Default Hawtai (Huatai) B11 sedan

From China Car Times and Autohome.

Quote:
First it was Geely that wanted to give China a taste of the luxury life on a limited budget, but now Huatai are eager to jump on the luxury brand bandwagon.

No other information regarding the pictures has been released as of yet, but we will keep you updated on this particular model.

Huatai have been moving hard on the technology side of things over the past 18 months, they have purchased VM Motori diesel engine technology, and have also acquired ex Hyundai IPR, and branding, on which they will build their cars.

Huatai are also planning to build a large engine and transmission plant in Russia.

Is it just me, or can I see a sort of rip-off BMW badge on the front and back of the car?

Ha! I knew there was something cheap about the logo. Can't they think of anything else?

Now, come to think of it, I think it's actually a mix of cars. There's a mix of Continental and Flying Spur in there but the roofline is something akin to an Audi A6 or something like that.

As these drawings use the old logo, we can estimate that they are more than one year old. The spelling of Huatai is also old, at the Shanghai Show they say they are named Hawtai. To me it looks more like a design students project.

It seems bad rip-off is becoming a reality. A test car was spotted near the factory.
