Brilliance recently brought Pininfarina’s Dimitri Vicedomini on board to lead its design team. Brilliance had long used the Italian styling house to design its better looking designs such as the Brilliance Coupe and BS4 sedan, bringing Dimitri on board skips the expensive step of having to pay PF top dollar, and he can work closely with local designers to bring them up to speed. Perhaps Dimitri has been working extra hard since his reassignment on May 22nd this year, this forthcoming Brilliance concept seems to be be more Italian than Chinese and is somewhat reminiscent of the Chrysler Delta in its external style.
Chinese media are saying this is at the concept stage, but in reality this could well be a 2013/14 model and the shape of things to come for Brilliance. If Brilliance does plan on pushing out cars like this, then perhaps their long rumored return to Europe will be closer than one initially expects.
