Citroën Metropolis Speeds into China

Posted in Citroen, Concept Cars, Exotic Cars by Dustin Driver | November 11th, 2010 | 6 Responses |

Citroën is moving into China in a big way. A really big way. The fabulous French automaker is building the long and low super luxo barge Metropolis concept for the ever economically expanding nation. It’s fitting, because the Metropolis was designed by the new Citroën Shanghai design team. The car will be called the C9 and will be powered by a gasoline-hybrid drive train—expect a smooth V6 mated to a torquey electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

As you can see, the thing is positively gargantuan. The cruiser carries the same design DNA as the famous Citroën GT concept, sporting and angry visage and long sweeping hood. The C9 will likely be built in the new joint-venture facility announced last July with Changan Automobile Group.
