No, these are not super-secret spy shots of the 2010 Cadillac Cimarron. GM (hopefully) learned its lesson then, and is not creating a baby Caddy by grafting a Catera grille onto a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta.

Pictured here might be the Chinese-made Marindo 506 from Shanghai Maple. Due to major language barriers, it's hard to tell if this is a past model or one soon to be introduced. What is evident is the definite influence by Cadillac's art and science design philosophy, probably not used with Ed Wellburn's permission.

But from photos found on the Maple website, their current design language is a tribute to yet another luxury marque.

These are current Maple models, though which one isn't clear. Can you guess what German company with the four-ring logo inspired this car's designer?
