Well, I guess Russian Russo-Baltique will be in China very soon as well with its extra exclusive Impression. In Russia it will cost 50 mln roubles (now exchange rate is 26 RUR/USD). In China, well after all those duties and taxes, I don't know.
Russo-Baltique Impression made its first official appearance in April 2006 at Villa d'Este Concourse d'Elegance in Italy. The company officials ay that they plan to build Impression in 15 exemplares and sell it though their showrooms that will be opened in Moscow, Monaco and one of the Middle Eastern countries. Well, if the the things will go well, I think they will be looking to make a presence in China as well.

Well there are different chinese cars: some of them fall apart as soon as they move, others should be OK. I mean I don't see anything wrong in buying for example Hongqi HQ3 if you are wealthy enough. The car seems to be exact copy of Toyota Crown Majesta, either licened or not (in latter case it will probably not be as reliable as the proper one). If it is as good a japaneese car and than the former - it will a big success. I already can envisage Vladivostok car dealers bringing it to Russia instead of 2-3 year old Toyotas.
Since the resurrection of Russo-Baltique, some designers are having crazy thoughts that the company should go one step further by turning to its roots and think of manufacturing peronal luxury rail cars and trains for billionaires.
