What's this car?

I never really thought about it, but now it struck me- anyone know?
The badge looks like Haima (doubt it), and it looks like a concept car.
Thanks:D

you don't know what car that is? How'd you become a mod?

Very funny :p. Do mods have to know every car?
I can name pretty much any (mass-production) car, including
many in China, however, there are many small-manufacturer's
there I don't know, and companies aren't as formally structured
as in other countries, meaning sometimes we don't know if it's
a concept car or what. Though I can't name every Chinese car
, I know a lot of brands and can remember notable models.
I'm more of an expert on the American and (Western) European
markets, with a broad knoweldge of the Japanese market, Australian
market, and to some extent in other countries.
Or, was that just your way of avoiding the question b/c you don't know :p ?

He's just kidding with you 4Real.......

That looks like the Haima S1 concept seen at the Beijing show last November. The logo is similar to Mazda's but with longer wings.
It didn't get very much attention in the media, but I think it's another indicator of Hainan Haima's serious effort to make its mark on the industry. It's said that the S1 was designed in Haima's new Shanghai R&D Center. I wonder it it had I.D.e.A. input like the re-skinned Mazda 3 that Haima put out recently.

I think there's a lot of automotive talent down in Hainan as that island was the center of the big foreign car smuggling scandal in the late 80s. Tens of thousands of cars moved through there on there way to the mainland.
