Shanghai-Volkswagen Exports to North Korea

Published on March 10, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter

This pic was taken during a visit from a delagation from Myanmar to a militairy base in North Korea. The honoured guest were driven around in at least three Shanghai-Volkswagen Passat Lingyu sedans. The Passats have North Korean militairy plates with a red star and a black number.

The head of the delegation and his North Korean counterpart did a bit better, they were driven around in the old stretched Benz S-class you see on the very right. To be fair to Shanghai-VW; it might have been the Chinese government who bought the Passats and gave them to their “all weather friends” from North Korea.

    This time you are wrong, my friend!

    The shown cars are european Passat B5GP, not the chinese LingYu! I guess those are the light armoured (B3 armour level) versions, that were produced and sold from VW directly.
