Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, a famous fashion designer and couturier, had already produced a few memorable Citroen special editions, such as the C3 JCC+ and the E-Mehari Art Car. This time around, he graced the C1 JCC+ with his attention.

The car comes in five colors for customers to choose from: white, black, red, and two shades of grey. Whichever you pick, you will be getting tinted windows, a black roof, fender flares, and 15-inch Planet Black wheels. Mirrors, hubcaps and c-pillars boast new color accents in red, blue, and yellow, and there are JCC logos scattered throughout the entire body and cabin.

Inside, the infotainment display now resides within a black frame, there is a crimson ornamental insert in the dashboard, the air blowers are white-rimmed, and JCC emblems are embroidered into the seat backs.

The fashion-conscious C1 JCC+ comes based on the Shine specification, which features height-adjustable driver’s seat, power/heated side mirrors, central lock system, 7” touchscreen, reversing camera, light sensor, HVAC, speed limiter, hill climb assist, and support for a variety of services including Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Mirror Link. You can pay extra to add keyless entry and launch control options.

The car’s one-liter, three-cylinder engine remains unmodded, which means that it still sends up to 72 hp (54 kW) and 93 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque to the wheels via the usual five-speed manual gearbox.

Prices remain to be announced for the Citroen C1 JCC+ by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
