Citroen Karin

With no car to show at its home motorshow in Paris in 1980, Citroen let its designer Trevor Fiore loose to build a model for the stand. Looking at the pictures he took the opportunity and ran with it producing this 3 seater (central driver) trapezoidal wedge of a car. As said this was just and un-drivable model for display but it does show what happens when the handcuffs of sensible design are removed and the brief is just to create something. It’s a shame such risks are not taken by car manufacturers today who are more likely to produce less flamboyant concepts. I mean just look at that steering wheel, awesome.
