2010 Citroen Survolt Art Car

French automobile manufacturer Citroen has just unveiled to the public, through its international showcase titled C-42, the exciting new model that shows the future of its industrial adventurism. Also included in the display is the new ‘art car’ version of Survolt, the company’s concept racing car. It is made by Francoise Nielly, and together with Flavio Melchiorre’s customized a Citroen DS3, the Survolt won the prestigious Citroen Creative Awards Competition.

The vehicle is based on the company’s other concept car REVOLTe. It is a small-sized, sleek coupe fueled with passion for design and motorsports; it is also aimed to be ‘green car’. Suvolt runs on an electric drive-train and battery power alone. It is a zero-emissions vehicle. Under the hood, it has a pair of electric motors capable of producing 300 horsepower; it can run 0-62 mph in under 5 seconds with a top speed of up to 160 mph (260km/h).
