Default Citroen Tubik is the Pot Belly Pig of Concept Cars

Quote:
This is by far one of the most interesting concept cars in a very long time. Previewed ahead of its Frankfurt Auto Show debut, French automaker Citroen claims it is “designed to making travel meaningful again.” We have our doubts as to when travel stopped being meaningful, but it looks as if Citroen wants to add luxury, comfort and fun back into road trips. The Tubik is a “high-tech executive shuttle” and Citroen wants everyone to join in on a “shared, intelligent, connected and eco-friendly journey.”
Few details have been released on the concept car, but a huge collection of photos are available and in this case a picture is truly worth a thousand words. It’s clearly a very futuristic design and something we’d probably expect out of Hollywood. The designers at Citroen even went out of their way to show off all the variety of configurations they wish to integrate with the interior. We’re guessing we’ll see and hear more about the Tubik Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Futuristic, maybe, but a definite homage to the Type H Van, seldom seen in North America but ubiquitous in France at one time.

The staggered front needs to go, and the wheels need to go black. Otherwise, I actually think its kinda cool. Just paint a wizard and some wolves one the side...

I was about to go and look for pictures of this old Citroen "fourgon". I haven't seen one of these in ages but I'm sure there are a few still kicking around.
