Rupert Giles' Citroën DS from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Topic: Citroen
Tea With Lemon is a fan site for Rupert Giles' Citroën DS, aka the Gilesmobile from the TV-series 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'. "Giles' car was a grey 1963 Citroen DS. It first appeared in S1's Witch, when Giles drove Buffy to Amy Madison's house, hoping to reverse the spell that was killing his Slayer. This S1 model was a bit different from the DS driven in seasons 2-4 in that the S1 car had a luggage rack and a boxier back end.

After the first season, the Gilesmobile appeared in Inca Mummy Girl, Innocence, Phases, Dead Man's Party, and Gingerbread (among others, but those are the major appearances). Still, its most tragic appearance was S4's A New Man, when Spike crashed (and presumably totaled) the Citroen while the temporarily Fyarl Giles escaped on foot."

Topic: Citroen
Alien Citroën C2 Is Out Of This World -- "Looking unlike anything else on earth, an amazing one-off version of Citroen's C2 VTR supermini has landed in the UK - and it is worth a staggering £108,000! With a similar value to that of a new Ferrari 360 Modena, this alien-esque C2 is the culmination of six months work by renowned modification specialists, SQ Plus." (via linkfilter)

Citroën C4 Transformer Commercial

Topic: Citroen
Nothing moves you like a Citroën I saw the Citroën C4 transformer advertisement on Swedish TV3 yesterday. It was one of the best car commercials I have ever seen. "Citroën's new C4 3-door transforms into a dancing robot." The 30 second TV ad by Euro RSCG's London office was produced by Spy Films in Toronto and directed by Neill Blomkamp. Animation by the Embassy in Vancouver. Music by Les Rythmes Digitales, Jacques Your Body (Make Me Sweat) from the album 'Darkdancer' (1999). Check out The Embassy Visual Effects Inc or see the tv ad at Citroen UK. Read the story on
