The Citroen Lacoste concept is a beach-buggy style concept car (like the Citroen C-Buggy) which was developed through a collaboration between Citroen, and the clothing brand Lacoste. This isn't the first time Citroen have joined forces with a non-automotive company to make a concept car. At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show they unveiled a concept co-developed with the mens lifestyle magazine 'GQ' called the GQbyCitroen concept.

The Citroen Lacoste concept was designed to portray elements of both companies. That means the designers have tried to blend the automotive world with fashion and sportswear. At the same time they have tried to simplify the car and give it a playful and easygoing persona.

The open passenger compartment of the Citroen Lacoste is normally only protected by the windscreen (which can be lowered), and a T-bar which runs the length of the cabin. However if you do get caught in the rain - or too much sun - thin inflatable panels grow out of the T-bar to provide a roof over the entire passenger compartment.

The golf-cart/beach-buggy feel of the Citroen Lacoste is accentuated by the simplistic interior. The dashboard display is made up of a number of oversized pixels which provide the necessary driving information and navigation in a fun and funky way. The unusual dash display was inspired by old-school video games like Space Invaders.

The seats of the Citroen Lacoste are overstitched in tough white cotton, with a weave closely resembling that of a polo shirt - an iconic Lacoste design. Building on this theme, the seatbelt anchor points have "necklines" like a polo shirt.

No complicated hybrid-drive or electric propulsion unit is used on the this back-to-basics concept. Instead Citroen opted to power the Lacoste with a small displacement 3-cylinder internal combustion engine.
