Citroën My Ami Buggy: a limited series sold out in 18 minutes
It is an understatement to say that the Citroën Ami surprised at its presentation. This small car without an electric license, with a symmetrical profile, is experiencing a real craze, despite youthful worries, which today seem behind it. Now that its career is on the right track, the chevron brand has decided to continue to shine the spotlight on this model. First with a My Ami Buggy Concept concept car, unveiled in December 2021. Open to all winds and equipped with studded tires, it brought a fun scent of escape. The real surprise is that Citroën had the nerve to produce a production version.
Admittedly, the style of the standard Citroën My Ami Buggy is a little watered down compared to the concept car. The wheels are more conventional, there are no more storage bags in the side protection arches, nor the cushions on the seats… But the style is still cute. The body abandons the bluish gray “Ami blue” for khaki green, still tinted in the mass. This is accented with bright yellow colored elements, both inside and out. The glazed roof gives way to an opening canvas element, the doors disappear in favor of tubular elements and the sheet metal rims are adorned with a golden hue. Thus open to all winds, the Citroën My Ami Buggy is in the tradition of carts designed to navigate the coast, like before it the Ligier JS8 Plage and Be Up, Aixam Mac or the strange Volteis V+ designed by Philippe Starck .
