    French automaker Renault has unveiled its Frendzy concept car ahead of this fallís Frankfurt Motor Show. The Frendzy represents the fourth step in Renaultís design strategy, which the automaker says is based on the different stages of the human life cycle.

    Penned under the leadership of Laurens van den Acker, the Frendzy is intended as a dual-purpose vehicle Ė a work vehicle by day and a family hauler by night. Renault designates the carís driverís side as the family section of the car and the passengerís side as the work section.

    The outside of the concept car is highlighted by a 37-inch wide-screen display on the passengerís side sliding door. Messages can be scrolled across the screen via the BlackBerry PlayBook located in the Frendzyís cockpit.

    Inside the Frendzyís dual-personality continues, with space specifically designed for work and family. For work mode, the Frendzy features magnetic fixings to secure loads to the floor, a fabric roof to contour to larger objects and a futuristic-looking work bench. When work time is over, the Frendzy shifts to a family hauler, signified by the carís interior illumination turning to green.

    Wow. Wildly unimpressed.
    Marveling at how hideous this car looks.

    Apparently someone at Renault went dumpster diving behind Honda's design studio and found the sketches for the next generation Element before Honda decided to kill the model.

    Here is what we overheard an engineer at Renault say:
    I saw the Element humping a Kia Soul the other day..... It gave me a wonderful idea.....
