The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is a gigantic SUV for conquering vast deserts and oceans. Some however like to use it in the city, like the police corps in the great city of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province which kills crime in this great second generation Prado VX. They got a good taste there down south, earlier on I found a first-generation Lexus LS400 police car in exactly the same area.

An Audi R8 with engine problems, seen by a friend of reader Josh F. in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province, thank you for the picture! This friend told Josh that the Audi had temporally license plates issued in… Beijing, and that it drove the whole way from the Capital to Shenzhen. Flying distance is 2000 kilometer, but the actual driving distance is about double that.
A hell of a road trip! Hopefully it just needed some oil. Local police was at hand to protect to Audi from the local populace, across the street a heavily pimped Audi Q7 with bike racks.

A black Mercedes-Benz W140 S-Class motorcade car, seen somewhere in Shanxi Province in China. This kinda vehicle is used to drive in front of a VIP vehicle and behind normal police cars who usually head a motorcade. The W140 is still used a lot by police services for convoy duty, earlier on we met a very similar vehicle in Qingdao. Other W140 from China: S500, crash, body kit, S500 in white, S600, and another S600.

A still very smooth Tianjin-Xiali TJ7101 police car, seen, where else?, in the great city of Tianjin where the Xiali factory stands. The Tianjin-Xiali is based on the 1983 Daihatsu Charade, production in China started in 1986 and continues until today. The Xiali TJ7101 was made from 1999 until 2007.
The vehicle seems small and underpowered for a police car but for sure it was very cheap, the base model went for 30.000 yuan and came with a tiny 1.0 three-cylinder, good for a 110km/h top speed, so the bad guys need at least something faster than that…
