LUCKY GUY AT RALLY

Added February 2011: Watch as this guy almost gets his legs removed as a Citroen AX loses momentary control at a Rally - the lucky guy barely moves as he watches the AX come within inches of his knee caps.

 


CITROEN METROPOLIS INTRODUCTION VIDEO


April 2010

This is the first available video of CitroŽn's latest concept car, the Metropolis, that gives certain German makers (see Porsche and BMW) a lesson or two on how to design an eye-candy luxury sports saloon.
The styling of the 5.3m long and 2m wide but only 1.4m high Metropolis has echoes of the French automaker's well received GT supercar concept of 2008. This one was developed by CitrŲen's Shanghai-based design team.
Under the subtle "Pearl Silk" colored bodywork there's a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that utilizes "an optimized" 2.0-liter V6 petrol engine, an electric motor and a 7-speed, dual-clutch electronic gearbox...

Citroen CX Chases Renault 5 in French TV Show

November 2009

We can't tell you what cheezoid cop show you're watching, nor can we tell you why the chiseled good guy in the Renault 5 is pursuing the obvious baddie in the CitroŽn.

It appears that the guy in the 5, finding himself behind the CX, takes a "short cut" across the countryside in order to reappearÖ still behind the CX. Some pretty good Franco-hoonage here, and that's what counts!

 

 


WORLD'S FASTEST 2CV

June 2009

It takes inspired madness to imagine that the perfect mate for a Ferrari 355 chassis could be a Citroen 2CV Fourgonnette body. 

Imagine motoring along at a respectable 100 mph on one of Europe's many Autoroutes when in your mirror appears the fast-approaching grille of a 2CV Truckette.  "What the.." you utter as it flashes its headlights at you and you pull to the right while watching the Truckette blow by you at an impossibly-high speed.  You tap your speedometer and make a mental note to visit your Porsche mechanic next week.

This is the result after 1,500 hours of work by Nimik, an group of crazy Italians who like to build rally cars and turn heads doing it.  Nicolo Lamberti, 35, and Milko Dalla Costa, 51, who run the Italian 'Nimik' rally team, took the chassis and engine of a speedy Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and combined it with the body of a 12bhp Citroen 2CV Fourgonnette.  

The car was created by essentially lowering the body of the Fourgonette over the stripped chassis of the Ferrari and then stitching everything together. Of course, the body had to be widened and the air-intakes fabricated and a thousand other things, but holy Moses, the results speak for themselves.  Capable of 180 mph and going from 0-60 mph in 5 seconds, this demonic 2CV is certainly bound to get some mixed reactions at any  car show: indignant howls of outrage from the Ferrari faithful and smiles of approval from the rest of us.
