Some amazing stuff on that site. This Safrane wagon looks pretty good apart from the ill-advised trim.

Some AMAZING stuff there!! I was watching the 25 limo too- would be interested to know it's ultimate fate. The 2door BX estate does look unbelievably good!

Heuliez is my favourite coachbulider....That site has been firmly at the top of my favourites for some time now....One of my favourite (although sadly, stillborn) Henri Heuliez concepts is this beauty....

Xantia 2-door convertible 8)

....I'd definately have availed myself of one of these by now, had they made production, given my weakness for convertible Citroens!

Having said that though, I'm glad that Chapron got the nod for the DS Decapotable, as in my opinion the Heuliez 4-door jobbie doesn't work at all! :?

Agreed Mr L, the ZX is lush!However, the Simca, looks great too, but knowing what we know now about them, yes, I agree, expect some "clown car" action within months!!! :lol:

That's where Peugeot got the idea for the 1007 - which is another 'who the f**k signed that off for production????' modern French car.

Maybe PSA got annoyed Renault had nicked all the magic mushrooms for the styling conference on the Avantime!

That simca looks amazingly 'right' (if you like your cars to look like hatches that have had their roof sawn straight off).What i'm saying is, it looks rubbish.

Yes it does rather. I like it but it doesn't look like a great deal of effort went into it. Probably something like 'we need to make a convertible. Oh, erm, yes, pass the hacksaw, soon have that done'.....
