Where did the Romanian Agilis 8x8 come from and how did Rheinmetall get the bid to build it?

Well this came out of the blue.  A couple of websites that cover armored vehicle development are all a buzz about the Agilis 8x8 that Rheinmetall is proposing to build for Romania.

Besides being intrigued by the vehicle (you have to admit that it looks alot
like the Russian counterpart that has yet to enter production) I'm a bit confused by its birth parents.

Did this come from Rheinmetall to spark Romanian interest or did the Romanians develop it (one of their corporations) and Rheinmetall is simply latching onto their work?
