Citroen Lacoste For Paris Motor Show


Citroen’s latest concept car is a funky thing made in collaboration with Lacoste, the fashion brand.

It is a mix of pick up, coupe, golf kart, crossover, MPV! and it looks quite funny, specially as it has no doors at front, it’s got cut-outs instead, but it’s a four-seater. And it’s got no roof. It is 3.45m long, 1.80m wide, 1.52m high with a 2.30m wheelbase.

As you see you can’t take this car very seriously, as it’s just a show car for the Paris Auto Salon. But unlike other modern concept cars it’s not an electric car, and is equipped with a 3-cylinder petrol engine.

At the crossroads of motoring, fashion and sport, the Citroën Lacoste makes a number of references to all three worlds.The cabin contains countless storage areas for enhanced travelling comfort.  The compartments are discreetly located under the dashboard and within the two bench seats – with sliding covers that echo the colour of the upholstery.

The seats themselves are overstitched in white cotton, with a weave closely resembling that of a polo shirt – an iconic Lacoste design.  Building on this theme, the seatbelt anchorage points have “necklines” like a polo shirt, while the seats are covered in robust, rope-like cotton.
