Renault has teamed up with British designer Ross Lovegrove to create a new concept car that hints at the future styling direction for the French automaker. The yet-to-be-named car will be unveiled at the Triennale of Milan on April 8, and it will be on display unit the 14th.

Although the automaker has not released any details about the car, it did say that the concept's design has been heavily influenced by elements of nature. This includes details like the ripples in some of the body components and branch-like features on the wheels and what appears to be either a fog light or a speaker grille. Sounds interesting, and we'll know soon enough how the whole package will take shape.

      Should be interesting. I wouldn't want to clean those wheels, though.

      Renault had a lot more sucess in the European market when they weren't designed weird cars (like the Megane II)

      Looks like this thing made landfall, crawled up the beach just in time for a press conference. Not saying it's bad, just different--like a coral reef on wheels.
