Citroën and Rip Curl have joined forces to create a new concept 4×4 designed to travel anywhere in total comfort – the SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept.

The vehicle seats up to seven passengers and can sleep four in two double bunk beds, and also features ceiling straps inside for two surfboards, a kitchenette with gas stove and sink as well as a shower with a curtain. Designed for nomads and outdoor adventurers, the camper-van is intended for everyday use and weekend adventures.

The two hands-free electric sliding side doors open to reveal a vehicle that can comfortably transport seven people in its ‘daytime’ configuration, and boasting a variety of special features to improve comfort and usability.

These features include an air-tight container for wetsuits, a weather station and a safe that can be attached under the vehicle to keep valuables secure while all passengers are out on the water. After a day on the waves, the camper-van can be turned into an area of relaxation with a Lamzac outdoor sofa, a free-standing lamp and blankets.

The kitchenette offers plenty of storage and can be removed and set up outside the van, so campers can enjoy the surroundings and keep cooking smells out of the living area. Adjoining the kitchen, a wide sliding fold-away table and rotating seats let passengers sit down comfortably to eat.

The camper is inspired by the traditions of the iconic surfers’ van, right down to the two-tone exterior paint and contrasting neon yellow touches. The SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept has been designed to combine the features of both a family car and a leisure vehicle, making it an all in one camper van suitable for weaving in and out of city traffic, or spending a day in the great outdoors.
