Lancia Ypsilon ELLE

The Lancia Ypsilon continues to be the true icon of the Italian design. Now, time has come for the new Ypsilon ELLE show car to say something. This is an original version created in collaboration with ELLE brand, a company that sets trends each season with a vast range of clothes for women and also accessories. ELLE products can be found in more than 80 countries worldwide and are being sold at selected retailers and the major European department stores. Lancia considers fashion a great part of marketing that represents a key element of brand positioning. Fashion and Lancia re two showcases of Italian design with shared values including talent, creativity and innovation. The Ypsilon ELLE has a lot of features that make you turn your head around there is the body work in a metalluro-effect pink, chrome-plated details like the radiator grille, the rear bumper, handles and door moldings. The model runs on 16-inch alloy wheels painted in the same pink as the body, but with a matt coat. The carmaker offered a special treatment for the interior. To be more precise, it offered the special purple leather and Alcantara upholstery with the word ELLE appearing ton-sur-ton on the middle part of the seat. This is not all. The upholstery is enhanced by contrasting stitching with bright white leather piping as well. For the interior carpets, the carmaker used a technical material that is bright white and feels like a fabric. The color scheme for the interior continues with the easy-chrome and central console that has the purple gear stick gaiter just to match the seats and the gemstone. The Ypsilon has an even more exclusive interior thanks to the bright white Alcantara upholstery on the upper part of the central pillar and the roof panel. The floor mats have leather edges. The model will be produced as a limited edition and sold in the major European markets in the spring of 2010.
