I'm curious to know the story about this one.

I know BAIC, prior to 2010, was building Chrysler 300s in China, through the Beijing-Benz joint venture, and this is clearly based on the first generation LX platform 300.

I assume BAIC wanted to continue building the early 300, with restyling to fit under their own brand, but it was probably halted because of the split of the DaimlerChrysler merger and Chrysler might have denied BAIC the rights to use the body of the 300 after production of the 300 itself ended in 2009.

It would essentially have been to China as the SEAT Exeo was to Spain.
