The Citroen C5 Airscape is an elegant concept cabriolet which was revealed at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The styling of the C5 Airscape is rather conservative for a concept, especially for Citroen, but the lines are sleek and sophisticated. Similar to those found on many German products like Audi and BMW.

Dominating the front end of the C5 Airscape is the distinctive chrome Citroen badge set into the bonnet's leading edge, joining the projector style headlights to each other. Below these a large prominent centre grill is flanked by two driving lights set into the lower bumper.

From the side the muscular stance, wide arches and sturdy form is highlighted by chrome accents positioned on the apex of the styling lines to reflect the light. The elongated chrome door handle looks more like a reflection than a handle.

The rear of the C5 Airscape is clean and uncluttered, the most notable features being the twin chrome tail pipes positioned either side of the car.

The automatic folding roof of the C5 Airscape is made of carbon, a glazed upper section allows extra light into the interior of the concept.

The interior of the Citroen C5 Airscape concept is upholstered in dark brown leather with chrome accents appearing on the gear lever and dashboard. The steering wheel has a fixed centre and houses controls for the navigation, radio, cruise control and onboard computer.

Powering the C5 Airscape is a 208 horsepower V6 HDi engine which is capable of running on either diesel or biodiesel. The transmission is handled by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Like most recent concept cars the C5 Airscape does its bit for the environment. At speeds under 6 kph and with the brake pedal applied the engine cuts out, starting instantly when the brake pedal is released. Furthermore the air-conditioning, radio etc is powered by electrical energy recovered and converted during braking.
