We wanted to go to the Bologna auto show this year, but we just knew we'd wind up at the Mercato di Mezzo stuffing our faces like a busload of tapeworm-afflicted Dom DeLuise clones. Still, we've always been somewhat taken by the Lancia Ypsilon, a compact car that comes off as much more stylish as it should be, considering its size and economy. For the show, Lancia is rolling out an even more stylish MomoDesign version of the Ypsilon, which sports a dramatic but inexplicable dartboard livery that almost makes us forget its double-digit horsepower number. Va bene.
