Abstract:

The Citroën 2CV is a cultural icon that formed as essential a part of the French way of life as Beaujolais or Camembert. The pure logic of its engineering and the integrity of its design won it a legion of fans around the world, not least in the UK. Its lifespan covered well over half a century, making it one of the longest-running motoring success stories of all time. Eventually, almost seven million of its various versions and derivatives were built, and today, years after its manufacture ceased, it is still as popular as ever.
