I've never seen one of these and it's so weird and ugly that I find it surprisingly tempting. Wowee.

Citroen has always made very unusual cars, as a child they reminded me of a car from the Jetsons cartoons. My dad always said they were intended to be futuristic cars with advanced safety features. Unfortunately, they are French, and they do not come with the best reputation for reliably. Though they do have their fan club. I suspect more like a cult.

It's beautiful. Not ugly at all.
