Citroen DS9 Headed For Production


Posted on by 4

French automaker Citroen is working on bringing two of its concepts to life, the Metropolis luxury sedan and the Survolt sports car.

The company’s recent attempts to break into the European luxury sedan market haven’t gone well, as the C6 hasn’t sold like Citroen had hoped. The Metropolis is the next step for the company and it could be the new DS9.

“We cannot afford to let the likes of Audi, Mercedes and BMW forge into Citroën’s heartland supermini territory without fighting back and pushing into theirs,” PSA design boss Jean-Pierre Ploue said to Autocar.

He added that selling high-end luxury cars in Europe isn’t easy at the moment, but the new DS9 could do great things for Citroen.

The sports car Survolt has been seen on the roads before, as it was at the Le Mans Classic race giving a demonstration.

“It’s still our intention to put the Survolt into low-volume production, and we’re pursuing the idea of a one-make race series,” an Autocar source confirmed.

Take the Countach as an example, as a teenager I knew they existed and people owned them, but their rarity added to their mythical qualities.

doesn’t he add some nitrous on it? I’m also wondering how to have a flame throwing like that on my car.

Europeans really loves exquisitly designed luxury cars, this suddenly reminds me of Judge Dredd.

I wish more of these kind of vehicles were built (like the Mazda Furai), at least in limited numbers. Take the Countach as an example, as a teenager I knew they existed and people owned them, but their rarity added to their mythical qualities.
