Upfront costs of £3,150 at the time of publishing and then a monthly fee - but with a claimed 43 mile range that would only be good enough for legging it to the local Spar and back.

Yes this is what I dug out from the French last year...small print! THis was what I extracted some time ago with a bit of google translate.

Its happening, 14 year olds in France can drive it (16 year olds in UK)

If you can read/decipher French the full details are here with a range of pricing options. Its headline is from €19.99 per month......but if my French deciphering is correct that is for a years hire, and a deposit of €3,544.
(after a 1st rent of € 3,544 in Long Term Rental over 48 months for 10,000 km / year ecological bonus not deducted (900 €) google translate!)



Full details (in French) from the horses mouth ie Citroen here

I just can't see Clarkson in this Ami nor The Stig taking it for a lap of the track!!!

Both would be fun to see though ;)

Jim, Top Gear no longer has Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond or James May presenting. The replacements are Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff, Paddy McGuiness and Chris Harris. I cannot recall if The Stig is still there though.

Shows how much I watch the telly or take any interest in such things really... For me, TG lost the plot years ago and I stopped watching...

The names of the new TG hosts mean nothing to me...

I was honestly unaware it had all changed.... Last time I saw Clarkson on some puerile TV quiz show he looked so ill and old I'm surprised he made it to the end of the show before keeling over!

Clarkson's documentaries are superb, in contrast to the TG nonsense.
The one he did on the Arctic Convoy is exceptional. I was particularly interested in that one as our GP had been on that run.

I have to agree there Steve, Clarkson has done some great stuff and my favourite was his sponsorship of IK Brunel on the BBC series Great Britons. It seems hard to find a decent watchable copy but here is a snippet:

His presentation of the Victoria Cross program was sublime.

I seem to recall that he did a very good job of presenting IKB as one of the greatest Britons. The only reason IKB came second is that he came up against Mo Mowlam championing Winston Spencer Churchill.

Plenty video's on it. I guess all those who fancy one will have given a few a watch.

Apart from Citroen's official one none so far on the thread.

Six minutes


Or the full 20

As it happens I'm currently reading a biography of IKB and his work.

He was actually Anglo-French (his dad Marc was French and fled here to escape the Revolution)

It's easy to see some of his work as monumental failures until it is understood he was pushing well beyond the limits of what was believed possible or reasonable for the most part and was so far ahead of his time... He never feared to tread into totally unknown territory and often this both cost him dearly whilst at the same time pushing the boundaries so far that still today we are reaping the benefits of his far-reaching work...

He enjoyed an all too short life and totally wore himself out... He never enjoyed good health and the pressure he put himself under hardly helped...

I would concur that he is the greatest Briton and whether or not Churchill should have been accorded that accolade is a completely separate argument.

I'm no fan of Clarkson but do agree the one documentary I've seen of his was truly excellent: the one about the raid on the German submarine pens in occupied France... I must try to watch his others... They look good.

Yes exactly Jim the body-kit just gives it a bigger 'beefier' look ...very customisable (imo) :wink:
