2009 Citroen C3 Pluriel Charleston

Designed to resemble the 1981 2CV6 Charleston (shown here), the C3 Pluriel Charleston adds a red-on-black two-tone paint scheme, patterned after cars from the 1930s. While the 2CV6 Charleston made do with quilted velour seating, the C3 Pluriel reincarnation adds leather-trimmed seating, along with black trim and chrome accents.

The special-edition car/convertible/pickup will fittingly be unveiled at the 2008 Paris motor show, and will reach dealers across Europe in early 2009.
