Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept

Citroën and Rip Curl are pursuing their collaborative efforts to unveil the ultimate mobility vehicle: SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept, an all-new interpretation of SpaceTourer dedicated to outdoor pursuits. The off-road abilities of the modern van have been boosted through a 4WD conversion by Automobiles Dangel and for ultimate freedom, it has been kitted out as a compact camping car by Pössl.

Driven by a shared devotion for creativity and innovation, the two brands are expressing their passion for adventure and exploring new ideas and possibilities, which Rip Curl refers to as “The Search”. The partnership fulfils this expression to create a compact camping car concept that blends style and functionality. SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept is an opportunity to experience an adventure; perfect freedom and care-free.

EUROPEAN TOUR: RIP CURL TOUR BY CITROËN!

747x400_SpaceTourer_RipCurl_Tour

From October 2017 to January 2018, SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept will be touring Europe with the Rip Curl team. The tour features 22 stop-offs at Europe's top surfing and skiing locations in the UK, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. At each destination, visitors will be able to try out the latest innovations from the renowned surfing brand for free in the company of Professional Team surfers.

INSPIRED BY SURFER VANS

SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept embraces the tradition of an iconic surfer van,
right down to the two-tone exterior paint job. The chosen colours evoke a resistant and durable vehicle in harmony with nature: a dark khaki for the upper section and a bright beige below.

The high-vis yellow strip emphasises the van’s horizontal bodywork and adds a fresh flash of colour between the two shades.

The rising roof, also in dark khaki, opens to reveal matching materials, with a khaki fabric. A large net and high-vis yellow fabric borders, echo the bodywork colour.

FROM MODERN VAN
TO MODULAR CAMPER

Converted by Pössl, the Campster, based on SpaceTourer, is an ideal blend of the passenger car and leisure vehicle.

The camping car version of SpaceTourer was designed to be a “Swiss army knife”, an “all-in-one” vehicle that is a pleasurable place to recharge your batteries after a day in the great outdoors.

The medium-size SpaceTourer has been transformed into a multi-function van with a rising roof, bringing passengers a range of special interior fittings that are functional
practical and optimise the available space.

Equipped with two electric hands-free sliding side doors, the Campster can transport seven people in absolute comfort in “daytime” mode.

In “nightime” mode, the Campster can accommodate 4 people on two double bunks. To make living inside the Campster more comfortable, the rising roof provides good ceiling height so you can stand up without crouching.

PLAY ON CONTRASTS

The harmonious interior is coordinated with the external colour scheme. The seats keep the versatility of the concept car, with a two-tone horizontal line echoing the exterior theme and creating a greater sensation of space inside. The main part of the seat is upholstered in elegant khaki leather with horizontal embroidery for a ribbed effect.

MODULAR KITCHEN & DINING AREA

A fitted kitchenette with a gas stove, sink, and storage means meals can be prepared just as easily as at home.

Passengers can enjoy their meals comfortably seated thanks to a large fold-away and sliding table joined to the kitchenette and facing the rear bench.

NUMEROUS STORAGE COMPARTMENTS

In addition to the boot, which can be used to safely store larger luggage items, a number of locked storage compartments are located around the seats, beds and boot for storing everyday objects away from prying eyes.

A RESTFUL NIGHT

In an impressive feat, SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept contains two sleeping areas for four people. The back seat folds out to create a flat sleeping space free from any lumps thanks to a mattress topper, providing a comfortable double bed with its own privacy within the van.

A second double bed is concealed in the rising roof. Opening the roof provides access to a mattress in the roof space, for an extremely comfortable bed above the cabin.
