Click above for more renderings of this Citroën 2CV concept

Wondering what the heck you are looking at above? It's a concept by French designer David Portela of what a revised and reintroduced Citroën C2V could look like. Although the original design couldn't really be described as pretty, it's the personification of Megan Fox compared to this unfortunate conglomeration of Picasso-esque designs. Portela describes his creation's shapes as being "inspired by the original car, but also by the aeronautical world. They are a blend of the 1940-1950 style and futurism." We think it's more like a combination between an old steam locomotive and a submarine, but what do we know?

Amazingly, Citroën has never contacted Portela. We can't imagine why. In any case, we'd love to see a 2CV revival to commemorate its 60th anniversary. If that does happen, hopefully the result won't look anything like the concept you see here.

      I thought the arched roof of the current C3 was supposed to suggest 2cv. In other words, I thought it had already been revived.

      That's a nice and shiny Art Deco beer keg on wheels!

      Those French are so...French.

        So THAT'S what an intergalactic kegger looks like!

        Actually, the name sounds suspiciously portuguese, but seriously, what's that, Tin Man's car?

      It appears David Portela was inspired by an insect. That or he had some very weird dreams.

      I had hoped for a "Viable Production car" that might be built. This has ZERO chance of production.

      August fools day, evidently. My first reaction is Messerscmitt, followed by my lunch. This is so bad in so many ways. Total waste of electrons.

      Looks aside (AWFUL) - wasn't the whole point of the original C2V to be easy to build and inexpensive to make and purchase?

      Looks more American hot rod than French automobile art...

      Hum... nice effort, but it's a fail in many departments. The 2CV already exists, it's been replaced by the Berlingo.
      I agree this one is "a la mini", a little pleasure that is everything but economic. This one has no room, but very pretty (the original was ugly too). The barrel shape is out of touch with the original.

      Strangely enough, when I looked at the picture (before reading the title) I thought, "Damn I hope that's no the new CV2."

      Like the looks or not it is fantastically odd!

        IMHO, only the front part of the greenhouse is odd. Fix that, and the rest of the car look fantastic. Love the details especially on the headlamps and the wheels.

      A steampunk's wet dream.

      This is a model from the next Transformers. It changes from car to robot to sexual aid. I believe Buzz is the character's name...
