Citroen has unveiled a special edition version of its C1 city car – JCC+, which takes influence from the French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.

It’s not the first time the French manufacturer has worked with Castelbajac, having previously created a special edition C3 JCC+ in 2018, along with a one-off electric E-Mehari art car.

As with those two models, this new C1 edition utilises blue, red and yellow accents – the trademark colours the designer is known for.

Based on the top-spec C1 Flair, this JCC+ sits at the top of the city car’s line-up, with exterior differences including red door mirrors, blue centre caps on the black 15-inch alloy wheels and yellow graphics. The model also comes with a contrasting black roof, tinted windows and matte black wheel arch extensions.

In the cabin, the most noticeable features are the bright red dashboard and blue seats – though it also comes with white and gloss black elements – along with designated floor mats.

On top of the Flair version – which comes equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a reversing camera and a speed limiter – the JCC+ also brings automatic lights and climate control, which are two things usually on the options list.

Unlike the regular C1, this model is only available in five-door form (a three-door is normally offered), along with a 71bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine.

Prices for the C1 JCC+ start from £14,135, which is £685 more than the Flair grade. Order books are now open, with first deliveries set to arrive in July.
