    Not to blow anyone's bubble, but even though these super cars are stunning in every possible way, I still can't see myself as an owner of anything like this.

    Had I won a car like this in a lottery, I would probably have replaced it with another one fairly fast.

    You don't have to travel to Hong Kong (or Singapore) to see expensive luxury cars.
    Here is one seen in Aalesund yesterday:

    The first one is a Maserati Quattroporte V (2003-2008). The design is a masterpiece by Pininfarina. Unfortunately later spoiled more and more by "facelifts".
    The second is a Maserati Levante... or a Jaguar, Lamborghini, Porsche or Kia ??? - anyway - a melting pot SUV.
    Third: Mercedes SLK (R172) (2011-2019) production ended in February with no successor. A pity.
    Finally you caught a Enviro 500 by Alexander Dennis from Scotland! This model will also the new city bus for Berlin in the future!

    Road is ok.
    Was more refering about the size of it.
    It's more a path .
    Our boss don't want that we go into a forrest.
    If we get stock, it wil cost a lot to pull us out.
    The HC has a ground clearance of about 15 cm.
    Not really a offroad truck

    Thank you so much for your information ombugge!

    I have seen quite a lot of the "double-registration-plates" in Hong Kong, but during my last visit, it seemed as a whole lot more than previously.

    Notice the second car with dual HK and Chinese plates. Hard to know if this car belongs to someone living in HK or in China.
    Quite common to see this, both in HK and especially in Shenzhen, just across the border, as many people drive across regularly. mostly for business.

    The funny thing is that in HK they drive on the left and in China on the right hand side of the road.
    Who is the changeover accompliced? Here is how: https://www.fastcompany.com/1660258/...t-side-drivers

    Those who are old enough will remember that this was the case between Norway and Sweden too, until the Swedes took to their senses and changed, starting with busses and trucks first.
    Only 4 places in Europe is still driving on the left: Most countries which were British colonies still drive on the left hand side of the road including huge land masses such as India, Australia and Southern Africa as well as the Caribbean. Europe generally drives on the right hand side apart from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta and Cyprus. There are two notable exceptions; Japan and Thailand has not been British colonies, yet drives on the left.

    Car-spotting in Hong Kong: here are some of the cars I got to see and photograph, cars that are NOT normal in Norway.

    Firstly, two of the MASERATI brand... I'm not so familiar with their models, so I have little information what models these are:
