Talk about managing expectations. Last week, the Espera Sbarro design school released a sketch of a concept it planned to unveil in Geneva today. We got a long look at the concept in three dimensions, and it's not even close. While the drawing looked less like a car than a cubist's sketch of a post-absinthe nightmare, in the flesh, the car is all hotness.
