The line-up at the Geneva Show would not be complete without the Lancia Ypsilon MOMO Design, the new version of the model that manages to be both assertive and fashionable. It was developed jointly by Lancia and Momo Design, two brands that share a commitment to innovation in design, the use of cutting edge materials and attention to detail.
For the first time on a mass production car, this model features opaque metallic black paint for the tailgate, roof and pillars, matched wîth non-metallic Black, Pergolesi Ivory, Bramante Orange and Alberti Red. An additional touch of elegance comes from the metalluro finish of certain elements: from the door handles to the tailgate trim, the model logo and the grille frame. The interior is upholstered wîth Glamour fabric on the seats, wîth black side strips and orange, red or magnesium on the seat cushion to match the external paintwork.
The lavish equipment includes manual climate control wîth a pollen filter, Dualdrive power §teering, 15' alloy wheels wîth a sporty design, radio wîth CD player and the option of an MP3 player, ABS wîth EBD, 4 airbags and foglights. But there are other important features, such as height and reach adjustment of the §teering wheel, a rear seat that folds down and tilts, a height adjustable driver's seat, trip computer, twin colour-coded wing mirrors, electric front windows, 195/55 tyres, the Follow me home device, and the §teering wheel and gear lever knob covered wîth perforated leather wîth silver overstitching.
Anyone who enjoys driving will find that the Ypsilon MOMO Design is a compact that behaves brilliantly on any route. The merit goes to the engines: the 70 bhp 1.3 Multijet, the 60 bhp 1.2 8v and the 80 bhp 1.2 16v, which deliver excellent performance and low fuel consumption.
And finally, Lancia has chosen the Armando Testa advertising agency to convey the appeal of the new MOMO Design version to the public, wîth an advertising campaign that focuses on the concept of ‘exciting'. It uses the language of video clips, combining irony, freshness and rhythm, for a campaign that highlights the new Lancia model as a trendy item. The television commercial begins wîth strongly rhythmical electronic music, ‘Fortress Europe', a signature tune of the Asian Dub Foundation group, and a rapid succession of portraits of young people who are gazing in amazement at ‘something' that isn't quite visible yet.
The shot changes and we see a young man at night in the city, making his entrance into a crowded, fashionable Peep Show. As he advances, he meets people of all types, changes some notes into coins for the entertainment on offer, and finally reaches a vast room where a number of people are queuing to go into the cubicles, presumably to see the strip show. The young man goes into a cubicle, puts his coin in the slot, and when the electric shutter opens, in front of him is a seductive Lancia Ypsilon MOMO Design surrounded by a fascinated audience. The commercial ends wîth the claim: ‘The new Lancia Ypsilon MOMO Design. Exciting.'Source - FIAT AUTO S.p.A.
