Extremely Modified Citroen C1 Looks Like A Sick Halloween Joke 18

There are some weird and wacky cars out there, but this Citroen C1, currently up for grabs in Denmark, is unquestionably one of the most bizarre vehicles we’ve ever seen.

The Carscoops reader who found the C1 notes it is currently for sale on Aunsbjerg with an asking price of 35,000 DKK, or approximately $5,500.

Recently featured in the ‘My Crap Car’ YouTube series, the current owner of the little Citroen purchased it bone stock. Perhaps dissatisfied with its usability and benign design, he decided to totally transform the hatchback and turned it into a permanent droptop, transforming the body and creating something that would be perfect for a Halloween-themed Hollywood blockbuster.

He then casually decided to use an angle grinder to cut off the roof and make the driver’s door completely removable through a pair of hinges you’d expect to find in your house, not a car. Elsewhere, a bodykit has been fitted, 14-inch aftermarket wheels installed and spray paint applied to every square-inch of the exterior.

Since featured in the aforementioned video, the owner has slapped two turbochargers onto the 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, creating an engine bay arguably more outlandish than Ken Block’s Hoonicorn V2.

Considering the fact that the vehicle has been so extensively modified (or ruined…), we can’t imagine it being easy to sell. Nonetheless, it’ll surely bewilder and mystify people wherever it ends up.

Hat tip to Christian Koeb!

PSA Has Already Decided Which Brand To Bring To America, Might Not Be DS 15

Groupe PSA recently returned to the United States with its Free2Move mobility app but that’s not much consolation for fans hoping to buy one of the company’s vehicles.

Cars are coming but it might be awhile before they arrive. As PSA North America CEO Larry Dominique explained to Automobile Magazine, the company doesn’t have a dealership network, infrastructure, or parts and service providers in this country. He added, “I have to build those things from the ground-up.”

Dominique went on to say the situation is a blessing and a curse but he’s going to make sure PSA is 100 percent ready before launching a car in America. He declined to say when this might occur but there’s little doubt the company don’t want to repeat Fiat’s underwhelming return.

Despite not having a firm launch date, Dominique confirmed PSA has already decided which brand to bring to the United States. Initial speculation suggested it would be DS but the executive downplayed that idea by saying “people are just making assumptions.” That doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be DS but other possibilities include Peugeot or Citroen as well as the recently acquired Opel and Vauxhall. The three French brands are seen as the most likely candidates but only time will tell which one finally gets the green light.

Citroën’s New C3 R5 Would Make An Awesome Hot Hatch 12
Nov
Posted by Carscoops Staff in Citroen, Citroen C3, Rally Cars on 11 12th, 2017


This is Citroën’s latest rally car. With the French automaker’s considerable expertise behind it, it’s bound to win a rally or two. But that’s not why it’s caught our attention.

What we’re looking at is the first image of the Citroën C3 R5, a downgraded customer version of the one that the Chevron marque runs in the World Rally Championship.

Still in the thick of its development, the C3 R5 is set to debut later this month at the Rallye du Var that forms part of the French Rally Championship – driven by one Yoann Bonato, who has already sealed up the title with four wins this season. Since the C3 R5 has not yet been finalized and homologated, it’ll run as a “zero” car, clearing the way for the competitors to follow.

That’s all well and fine, but the reason it’s caught our attention is because it looks like it would make for one heck of a hot hatch – sans the race livery and maybe some of the more extreme aero elements and bodywork modifications.

Why the R5 and not the existing WRC version, you ask? Because R5 rally cars like this one are much closer to production spec than their top-tier counterparts. Tone it down a little more and it’d make a serious rival to the likes of the Volkswagen Polo GTI, Renault Clio RS, Ford Fiesta ST, and Toyota Yaris GRMN.

The question is whether Citroën and its parents at the PSA Group (with their cash and attention all tied up in Opel at the moment) will see what we see and put just such a beast on the road. One can only hope.

DS Supercar Concept Has Us Very Intrigued 7
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Citroen, DS, Renderings on 11 7th, 2017


There’s a possibility that DS, the luxury arm of Citroen, could create a hybrid supercar to rival the BMW i8.

Initial reports indicated the car could take design inspiration from the E-Tense Concept but we’ve just come across another bold concept, and we like it even more.

The work of Behance artist Aaron Jaryong Koo, the DS supercar rendered bears little resemblance to the E-Tense Concept and instead combines Citroen styling with the cutting-edge work of Jean Paul Gaultier, a well-known fashion designer. As you’ll see in the gallery below, Jaryong Koo has created three different variations of the supercar, each with their own bespoke look.

The first (pictured above) is probably our favorite and incorporates headlights made up of four horizontal LED light bars, has a thin LED brake light at the base of the rear windscreen and includes a vented rear decklid that allows air to pass under the bodywork, effectively acting as a rear wing.

The other two designs, dubbed Direction B and Direction C, expand upon the first design but push things well into the science fiction realm with have protruding body panels, gaping wide air ducts and curious shapes.

If a DS supercar becomes a reality, it is unlikely to arrive before the end of the decade.
