I've been absolutely obsessed with the funky Cactus since I first saw the production car at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It's a seriously unique C-segment hatchback, and come on, it has freaking Airbumps on the doors. Airbumps! Plus, I've heard it's actually pretty nice to drive, and on top of that, it just won the World Car Design of the Year award. I love this thing. A lot.
I was tipped off to the location of the Cactus thanks to fellow automotive journalist Bob Gritzinger via Twitter.
It's not every day you see a Citroen in the US. But here it is, the award-winning Cactus C4, in Michigan. pic.twitter.com/sokgsVeIxQ- Bob Gritzinger (@bobgritzinger) April 8, 2015
So, here's the plan. If you see the Cactus out on the road, photograph it. Email it to me, tweet at me, whatever – let me know where that little guy is. If you see someone driving it, politely ask if your friends at Autoblog can take it for a spin (seriously, do no harass the Cactus driver or do anything dangerous in tracking the car down). I'm local. I'll even buy lunch. And hey, if you're the Cactus' caretaker and you're reading this right now, you already know what to do.
But really folks, let's make this happen. Ewing. Turkus. Cactus. Autoblog. It's a good thing.
UPDATE: First, I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented, emailed, tweeted, and sent smoke signals (okay, that last one never happened). Because of your help, I've managed to track down the location of this C4 Cactus and the folks who control its movements. I'm hoping they'll let me drive it – or at the very least, ride in it. Either way, keep your fingers crossed, and again, thanks for all the assistance. You guys rock.
