Well I for one

quite like it. Its a lot better than that shite you had from peugoet.

Now does that make me feminine? I dont know, but I do want a MX5. So what does that say :)

Name fail

Who in their right minds would buy a car called "Revolte"?

The word's too similar to Revolt (to rebel against authority - 'leccy cars are hardly revolutionary!), which in itself is too similar to Revolting (disgusting).

Never mind the apparent concept of suicide doors with no central pillar - doesn't exactly inspire feelings of safety...

They're certainly right about the feminine design

That thing couldn't look more feminine if it was ultra absorbant with an easy applicator.

Clever marketing though. If you want to sell something that's bound to have so little accelleration it should be banned from motorways and uinrestricted A roads then you are best off appealing to the market sector with the least knowlege of how a car actually works.

This is definately aimed at the "what car have you got? "A pink one" sector.

I can hear the guffaws from Clarkson, even from here...

"Suicide" rear doors? Huh? WTF were they thinking???

It'll never see the light of day.

It looks nothing like the 2CV!

Granted, it looks like a development of recent Citroen designs, but no way does it look like a 2CV.

Why are manufacturers constantly doing this?

Our imaginary car is better than your imaginary car...

So what, just make one already, then you can claim to have the better car.

No, that would be too easy

So I will resist the temptation to make a pun of the car's name and appearance.

Concept

It's a concept, real question is are Citroen planning to do what VW, BMW, and FIAT have done with the Beetle, Mini, and 500.

Another one

Another of the nicely rendered and photoshopped images. Which will never get on streets as will be deemed too risky, modern and extravagant by execs. Sorry guys, time of revolutions is over, move along...

Considering some concept leccy cars, this isn't too bad looking, and it certainly brings forth more positive thoughts than the old Tin Snail.

WTF !!!!

As a 2cv driver i am bloody revolted by that pile of purple Shite !!!!

The idea behind the 2cv was its simplicity, which is not something you can duplicate in a modern car

Wtf is that front grill all about it looks more like its off a bloody jag ....

Well let it be said if i ever see one of these if they ever make it to production i will most likley be giving them the finger as i drive past .. and I will do my best to make sure they are not welcome at 2cv meets !!!!!

Much better modern redisgn of the 2cv (prolly done by some student)

Appeals to women?

Extend the nose by 8", increase the rake on the rear windscreen, and replace those pink interior "mood-lights" with blue "hardcore lighting" and it instantly appeals to blokes.

Daft designers...

Oh, wait, it's a hybrid. FAIL.

“a lively performer with strong acceleration”.

@psymon

So logically you'd ban lorries, vans, coaches and buses from A-roads and motorways too?

If it were launched in the UK it might conceivably get a different name - the 'Evasion' was renamed 'Synergie' for the UK market.

@Vincent

That's how you know how far a car is away from reality -- look at the interior. If it looks like the flight deck of the Enterprise, this car ain't gonna see the light of day for at least 10 years.

Advice to riders wanting to avoid back injury

Stuff a couple of ripe camemberts down your pants before nestling your 'tush' in those seats.

You also may want to wear a couple of camemberts 'princess leia style' to avoid head injuries from the evil-throne headrest.

If life gives you Citro(e)ns make Citronade ...

Hmmm, let me see...

We're Citroen. We made the DS - one of the best looking cars of all time, which still looks futuristic today. Collectors covet them and they still turn heads wherever they're seen. We also made the 2CV. Which one shall we revive? I know, let's bring back the butt-ugly corrugated-iron pram.

FAIL coz it should have been a gorgeous 'leccy DS as George Jetson (and aManFromMars too, for all I know) would have driven.

".....this car ain't gonna see the light of day for at least 10 years."

By which time it'll seem rather dated in a slightly quaint "product of its time" sort of way. Just like the 2CV. NOW I UNDERSTAND!!!!!11!!!!

Thank you for clearing that up.

Nothing like the original...

First off I'm a Beetle nut and not into 2CVs...

but the original 2CV was made for french peasants and was designed to be easily repairable (ie you black monder could make replacement parts)... it was made to be used by farmers and that sort of people - it I also remember correct Porsche helped design the engine but this maybe myth...

Anyway this car doesn't seem to have any of it's original design trates.

Mike

PS wonder if Citroen will redesign the Amiy 4 and 8. Personally I don't understand why car manufacturers do this with their original designs, the original Beetle was iconic for it's original design (both car and engine) but the new Beetles are based around the Golf and share none of the design other than they look kinda similar - I'm not expecting a new air cooled Beetle but why bother with the same name especially if it's just a poor copy??

Please give them an English dictionary

and tell them to look up 'revolting'.

They'll see a picture of the new 2CV

What was wrong with the old one? It had charm, just stick a few batteries in the back!

Steal from someone else

Is it just me, or does the whole design look like a Mazda RX-8 squished lengthwise by about a quarter? We have suicide doors. We have a front grille that's identical to the Mazda. We have the bonnet curve. We have swoopy interior and seats. In fact, let's face it, we have the same car.

Except that where the RX-8 goes like shit, the Revolte simply *is* shit.

C3

I thought that the Citroen C3 was the reincarnated 2CV - and a rather nice design, which isn't obviously retro like the new mini, but definitely brings the 2CV to mind.

This one just brings its own name to mind. Yuk.

That thing between the legs...

is obviously a holder for the ladie's mobile phones.

If these ever come to fruition and you see one of them embedded in the central reservation, with a woman behind the wheel with a smile on her face, you know she just got a call and had an orgasm.
