CitroŽn C5 Airscape Concept 2007

CITROňN UNVEILS THE DROP-TOP GORGEOUS C5 AIRSCAPE
CitroŽn will reveal its head-turning C5 Airscape concept car to the world at this yearís Frankfurt Motor Show. Featuring a carbon-fibre folding roof, striking styling and crammed with innovative technology, much of which is designed to minimise its impact on the environment, this all-new design provides a fresh take on the world of executive cabriolets.
The high waistline, ribbed panels, C6-style concave rear window and sleek, aerodynamic profile help to communicate the CitroŽn C5 Airscapeís exclusive status, while the distinctive exterior design is further enhanced by the 19-inch alloys, large air-intakes, twin chrome tailpipes and long incisive headlamps.
Without question, one of the 4-seater C5 Airscapeís defining characteristics is the automatically foldingtop. Complete with integrated sunroof and textile lining, this carbon-fibre roof resembles a canvas one, a feature so suggestive of up-market cabriolets.
It opens to reveal a sumptuous interior of dark-brown leather and chrome, reflecting the refined and sophisticated nature of the car. The clean, sculpted lines of the dashboard sit alongside the stylish design of the instrument cluster and air vents, while CitroŽnís concept is also equipped with a new-style fixed centred controls steering wheel, incorporating touch-sensitive buttons enveloped in a thin membrane-like covering.
The latest in a line of green CitroŽn concepts, the C5 Airscape showcases important and innovative technology. Fuel economy is managed by an ĎUrbanHybridí system that includes a reversible alternator-starter and super capacitors. This system allows onboard equipment, such as the air conditioning or audio system, to be powered by energy recovered during braking and deceleration, while engine torque can be temporarily boosted when required.
The ĎUrbanHybridí system, which helps reduce CO2 emissions by 24g/km on the combined cycle, also switches off the engine when the vehicle is at standstill, before starting it again instantly once the accelerator is pressed. The fitting of a refined, bio-diesel compliant 208bhp 2.7HDi V6 engine, complete with particulate filter, further minimises any impact on the environment.
Helping the C5 Airscape to deliver levels of performance similar to those of a four-wheel drive car, a further technological advancement sees the introduction of a new ĎSnow Motioní traction control system that provides enhanced driving safety in low-grip conditions.

What's the difference between this thread and the one that Ferrer put up a couple days ago?

I like this Citroen, I just wish they'd bring it over to North America.
