Winner of the Shameless Historical Pillaging Award…
There’s little to get a car enthusiast more indignant than when a manufacturer starts ram-raiding its own back catalogue for a cynical dose of nostalgia. The Citroen C3 Pluriel is a dog of thing.
Bold idea maybe, but ballsed up royally from start to finish. ‘So’, reasons Citroen, ‘maybe we can shift a few more of these snotboxes by evoking the spirit of the 2CV.’ (Not, we should admit, a direct quote).
To make matters worse, it’s the most staggering half-hearted attempt we’ve ever witnessed. The original Charleston wasn’t even that much to shout about, just an iffy two-tone black and maroon paint job and a few toys. And now the Pluriel Charelston appears with much the same, minus the charm.
Where’s the crimpled bonnet, the sardine tin roof, the lethal suspension, the boot full of chickens?
