Lancia Imperiale Concept by David Cardoso

Independent designer David Cardoso has released the images of his latest concept, an hypothetic and quite interesting Lancia flagship called Imperiale.
The concept uses the same styling language adopted by recent Lancia models such as the Ypsilon, Delta and Thesis, with a front-end sporting the classic grille and a quite original headlight layout, whereas the rear end is even more unusual, with a tail-light design that we have never seen before.

The car as a whole is quite round-shaped, and its design is both original and loyal to the styling adopted by Lancia for its most recent models.
With one exception.
One cannot help but notice how different this concept is in comparison to the recently unveiled ‘real’ Lancia flagship, the Thema, which is basically a re-badged Chrysler 300.

In a conversation with website CarScoop, Mr.
Cardoso admitted that he is definitely not a fan of the model, which somewhat inspired him to create the Imperiale: “When Lancia recently brought out the Thema that is based on the American Chrysler 300C, I was let down by Lancia as it disowned its own Italian design language.

The Imperiale is an attempt to create a worthy Thesis successor“.
We have to say that we actually see his point there.
