From La Maison Citroën
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is a Morocco-born French fashion designer who has created outfits from people ranging from Madonna to Pope John Paul II. At the forthcoming Paris Motor Show a new de Castelbajac design will be on display, not on a catwalk but probably on a turntable in the Citroën display: the C3 JCC+. This limited-edition vehicle—limited, as in 99 of them will be built—is primarily different from a high-end Shine trim package C3 with the exterior color execution, as in a Perla Nera Black body, Aden Red roof with a chevron pattern on top, black Airbumps, black 17-inch alloy wheels with yellow wheel caps, and blue fog light surrounds, most notable.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and the C3 JCC+
The interior repeats the black, red, yellow, blue theme.
Not only will the C3 JCC+ be limited in number, but it will go on sale in France in November through the citroen.fr website and only be available on line.
How very avant-garde of them.
Nowadays in the U.S. market, vehicle manufacturers pretty much are all committed to producing crossover utility vehicles rather than their predecessor type, the sport utility vehicle.
Once the playground of exotic car makers, the definition of a niche vehicle has expanded to include image vehicles for mainstream OEMs, and specialist models produced on high-volume platforms.
Topology optimization cuts part development time and costs, material consumption, and product weight. And it works with additive, subtractive, and all other types of manufacturing processes, too.
