After the large Citroën vans transformed into Type H, the bodybuilder Caselani has unveiled a kit giving the Berlingo a 2CV Fourgonnette look. This will be marketed under official license from Citroën, which has given the green light to the project.
Caselani struck again. Since 2017, the Italian coachbuilder has been designing kits to give a neo-retro Citroën Type H look to the brand’s vans with chevrons. And he markets them under official license. The firm first tackled the big Jumper before rolling out the concept to the Jumpy and Spacetourer. Also with multiple variants: motorhome, food truck, flatbed… Caselani is now presenting its reinterpretation of the Citroën 2CV Fourgonnette.
A Berlingo with a retro flavor
Rounded front end, round headlamps detached from the bodywork and flanks in the look of corrugated iron can be guessed on the only image published by Caselani as a teaser. The company therefore descends from a segment and will use the current Citroën Berlingo, based on the modular architecture CMP of the Stellantis group (PSA side), for its next creation.
A 2CV kit approved by Citroën
The 2CV Van kit for Berlingo has been in the works for some time at Caselani. Its design having been validated by the style department of Citroën last spring, official license obliges, it can now materialize. Like the Type H models and like the standard Berlingo, the vehicle could also be offered with a 100% electric engine. Thermal engines will remain on the menu. The “Berlingo Fourgonnette” could only be marketed in utility, like the 2CV paneled in its time, but this also remains to be confirmed.
