Filed under: China, Etc., Cadillac, Luxury



Cadillac is doing its best to secure its spot in the ever-growing Chinese auto market, and according to sources culled by Automobile, the luxury marque may have even gone so far as to sponsor a documentary on the rise of the communist party in the People's Republic. Depending on which translation you believe, the name of the film is either "The Birth of a Party" or "The Great Achievement of Founding the Party" (both are pretty catchy) and the sponsorship is part of a drive to get the word out about its long-wheel base SLS.

With the number of wealthy individuals in China growing by the day, it should come as no surprise to hear about The Crest doing whatever it can to promote its products in the country. Still, as Automobile points out, it's only a matter of time before some yokel with an internet connection begins drawing imaginary connections and calling GM out for its contributions to communism.
