(from Peugeot/Citroen) Looking
unlike anything else on earth, an amazing one-off version of CitroŽnís
C2 VTR supermini has landed in the UK Ė and itís 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.
Loaded with £22,000 worth of stereo equipment from sound system experts
Alpine, including 20 speakers and 8 subwoofers and 11 amplifiers, the
futuristic C2 by SQ Plus belts out an incredible 15,780 watts Ė similar
to an average nightclub Ė guaranteeing that itís heard before itís seen!
Incredibly, the transmission tunnel has been cut out to provide a
smoother floor and allow the fitting of an F1-style single centre seat
with aircraft-style steering wheel. The door mirrors have been replaced
with pod-mounted cameras transmitting to TV screens across the
dashboard, while the rear view mirror is also replaced by a further
camera located in the rear wiper mounting.
On the outside, the C2 by SQ Plus has also been radically modified Ė
even the filler cap has been moved! A Cituning wide arch body kit, twin
Powerflow exhausts which emerge from the front bumper, 20" chrome alloys
and Mr Chilliís air bag suspension have all been added while the coup de
gr‚ce is the stunning silver re-spray with airbrushed paint finish worth
Phil Leach, Managing Director of Manchester based SQ Plus said: "We set
out to build the most unbelievable car out there, using a model that
people can both relate to and afford. It was an easy decision to go for
the CitroŽn C2, which is without question the new Saxo and the next big
thing in modifying."
Anyone thinking of buying a new C2 will be relieved to find that the
original VTR, with alloy wheels, alarm, CD player, remote control
central locking and ABS with EBD and EBA, is available for almost
£100,000 less than the SQ Plus version, at just £10,095 including
CitroŽnís current cashback offer. On top of this, one yearís free
insurance is available for customers aged over 21 who buy via the
Companyís Elect 3 Finance scheme. Prices for the rest of the range start
at under £6,500.
