Sbarro

SBARRO C15 AVENTURE AND AXEL ONYX 

Swiss carrossier Franco Sbarro has, over the years, worked his unique magic on Citroëns (and other cars too).

The Sbarro Aventure of 1986 was based on the Citroën C 15 van - the original vehicle's spartan utility is transformed into a shrine to hedonism and sheer, unadulterated luxury.

Front seats swivel and behind the two part rear bench are two occasional seats.

A CX windscreen is employed.

Sbarro Onyx

Above : difficult to detect beneath this exterior is a Citroën (née Oltcit) Axel - the floor pan, doors, part of the roof, bonnet as well as all the mechanical parts of the four cylinder car were retained.

Baptised Onyx, Sbarro revived this name for a ZX-based car, styled by the students at his automotive design school, Espace Sbarro.
