... due to engine not able to conform to Euro5 which is mandatory since Jan 2011.
That and selling under 1000 cars per year.

You have to be kidding...
They'd be extremely happy to sell 200 - 300 Legends in the EU (where Euro5 applies) !!!

The Legend is the prototype of whatever Europe doesn't need and if anything I always wondered why they did even bother bringing it ... Unless they put some fancy hybrid or diesel power-train in there I don't think it'll made a "come back".

We lost 'ours' before the 3.7 facelift.

Shame really, but yes, it is just pointless even trying. The car would need to be utterly brilliant in every department to have even a tiny chance of breaking the German hegemony over the market.

I had to look - and it is sad.

Jan - Jun 2010 for EU + East of Europe (incl. majors countries like Russia, Turkey...) 111 Legends were sold.

Noooooooooooooo! We bought one in 2006 when it went on sale in Europe(first order in Slovenia) and the MMC in 2009 with the 3.7 engine. And now we wanted to change the older one with the 2011 model with the 6AT gearbox :(

What would you know? It's a great car, and in other world markets it fills the void of the TL which we don't get. It was one of the best cars on the road in it's segment when it first came out, and is still up there even now. Just that no one knows about it. Mores the pity.
