Monsieur knows a lot about perversions.
The French have always been trendsetters. It is special - sometimes ridiculous, sometimes sophisticated, sometimes confusing, but it has always been a non-standard view of things in the design world.
And this concerned cars not least, which are only the cult DeShvo, DS-Goddess, Renault 4 and others like them. Even more relaxed in design delights, Peugeot produced striking cars of the 20X and 30X series.
But what is interesting, being quite successful and popular in classes A, B and C, as well as in the segment of mini- and compact vans, having won more than one title "Car of the Year", the French have not gained commercial fame in the business class. Renault VelSatis, Citroen C6 - awwwww, where are you, scary and six-gate at the same time? Even a slightly more modest Laguna generated 2 kilo-euro losses from each car. could not reach a decent level of sales - well, buyers outside France do not understand why the D-class should be a hatchback, give them sedans!
And Ghosn drew a Volkswagen. Well, it is clear that he is not, but a whole bunch of types of designers and types of marketers. They are tired of inventing chips like vertical glass and a tail in the second generation Megan-hatch, tired of drawing a "step" of the Citroen XM's glazing, tired of little Fawn stretching the "lion's smile" from ear to ear. Mdeee …
Everything is so secondary and uninteresting that you don't even know how to be. Tried coloring with a pair of LED whiskers in the front and arrows in the back but didn't help much. VAG he is VAG, no matter how much you mold a Renault grille on him.
Look, in short, here is the new Renault Talisman instead of the deceased Laguna.
But hope still lingers in the minds, a designer from California (well, where else can Renault be drawn today?) Refreshed the image of Renault 4 in a modern way! And that's a LOT! No, I'm not going to buy it, but what a charm this little freak has!
