Sacre bleu! French firm builds funky Lacoste-based city car concept for Paris show. Anyone for tennis?

Citroen builds Lacoste city car

Citroen thoroughly enjoys slapping us with its big, lemon-fresh hand of quirk, and has put the funky smackdown on us once more with this, the Lacoste Concept.

Set for Paris, this one-off model is - as the name suggests - a car with some Lacoste stuff plastered on it, celebrating the famous French fashion line.

It has tennis-net wheels! The seats are trimmed like Polo shirts! It has a big 'T' hood, because 'T' stands for Tennis, right?

Apparently, the Lacoste Concept is powered by a three-cylinder petrol engine, which is more than enough to power something of this size and weight, meaning the concept weighs about the same as a leather shoe. Or flip-flop.

We'll confirm more details on this size-zero Lacoste concept from the show, so stay tuned for more updates. In the meantime, this as the next C1 - discuss... 

Now share it...
