Geneva 2011: Citroen C6 Noir et Blanc [Live Photos]
For example, the special edition of Citroen C6, called Noir et Blanc (Black and White), is a true eye-catcher both in terms of new colors and materials applied to the company’s flagship vehicle.
The vehicle sits next to the C3 Red Block edition we presented to you earlier. However, while the C3 comes with a bold combination of red and gray, the C6 concept should appeal to a more grown-up clientele.
“Geneva is an opportunity for Citroen to display its flagship vehicle in a dynamic, modern livery developed by the colours and materials unit at the Style Centre,” the French automaker explains in a statement for the press.
Featuring a satin pearlescent white body and a lightly embossed, two-tone black lacquer roof, the Citroen C6 Noir et Blanc also has 18-inch diamond-effect wheels, glossy chrome window rims and gloss black fittings, such as for the rearview mirror housings.
The interior of the C6 Noir et Blanc is upholstered in black club leather on the seats and on the door panel insets, offset by white club leather on the “horse shoe” and pearlescent white lacquer trims. Furthermore, the woodwork is covered in a microfiber fabric with a soft “peachskin” feel.
If the Citroen C6 Noir et Blanc makes it to production, we can also expect an extensive list of interior goodies to arrive as standard.

I prefer light gold metallic and dark blue metallic to this black/white tone, among color variation of this vehicle.
By the way, the Citroen C6 seems a "triumph of engineering" in the field of thermal efficiency for me. Indeed her obsolete V6 petrol unit yielding only 215bhp(155kW) and 30kgm propels her hefty body(1820kg) up to 250-255km/h area, vastly faster than manufacturer data of 230km/h, in well loosen-up example. Curiously her acceleration is mundane, posting 0-62mph in 9.4sec(much slower than the V6-powered Chevy Malibu), so is fuel efficiency(8-9km/l average). On the other hand, her efficiency in high speed area is quite marvellous, thus she is called "an Autoroute queen".
Even the V6 petrol guise does well as above, the newest V6 turbodiesel version shows towering achievement in total area of cruising efficiency, that's a successful product from European automotive industry.
