Ford just leaked photos of its EVOS Concept to be revealed at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. In short, we love it. The EVOS is a plug-in hybrid with four exotic gullwing doors and a gorgeous design language, which Ford is using to establish a new direction for the design of all future Ford models. The shape of the EVOS borrows heavily from current Aston Martins, which isn’t a bad thing. The teardrop-shaped rear windows are going to show up on numerous Fords in the coming years, lending four-door sedans a coupe-like appearance.

First up to get the EVOS treatment is the 2013 Ford Fusion, which we will see at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in a few months. Until then, you’ll have to ogle these photos of the EVOS in action. Notice the razor-sharp LED headlamps that take a new minimalistic approach to exterior lighting, and the driver’s seat that is a different color than the other seats in the vehicle. We’re not sure that the interior color scheme will make it to production, but the look of the head and taillamps are supposed to be carried over to Ford’s new products as well. We say huzzah.

    Looks like the Tesla Model S is going to have some competition.

    While the practicality of gull wing doors in a parking lot is debatable, the vehicle is a beauty. Much of the vehicles appearance is based on the current Taurus, however done right. It’s sharper, cleaner, sexier while the Taurus is watered down and cheap looking and poorly misshapen as a full sized sedan. Ford should add this level of styling to it’s current Taurus. My only gripe is the upper grille which looks like a fish struggling to breath.

    Very cool, wonder what the cost is?
