  • Description
    Well this is probably my most unexpected spot of all the time. I spotted this incredibly rare Hongqi (Red Flag) CA770 parked at a cemetery in the suburbs of a small town in Northern China. The CA770 was the state car of China during the Mao era. There were around 1,500 of these in total but many of them were scrapped or abandoned. I saw a couple of these in some museums but I never thought I could find a wild one!

Very interesting find. It strikes me as both classy and imposing at the same time.

Hongqi's are some of, if not the only cool cars from China. They're not a cheap ripoff of anything else really.

Jay Leno has reviewed this car before and even him has never heard of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf4cOFutuCI&t=5s
