Red Flag limousine

The limousine in which China's President Hu Jintao stood when he reviewed the military parade at china's 60th nationa day is a indigenous car developed by Chinese, manufactured by FAW.

Hongqi HQE, or "Red Flag limousine" had been a political symbol in China since 1958, when the first "Red Flag" rolled off the production line at the First Automotive Works (FAW).

FAW is China's first automobile manufacturer in 1953 as part of their first fiver year plan with soviet assistance

What impressed me is the way Chinese go to any extent to have their own distinct brands (copied/inspired or whatever) than relying on western brands.

As usual, you will always see presidents and celebrities riding in a Limo. The elegance of a Limousine service makes the day special and unique. It sure is fun and exciting to ride one on a special event.
