Here we have an ultra rare Trasco 1000 SEL, a stretched limousine based on the W126 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL. There is a flag pole holder on the left-front fender, just behind the indicator, indicating this is an ex-government car.
I found the enormous machine standing outside of a rather crappy car repair shop just south of the Third Ring Road in Beijing. They said they were restoring it but I didn’t see much work going on. The paint was obviously in poor shape, but the body itself was fine, no rust or rot in sight, so a good new paint job will do miracles here.

A very dusty W126 Mercedes-Benz 280 S, Spotted in China on a car market in east Beijing. The good old ‘Cedes was sadly abandoned but absolutely savable. Under all that dirt was a good car, no rust or rot, mostly original, and painted in a very rare light green color.

A beautiful Mercedes-Benz 560SEL sedan, Spotted in China on a piece of empty land near a near-dry river in Shunyi District in Beijing. The poor old Benz is sadly in very bad shape and abandoned, left there to rot! Who on earth, or in China, would do such a horrible thing..?

Spy shots showing the brand new Mercedes-Benz S600 on a flatbed truck in China. The vehicle looks very dusty and is likely a test car. The S600 debuted yesterday on the Detroit Auto Show and will debut in China on the Beijing Auto Show in April. China is expected to become the largest market worldwide for the S600 so Mercedes-Benz wants to make sure it behaves well on Chinese roads.

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class has arrived in China. One black S500 was spied at Tianjin Binhai International Airport, fresh from the air and still on its pallet. The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class will officially debut on China on the Chengdu Auto Show in September.
