2CV



I've noticed this car in my street a few times recently - not sure who it belongs to though. Reminds me of my time living in France... 2CV means 'deux chevaux' - 'two horsepower'. A little bit of research tells me that is was produced from 1948 to 1990. The simple bodywork style is Bauhaus inspired. It was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts and is considered to be one of Citroen's most iconic cars.
