Does the Citron C3 plural really deserve to be wiped out by a giant catapult, as The British of The Grand Tour did recently?
Paris Motor Show 2002. Citroen reveals a strange novelty in its position. Based on the first generation C3 city car, the C3 Pluriel shows a playful style and a very explosive portrait by market standards. The convertible starts at € 16,500 and can carry up to four passengers. What’s more?
Unfortunately, there are some bad flaws in the formula. To make it replaceable, you have to manually remove two large roof arches weighing 12 kg each. Once these roof arches are removed, it cannot be rolled over. As a result, most of the Citroen C3 Floriel that crosses the road are fitted with their roof arches, leaving the sliding top optimally open. Without the pleasure of being able to easily ride the hair in the air with a substantial amount of weight and real replacement by the chassis’ necessary reinforcements to make up for the lack of a roof, Florial is nothing more than a bad city car without much interest. . It sold 109,682 copies between 2003 and 2010.
The Englishmen of The Grand Tour paid homage to him in their own way during the last episode of “Carnage a Trois”, especially focusing on French cars that were considered bad. An example of this Citroën C3 Pluriel was sent straight into the air through a giant catapult before colliding with a house.
