Faurecia Concept Car

Modern cars are not not forged from iron by factories, but are assembled from components sourced from thousands of partners. Not surprisingly, after 100 years of supplying parts, French manufacturer Faurecia has tired of watching car manufacturers muck it up and created the Premium Attitude Concept Car. Though it is likely more a science experiment to show off their capabilities of building dashboards and door panels, it is exciting to see an auto that exhibits traditionally idiosyncratic French design. When was the last time you saw a concept car with black steel wheels and hubcaps?
