The Ford Verve concept car was unveiled at a press conference in Hanau, Germany, on Thursday.
As goes the automakers' dance with the media, come car season, Ford distributed photos and a bland release to the press, while saving for the official unveiling at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show any possibly juicy details of how this thing might actually run.
The car is an example of how the company now has an eye toward small cars, and it will be the first of three cars that Ford plans to reveal this season in Europe, Asia and North America. The "rich colors and distinctive materials" of the Ford Verve concept car were "inspired by the world of fashion and cosmetics," Ford said in a statement.
We've seen plenty of cars with lush interiors and fashion-forward design inspiration, but cosmetics? Is Ford looking at the many misplaced efforts in the tech industry to attract what it thinks the average female consumer is looking for?
At least no one's voting for these concept cars on the Internet.
