    That is a good name. Because 绅宝 was the name of SAAB in China when they has not enter Chinese market officially.

    I know that the company is called BAIC in English, but is the marque which the C70 will come under BAIC or Beijing in English?

    From what I was told on my last visit, it will just be ‘Beijing C70′ in English. They are very handsome cars. I had my doubts to begin with about the feasibility of the project, but now I am convinced they are set to win strong market share.

    Top Gear will have a field day with this one. ‘Gentleman’s treasure’. I think the innuendo is lost on the Chinese market though…

    That’s an interesting name they’ve chosen, given that “宝” is also the word used to describe a special ingredient in a certain Chinese dish.

    Hint: for the English-speaking readers, another translation for bao is “jewel(s)”.
