This is one fleet for a wedding on June 20, 2009 in Datong, a major city in Shanxi. Of course, involving another coal magnate.
40 Porsche Cayennes, Range Rovers, BMW X5 and Audi Q7 are not counted as the wedding fleet, only escorts.  The escort team's job is to go ahead of the wedding fleet to "clear the road"!
