Just wondering whether anyone who's been to or lives in China thinks that Nanjing could sell the following cars?

Rover 600:

Rover 800 (also available as a 5 door limo):

Granted both cars could do with a face lift as they are both very long in the tooth. But it strikes me that as Nanjing has found all the old tooling for these cars languishig in the corner of Longbridge in the UK then they may try to make them by facelifting the models for the Chinese market only. Bearing in mind some of the really bad rip off's of cars that exist and the fact that some really old models are still made, then I wonder would Nanjing get away with it? Especially for bargain basement prices..

Probably - I've seen old imported early to mid 90's Rovers in and around Shanghai when I was there not too long ago.

However, if you're planning to import them then you would need left hand drive models and expect to pay a HUGE import tax.

I would think Honda might have something to say.

Having said that they destroyed all the material relating to the 400/45/ZS, how come not to the 600/800.
