Lots of cars come with a list of options, but Citroën has taken it to a new level by offering customers of its top-of-the-range C6 a ‘designer garage’ worth a cool £112,330.
Developed by acclaimed architects, Neutral - part of the team responsible for the amazing Munich football stadium - the garage is described by its director, Christian Grou, as “an envelope to present the C6 in a truly unique and independent environment.”
Costing three times as much as the flagship executive C6 model, the garage is constructed out of futuristic light transmitting concrete. It features transparent, wrap-around sliding ‘doors’ that allow the C6 to enter from either the front or rear, and which are laced with liquid crystal display (LCD), allowing the owner to switch between ‘pride or hide’ modes.
The multi-functional building not only makes a bold, spatial statement, its design provides the owner with a useable roof terrace and a unique “man-made landscape” to adjoin their home, according to Neutral. Standing an imposing 3m high, the ‘designer garage’ covers an equally impressive 50m2.
Christian Grou added: “Only the Citroën C6 could inspire us to develop such a unique ‘home’ for a car. The C6 is a mould-breaking, bold and individual vehicle that shouldn’t be hidden away in a traditional bricks and mortar building. This garage is an extended expression of the vehicle’s ability to turn heads.”
The Neutral designed C6 garage costs GBP112,330 (GBP95,600 + VAT) fully built.
