Citroën has unveiled an 'Art Car' version of its all-electric Survolt concept car.
The art car Survolt comes with a fluorescent paint design by artist Francoise Nielly and the model was the main attraction at the 14th annual C_42 showcase event at the French automaker's flagship store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris.
Also on display at the event was a DS3 in a personalized creative finish by Flavio Melchiorre, who won first prize at the Citroën Créative Awards, a design competition which launched last May. The Melchiorre DS3 will be offered in 2011 as one of the French brand's personalization options on the model.
