Paris Preshow: Citroën Lacoste Concept


    The new DS4 hatchback is nice and all but a Paris Motorshow without a quirky concept from Citroën is like having a French meal without wine and cheese. For this year's edition of the show, Citroën has joined forces with famous French clothing Lacoste, to create a funky looking study aptly called the "Citroën Lacoste Concept".

    At 3.45m long, 1.80m wide and 1.52m high with a 2.30m long wheelbase, the concept model is roughly the same size as a Citroën C1 / Toyota Aygo. Power comes from a three-cylinder gasoline engine, with the French firm claiming that it offers "plenty of performance on tap to power a vehicle of this size and weight."

    A number of styling details make a direct reference to the sporting / clothing world of the Lacoste brand. On the outside you have the golf ball-style alloy wheels and the square relief designs that resemble sections of a tennis net on several parts of the car's body.

    Inside -among other details- is the seat trim with a weave closely resembling that of a polo shirt and the seatbelt anchorage points that have "necklines" like the French brand's polo shirts.

    One of the coolest features of the door-less concept is the T-shaped structure that extends back to the boot like a "backbone". It hides an auto-inflatable hood that deploys all the way along the backbone to form a soft-top roof to somewhat protect passengers from the elements of natures.

    We'll have more info and photos of the Citroën Lacoste Concept from the Paris Show floor on September 30.
