A Lamborghini LP 570-4 Superleggera in bright orange, seen in the great city of Chengdu by reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pic! The super speedy Lambo loox great in orange, the theme continuing all the way to the brake calipers. The LP 570-4 Superleggera debuted in 2010, lighter and faster than the regular Gallardo; weight is only 1340kg and the 5.2 liter V10 poops out 562hp, together good for an impressive 325km/h top speed. Chengdu is surrounded by high mountains with very new and super-flat roads, there can’t be a better place to have this Gallardo…

Here we have a brilliant blue Shanghai SH760 sedan, seen in the Sanhe Classic Car Museum in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The SH760 was the predecessor of the Shanghai SH760A that we saw earlier on. The SH760 was made from 1964 to 1974, this particular example was made in 1972. As you can see it was outside the actual museum hall for maintenance, this oldie still sees the road now and then, rented out for festivities and such more.

When walking to the Sanhe Classic Car Museum on the premises of the Sanhe Dealer Group in Chengdu I passed by a rather anonymous building. Those for sure are always the most interesting so I took a look inside… It happened to be a work place where various vehicles from Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini were maintained and made ready for delivery. It was indeed, an amazing club of cars.

Last week I was a couple of days in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. Very busy with such and such but I managed to sneak out for a few hours for a visit to the fantastic Sanhe Classic Car Museum. The ‘Sanhe Group‘ is a major car dealer in Chengdu, selling, among others, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Rolls-Rolls. The group also has a small department which ‘rebuilds’ classic cars and that is what the museum is all about. Beautiful old cars, restored to the absolute max…

Here we have a retecool Ford Fiesta in yellow & black, seen on a very rainy day in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The yellow stuff is painted, the black is wrapped. Great combo we think and as far as we know the first such in China.

Here we have a cool customized sixth-generation Honda Civic sedan, seen in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. The 6th-gen Civic was only made for four year, from 1996 until 2000, and was never officially exported to China. I doubt someone would go through all the gray-market trouble to bring a Civic in so this is likely and ex-diplomat car that stayed around.

A very orange BMW 335i Convertible painted in matte-orange, seen by me on a parking lot in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province. I was in town for a short visit for my daytime job but managed to click a lotta cars. Much more later! The BMW was further beamed up by racy low profile tires and very black alloys.
