CitroÃ«n has released first details of a special edition of its funky convertible supermini, the CitroÃ«n C3 Pluriel Charleston. The limited edition model will be unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and is expected to go on sale in the UK in early 2009.
The CitroÃ«n C3 Pluriel Charleston fashions a contemporary reinterpretation of a design theme that once decorated the famous CitroÃ«n 2CV 6 Charleston - a stylistic nod to one of the most iconic cars in history, which this year celebrates its 60th birthday.
With a blend of nostalgic and contemporary styling the CitroÃ«n C3 Pluriel Charleston should strike a chord with both 2CV fans and buyers looking for a vehicle with individual design flair. With its bold two-tone colour scheme of black and Bordeaux red, the sophisticated CitroÃ«n C3 Pluriel Charleston special edition will be positioned at the high-end of the Citroen C3 Pluriel range with premium touches throughout such as gloss-black fittings, leather upholstery and chrome trim. Also fitted as standard are stylish 15â€ aluminium wheels which feature red embellisher centres that add elegance and definition.
