Citroen C-Metisse

When it comes to great sports cars, none come close to the C-Metisse that was unveiled at the 2006 Paris Motor Show. This is a very stylish, very powerful high performance concept car that can hit top speeds of over 155 mph. Not only that, but the Citroen C-Metisse can actually cover about 45 miles for each gallon of gas. The main point of this car was to actually explore new paths in car design. As you can see, the paths that they chose to take are quite stunning indeed.

The first thing that people notice when looking at the Citroen C-Metisse is the fact that it has front and rear gull wing doors. On top of its good looks, it also offers good environmental credentials as well. In fact, it boasts a V6 diesel engine that has a great diesel particulate filter system. On top of this, it also has two completely separate electric motors on the rear wheels. This gives the car the extra torque that everyone loves. When you are just driving this car around town, it can run in zero emission mode. This is thanks to the two electric motors in the back.

Now let's talk a bit more about that diesel engine in the front. This engine is only in charge of running the two front wheels. It is a 208 bhp V6 HDI diesel engine. It is a six speed automatic car that also comes with 4 wheel drive, which makes since with all the engines they have powering different wheels. This car can go from 0-62 mph in just 6.2 seconds.
