Motor Authority just posted a photo of a special long-wheelbase version of the Ford Mondeo, apparently made for the Chinese market. This has been a popular pastime for automakers of late, as LWB versions of sedans from Cadillac, BMW, Audi and others have surfaced as psuedo-limos for the Chinese market.
The picture of the stretched Mondeo was apparently found on the Chinese forum SoulImage, and shows an obviously-lengthened Ford Mondeo sedan with a longer wheelbase to accommodate its extended rear door. It's a bit strange to see cars that have just debuted going through the taffy puller and coming out with different proportions than the press photos, especially before we have yet to see the real thing in person, but this Mondeo manages to still look handsome and stylish even with the extra inches. No word on whether or not this Mondeo plus will make it to other markets, though.

      It looks cool. And it sure would be welcomed in China.
      China's emergence as the world's next superpower has so far been seamless. Not only does it have international corporations queuing up for its capital, but it is now transferring that power into influence, from Africa to Latin America, without making enemies along the way.
      It a chance to make money in doing business with China.

      They get the Mondeo in China? I told my friend who sells Fords that she won't see me back in the showroom anytime soon until they get the Mondeo.

        Yup. They do get the Mondeo in China. In the cities I visited, the Mondeo tended to be among the nicer cars there. But wow. This long wheelbase Mondeo definitly looks nice, and from the profile view, it almost looks like it could be a very high-end car.
