Citroen Survolt Art Car
Citroën has launched a new season at the Company’s international showcase, C_42, featuring a display of exciting models including a new ‘Art Car’ version of Survolt by Francoise Nielly, and Flavio Melchiorre’s personalized Citroën DS3 - winner of the Citroën Créative Awards competition.
The 14th season at the distinctive landmark building on the world famous Champs-Elysées also celebrates this year’s Paris Motor Show, bringing some of Citroën’s newest models such as the New C4, C-ZERO, DS3 Racing and DS4, to the public’s attention in the centre of Paris.
A specially created LED display on the C_42’s façade welcomes visitors with a multi-screen, digital creation symbolizing Citroën’s ‘Créative Technologie’. Inside, the building’s magnificent revolving rotunda presents Citroën’s exciting model and concept ranges across several floors.
In the ground floor atrium, the exhibition opens with DS4, the second model in Citroën’s distinctive DS line. Guests can then experience the latest version of the C5 Tourer, presented in matt-black paintwork; the New C4, featuring Citroën’s innovative new e-HDi micro-hybrid technology; the stylish, hot-blooded special-edition DS3 Racing, displayed in a carbon setting; and the zero noise, zero fuel consumption and zero emission C-ZERO full-electric city car.
Fresh from its exhilarating UK duel against an electric superbike - the first head-to-head of its kind - the stunning all-electric Survolt racecar concept has been recharged with a bold, vivid and brightly contrasting new fluorescent paint scheme by Francoise Nielly. A source of inspiration for the original styling of Survolt, renowned contemporary artist Francoise Nielly worked closely with Citroën’s design team to create the exciting new interpretation of Citroën’s 100% electric racer - the Survolt ‘Art Car’.
