On a recent tuning show I came across an impressive collection of rare Audi rally and road cars. Most of these cars arrived in China with the 2015 Hong Kong to Beijing Rally, and somehow never left. The rally was sponsored by Audi China and by FAW-Volkswagen, the joint venture that makes various Audis and Volkswagens for the Chinese market.

A heavily overloaded tricycle, Spotted in China late at nights on a highway in Beijing by Reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pictures! The tricycle is transporting at least 11 sacks, likely loaded with recyclables, held together by a few flimsy ropes. On top of that sits a woman, looking remarkable relaxed. Her position is about four meters above the asphalt where cars are passing by at high speeds.

Additionally, as it is called GT, is has some sporty bits; GT badgery, racy five spoke alloys, black mirrors, and a tiny wing on the boot lid.
