If the show won't come to France, then France will go to the show. So while it may be Frankfurt's turn to host the alternating European car show this year while Paris sits this one out, that doesn't mean that French automakers haven't got a few tricks up their sleeves. Although we're still waiting to see what Bugatti has got in store for the Frankfurt show, Renault is coming with three new electric vehicles, Peugeot's using the venue to unveil the new 3008 HYBrid, 5008 and 308 RCZ, and Citroën has got the new C3 and its premium counterpart DS3 to show off. But the chevron-emblazoned PSA auto division has just released a teaser shot of yet another vehicle on the docket for unveiling in Frankfurt, and it could be the most interesting of them all.

Not much in the way of information accompanies the teaser you see above, but reports suggest this could be a new C1 or C2 hatchback. Bearing ties to the original, iconic 2CV that put Citroën on the map, the new show car isn't expected to form part of any other Citroen project currently under way, so we'll have to wait until the show to find out more. Check out a higher-res version of the image above by clicking on it, as well as the super short press statement available after the jump.

And 2CV.

I wasn't familiar with what the old 2CV looked like, but after a google search, I'd say there's a bit of similarity, but plenty of difference. This is a good thing... lol

Definitely has some similarities with the 2CV, but it still looks thoroughly modern...could be interesting

Wonder if it will be a minimalist or a highly contented vehicle. If it follows the original 2CV spirit it should go down the minimalist route.

Sweet. I like Citroens for their creative, interesting design. Can't wait to see this in full light.
