lost concept: Citroen Karin

As a pure design, this car is unbelievably cool.  It takes elements of the 70s wedge shaped concepts, but adds a multi-dimensional feature to them.   Designed by Trevor Fiore, obviously the 1980 Citroen Karin Concept never made it into production—-what dissappoints me more than that, is why this geometrically active design was not more influential on the stale, boxy designs of the 80s.  This car was looking ahead—maybe too far ahead.  I do notice though, that this did the 3 passenger layout featured on the McLaren F1 later…

totally unique, and totally lost.
