The face made me think Chrysler 300.

Indeed, especially those 300s made to look like a Bentley or Roller; As a whole it reminds me of those Chysler 300 based stretch limos that are mad to look like a Rolls Royce, quite popular with cheap limo rental agencies...

It's inoffensive, but not exactly what you'd call original. Looks like an uncomfortable mix of Rolls-Royce Phantom, Bentley Flying Spur and Chrysler 300 styling cues, with a definite bias towards the Chrysler.

Those headlights really look they're straight out of Chrysler or Jeep...

probably they are. The interior shots of (likely) a prototype showed a ca. 2010 Ford Mondeo/Galaxy/S-Max parts bin robbery, including the very professional leather cushion glued onto the Ford steering wheel. Production numbers of this probably don't justify the development of an own headlight/steering colum/switchgear etc., so it#s not unlikely that some parts are carried over form suppliers who usually supply them to other manufacturers...

Correction - it looks like something the Chinese would have made 10 years ago.

That pretty much sums things up.
