Sbarro C3 Pluriel V6, 2004


The Citroen C3 Pluriel is a car that I don't understand. A car that is neither a sedan or a convertible or a pick-up, but a bit of everything at the same time! Moreover, the convenience to discover Citroën is totally absent. These include removing roof racks for a true convertible top. But where does it these famous bars? Nothing is planned to store them on the car. It must be left in the garage and hope it will not rain!


From this, place a V6 engine in the car also becomes an curiosity more. This is what Sbarro did: in slightly lengthening the front, the original V6 engine developing 210 horsepower PSA is stacked in transverse position before.


The roof is now in orange glass, which gives a warm to the interior that takes its seats black and orange to a Citroën C2 VTR.


The body is of course completely redesigned, because the front was extended. Treatment is relatively conventional, with expander wings and new front and rear. See the original treatment of the wing above the headlights.


The C3 Pluriel V6 is a technical feat: installing a V6 engine in a small body is a great achievement and remains an object of lust very strong. The treatment of the bodywork is superb, although some criticize the tuning aspect. After the C3 Profil-R, Sbarro has been round the range with this unusual C3 Pluriel V6.
