Citroen seems to always make it a point to offer new weird concepts at every occasion but for this year's Paris Motor Show, it cooked up a car with a "back to essentials" theme. Dubbed the Lacoste Concept, this car is a product of a collaboration with the apparel company Lacoste. This car is nearly the same size as a C1, measuring 3.45m long, 1.80 m wide, 1.52m (135.8x70.8x59.8 inches) high. It has a wheelbase of 2.30m. Like other Citroen cars, this concept has a peculiar design. It has special features and some of them are inspired by Lacoste's products.
For example, the car features golf ball-style alloy wheels and it also has some parts of its body that resemble sections of a tennis net. This car also doesn’t have a roof. It has a T-shaped structure that extends all the way back to the boot and has numerous purposes, including protecting the passengers using the auto-inflatable hood function.
Hence, it forms a soft-top roof. In addition, the dashboard is used as both a traditional dash and an integrated display, which displays vital information such as speed and directional messages in an oversized manner, which is reminiscent of the old video games. Power comes from a three-cylinder petrol engine; however, Citroen has yet to reveal its official output. The company did say that the car gives a high level of performance, is light, and has a “flexible, economical and ecological powerplant.”
