Citroen Lacoste Concept - a future full of open-air experience
Citroen, the French-based automaker renowned for its avant-garde, futuristic study rides has unwrapped its latest design concept, the Citroen Lacoste Concept. As the name suggests, the new vehicle is designed in collaboration with the high-end apparel company Lacoste and features variety of details inspired by different products of the brand, including the fresh color combination and the golf-ball-like shaped alloys.
Ready to amaze the crowd at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the Citroen Lacoste Concept benefits from neat, boxy styling with compact dimensions - 3.45 m long, 1.80 m wide, 1.52 m high and 2.30 m wheelbase. Further key details include (or exclude): no hard-top roof, no front doors, specially-designed sports storage areas, as well as innovative materials.
For powering the sporty-styled concept vehicle, Citroen has mounted an extra powerful 3-cylinder petrol with great eco-figures, ideal for the ride's "back to essentials" character.
On the inside, the car spotlights a unique display blended in the fascia strip on the dashboard, which shows driving information such as speed, car details and directional indicators. Another unmistakable interior eye-catcher is the two-spoke steering wheel that boasts cute minimalistic design and perfect size.
