name. The competition was a bit muddy as all the entrants came from various parts of the Beijing Auto empire!

Last Thursday was a party day because China celebrated the 70 years anniversary of the end of the Second World War. For the first time ever the celebrations were dressed up with a badass military parade, designed to impress enemies and customers alike. Star of the show was, without any doubt, the mighty Hongqi CA7600J parade car.
On the first photo president Xi Jinping standing behind the microphones, leaving the premises of the Forbidden City via the center gate of Tiananmen. Behind Xi the spare parade car, following closely because you never know. Xi’s parade car does not have a real license plate but a seal of the People’s Republic of China. The spare car has a military license plate reading VA·02015.

This is the big black badass Sabertooth Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) for the Chinese police. Four of these law-enforcement monsters were officially launched for duty by the authorities in the great city of Hefei in Anhui Province, with a lot of thanks to the United States of America.
