Citroen, in collaboration with Lacoste, revealed today the new Citroen Lacoste Concept or a new car for the so-called ‘iPod generation’. Set to make its official debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show later this month, the new car promises to offer a fulfilling drive, while expressing a wealth of inventiveness and elegance. The car is powered by a 3-cylinder petrol engine with plenty of performance on tap to power a vehicle of this size and weight.
This means that the concept is friendly with the environment and a according to the French manufacturer the Citroen Lacoste seems to “embrace” rather than confront nature. As you can see from the photos, the Lacoste Concept is compact and robust at 3.45m long, 1.80m wide, 1.52m high and with a 2.30m wheelbase.
The doors of the car have been replaced by broad cut-outs, showing that it was created for young people. Inside, we find seats overstitched in white cotton, with a weave closely resembling that of a polo shirt - an iconic Lacoste design. Furthermore, the seatbelt anchorage points have “necklines” like a polo shirt, while the seats are covered in robust, rope-like cotton. Regarding a production version of this concept, don’t expect it as this is just a design study and you will not see it in the Citroen dealerships.
