The Milanese company started from the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera of the 16-year-old’s father to realise this special project
The Ami is a lightweight quadricycle that brings a breath of fresh air to the electric vehicle scene. With its versatility in juggling cars in city traffic, and a zero-emission commitment, it is an environmentally friendly and highly economical little gem.
The design has several references to the father's DBS Superleggera
Castagna Milano, the famous vehicle customisation atelier, took up the challenge and transformed the French carmaker’s EV into something completely unique. Following the request of a loyal customer, a customised version of the Ami was created for the customer’s 16-year-old son, with an aesthetic touch inspired by his father’s Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.
The new creation features a black body with matt and gloss finishes, interspersed with yellow details that stand out in contrast, reflecting Aston Martin’s distinctive design. Castagna Milano designed 60 unique pieces for this Citroën Ami, 40 of which were eventually used in the construction, made using 3D printing techniques and recycled plastic.
The exterior modification package includes new front and rear bumpers with more aggressive surfaces, skid plates with a glossy black finish that contrasts with the matt bodywork, and a new design for the Citroën logo. The elegant alloy wheels have been replaced with a new set in gloss black with a five double-spoke design, a clear reference to the DBS Superleggera.
Alcantara and Leather for the interior
Inside, the customised Ami sports black Alcantara and leather upholstery with yellow detailing on the dashboard, seats, door panels and roof. The selector has been relocated from the left side of the driver’s seat to the dashboard, freeing up space for an additional storage compartment.
Under the bodywork remains the classic Citroën Ami, with its small 8 hp electric motor and 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, which provides up to 70 km range on a single charge.
This fully customised example is a unique example of how vehicle customisation can lead to truly unique and fascinating creations, combining the aesthetics of a luxury car with the practicality and sustainability of an urban electric vehicle.
