Thank you Robert Opron
The man who designed some revolutionary looking French cars has recently passed away.
French car designer Robert Opron always used to design futuristic looking cars, so he was just the right man to design a successor for the legendary Citroën DS. Apart from the CX, Opron also designed the GS and most notably the beautiful SM for Citroën. Before that he defused the polarizing looks of the Ami 6, turning it into the Ami 8 with a less controversial, but by no means boring looking rear.
After designing these cars, Opron switched to Renault, there he designed cars like the Fuego, the R25 and also the timeless looking Alpine GTA.
Before his retirement, Robert Opron worked for Fiat and as an independent design consultant. He sadly passed away on the 29th March this year, but his spirit will live on in all of his forward-thinking and unique car designs.
