HellaFlush cars have become popular in China over the past few years, Hellaflush of course means Slammed, Slammed means the cars are slammed to the floor and allow for very little space between the front fender and the road surface. Usually the Hellaflush crowd are limited to the Beijing area where Ge Men’ers slam mk 2 Jetta’s into the floor and put on alloys that are worth more than the car if it was weighed in for scrap, rarely are they seen outside of the Greater Beijing areas. Bamboo Bike riding tipster, Bamboo Bike, sent these pictures of a slammed Honda Odyssey he saw earlier today in downtown Shanghai:
This green machine features a hydraulic system to raise it off the floor come driving time, a fully revised front end that must have taken a fair amount of fiber glass to construct. The hood is where the action is at, a green ‘blanket’ has been perched on top of the hood and is totally squishy as Mr. Bambo Bikes delicately points out with his index finger, the roof also seems to have similar vinyl pattern, which brings up the question, when was the last time you saw a car with a vinyl roof?
Under the hood is a 2.4L Vtech Honda Engine mated to a 5 speed automatic gearbox, neither are particularly pleasing to drive in the 7 seater tube that is the Chinese/Japanese/Australian Market Odyssey.
Thanks to Bamboo Bike for the tip. Seen anything strange on Chinese roads? Send us a tip: email@example.com
