The Past of the Future - Citroën Karin (1980)
Looking back at the car industry of the 1980s, the Citroën Karin, was one of the most revolutionary concepts. Because it didn’t have any new models to present at the 1980 Paris Auto Show, the company gave car designer Trevor Fiore the go-ahead to create an original model.
The Karin never made it onto the production line, mostly because it was an unpractical vehicle, but the futuristic design inspired other designers to get passed their traditional way of thinking, and opened the way for the beautiful vehicles we see on the streets today.
