IIRC there was at least a partially built Brilliance according to VLR, but parts were slow in arriving to fully complete it? There was talk about Brilliance testing/developing the car in '07 with an appearce in '08.
Yeah, where could those cars have gone to? Back to Brilliance?
Recently, I've wondered how serious Brilliance, Lada, Skoda, others were in the WTCC? Or did they make those announcements to generate news/talk about their respective brands on the world stage? They got quite a bit of PR, but spent very little in the form a few press releases, a showcar,etc...
