Citroën concept cars have always responded to the canons of unconventionality in search of innovative stylistic solutions. We have collected six of the most extravagant prototypes from the 1980s to the present day: here is their story.
In 1980, the French manufacturer presented the Karin at the Paris Motor Show, a concept car created by designer Trevor Fiore, who was responsible for the Citroën style centre at the time. In addition to the surprising pyramidal shape, the composition of the interior designed to accommodate three people was also astonishing. The driver’s seat was central and positioned slightly ahead of the two passengers, positioned one on each side. The main controls were near the steering wheel, adjustable, while the on-board computer constantly communicated the state of the road. On the outside, the front headlights took on the shape of those of the MS, launched ten years earlier. Karin anticipated the square shapes of later models such as the BX, AX or XM.
