Citroen U55 Cityrama Currus: Parisian spaceship from the 1950s!
When we are considering which bus design could be called “the strangest ever built in history”, then this hyperfuturistic double-decker bus certainly comes right on top.
People at the time wondered if this thing came from outer space, escaped from a Flash Gordon movie, or was some sort of a mirage… but in reality this was a very comfortable tour bus built by Citroen on U55 truck chassis for a Paris tour operator Groupe Cityrama. The fantastic shape was designed by the French coachbuilder Currus.
A large section of the upper deck roof was removed in good weather, turning it into more conventional tour bus.
