Carnewschina spotted this looooooooooooog Ford F650 streeeeeeeeetch in front of a swank Beijing hotel. This is a good place to spot outrageous cars in China, sometimes, it feels as if they get imported only to be permanently parked in front of a fivestar. As you can see, even the rope wasn’t long enough to completely rope off the monstrosity.
Tycho at Carnewschina figures the F650 is a least 20 meters or 66 foot long. How the Ford F650 came to China is a mystery. Ford does not officially import it, but it is much easier to get foreign cars into China than into the allegedly open market of America. Shipping was probably the hardest part, customs duty the costliest.
The F650 Super Duty is available ex factory either with a 6.7 liter Cummins diesel or a 6.8 liter V10 CNG engine. Tycho figures the white monster is powered by diesel, which is relatively common in China. Quality of the fuel is another matter.
Tycho had spotted a black counterpart to the white monster creampuff at a dealer in Tianjin. That one definitely was powered by the V10 CNG engine. Tycho declared it as “basically unmovable,” as CNG is an extremely rare commodity at gas stations in China.
