Even within the realm of Citroën’s unique creations, the 1980 Karin stands out with its exceptionally unconventional design, seemingly drawing inspiration from the grandeur of Egyptian pyramids. The front end widens prominently and gradually tapers as it ascends, creating a distinctive pinnacle. Surprisingly, the rear end matches the width of the front, giving the Karin the appearance of a pyramid in motion.

Internally, the Karin gained recognition for its layout, reminiscent of the legendary McLaren F1, placing the driver at the center of the car. While the glass-dominated design likely offered a unique experience for occupants, concerns arise regarding the car’s safety in the event of a collision.
