Citroën has unveiled in Frankfurt the Cactus M concept which represents a throwback to the classic Méhari.

It's being described as an outdoor version of the regular C4 Cactus upon which is based, but as you can see Citroën has chopped off the roof and made other revisions to the body, including new lightweight plastic doors. One of the most important changes is the rear "roof extension" which enables wakeboards and surfboards to be installed on top of the vehicle.

The concept also has an inflatable roof that doubles as a tent when it's not installed on the car. On the inside there are waterproof neoprene fabric seats designed to mimic wetsuits while the drainage holes mounted in the floor serve the purpose of releasing water while the interior is being housed out.

There's still no word just yet about a production version, but a while back we heard Citroën CEO Linda Jackson saying they are analyzing the prospects of resurrecting the Méhari and obviously this concept is a suitable candidate for a production model.
