2011 Geneva Auto ShowJust the Facts:
- The C3 Red Block is a new paint job for an already funky family hatchback.
- It debuts alongside the C6 Noir et Blanc and DS4 Purple in Geneva.
- Citroen calls them concepts, but these are all based directly on production cars.
GENEVA — Citroen is bringing three new concept versions of production models to Geneva, including the C3 Red Block, the C6 Noir et Blanc and the DS4 Purple.
The French automaker did not reveal many details on the concepts, other than to say that the C3 Red Block and C6 Noir et Blanc provide "new and expressive approaches to colors and materials." Meanwhile, the DS4 Purple "reinterprets and takes inspiration from the techniques of jewelry craft."
The C3 Red Block concept features a matte-gray paint scheme with red accents on the wheels and windows. Otherwise, it's unchanged from the C3 production car.
Edmunds.com says: Looks like a quiet Geneva show for Citroen, but there should be plenty of leggy models standing next to these modestly revised cars. — Paul Lienert, Correspondent
