The buggy-looking concept certainly has a lot of reference to the image of Lacoste, one that promotes a colorful, vibrant, and sporty lifestyle.
It features golf ball-style alloy wheels plus several parts that resemble sections of a tennis net on certain sides of the body.
The conceptâ€™s interior is also replete with Lacoste references including t-shirt-inspired seat trims that hits close to the French clothing brandâ€™s overall style.
One of the coolest features of the door-less concept is the T-shaped structure that extends back to the boot like a “backbone”.
It hides an auto-inflatable hood that deploys all the way along the backbone to form a soft-top roof to somewhat protect passengers from the elements of natures.
At 3.45m long, 1.80m wide and 1.52m high with a 2.30m long wheelbase, the concept model is roughly the same size as a Citroen C1.
Power comes from a three-cylinder gasoline engine, with the French firm claiming that it offers “plenty of performance on tap to power a vehicle of this size and weight.”
