Here we have an extremely rare car, seen in the Sanlitun District in Beijing. This is the Iran Khodro Samand Sarir,a stretched limousine based on the Khodro Samand. The Samand has been in production since 2003 until today, it is based on Peugeot 405 platform but the body and engines (since 2009) are developed in Iran. The Samand is made by the Iran Khodro Company, aka ICKO, which is Iran’s biggest auto maker, established in 1962 in the capital Tehran.
