In this picture there is a low forward bend in the C-pillar of the car. Although this design element is primarily European it has been seen in some American and Japanese cars as far back as 1951. Some American and Japanese manufactures currently use it on a few of their models but in today's design it is used across the board by one European manufacture and is named after a former director of design for the same company. Yes believe it or not this thing has a name. What is it?
