Italian designer Enrico Fumia offers his two lire on the direction Lancia should take with a new flagship and Mercedes CLS fighter. It's the Lancia J, which appears to take Lancia's already left-of-center stylings and turn them ass-side in. We're not sure if this thing has any chance of getting Lancia to drop its slide rules and get on board, but it sure does make us uncomfortable in a run-and-tell-an-adult way.

Sure, there have been cars that make you wonder which end is the front. (The New Beetle design study, the Concept One, comes to mind.)

But, this might be the first car to make you wonder — because the door handles ape the grill — whether the side is the front.

Seriously, though, the side view in the drawing makes clear that this is a not-too revolutionary design. It's a pretty pedestrian silhouette gussied up with lots of surface, er, decoration.
