The Citroen 2CV6 was a hugely popular car when new, and continues to thrill enthusiasts to this day
Although probably the world’s best minimalist car, the 2CV became increasingly luxurous. These terms are relative, of course, and additions to the car that motorised a generation of French farmers included improved interior trim and a slightly uprated flat-twin. The best features remained – the loping ride, the comfortable seats and pull back roof – and that helped maintain sales for what had become a cult car even during its production run. Finally laid to rest in 1990, the Citroen 2CV’s place in society is assured, as are its values, which continue to rise.
