3/7/2006 France : Citroën creates a car for 2054
Christian Volckman, the director of "Renaissance", had already looked into the subject of automotive design, so he naturally came to see Citroën. "Initially, I wanted Karas, the hero, to drive a DS, so we went to ask Citroën for permission […]. Then Citroën suggested that we work with their designers. Their proposals were truly visionary. The final design of the car, produced after three months of close cooperation, perfectly fits the futuristic backdrop of the film ».
For the needs of "Renaissance", Citroën had to adapt to the constraints of animation films. Meeting the requirements of the production staff was a challenge that sparked keen interest among the design team.
Citroën designers immersed themselves in the atmosphere of the film, and came up with a futuristic but realistic car, reflecting the graphic world created by the director.
The final design shows a vehicle whose clean, flowing lines reflect the pursuit of aerodynamic perfection that is specific to Citroën vehicles.
The eye-catching front end creates an impression of power, while the sharper lines of the rear end suggest stability and dynamic performance. The attention to detail, illustrated by the design of the wheels, for example, also contributes to the overall look of the car, accentuating its elegance.
