TTAC Photochop: Renault Megane III
Last week I wrote about how Lexus production models look a lot better than their concept cars. Well, with Renault it seems to be the exact opposite. Try to remember the VelSatis concept car that was quite appealing (in a French way) but turned into one of the most hideous pseudo-sedans ever. Same for the Koleos, that was initially an original and tasteful design, but became an SUV cliché as a production vehicle. This year in Geneva Renault brought us the Megane Coupe Concept, as a preview for the third generation of their C-segment player. While not being exactly production-oriented with its large gullwing doors and the hotter-than-Scirocco low profile, the car still has many styling elements that can be used on the third Megane. If Renault manages to break the "turn nice concepts into weird production cars" pattern we might see the first good-looking Megane soon.
I like it. AKM, weirdness is part of the charm of French cars.
Fine photochop. But tell me: why do you use German license plates? The typography is amongst the world's ugliest.
Maybe he wants to stress the point French cars are "unmistakeably German" these days?
The license plates are my "secret" signature...
