About the CITROEN 2CV
The Citroën 2CV lit."two steam horse(power)s", meaning "two taxable horsepower") is an air-cooled front-engine, front-wheel-drive, economy family car, introduced at the 1948 Paris Mondial de l'Automobile, and manufactured by Citroën for model years 1948–1990.
Conceived by Citroën Vice-President Pierre Boulanger to help motorise the large number of farmers still using horses and carts in 1930s France, the 2CV has a combination of innovative engineering and straightforward, utilitarian bodywork — at first with extra thin panels, reinforced by corrugating the metal. The 2CV featured overall low cost of ownership, simplicity of maintenance, an easily serviced air-cooled engine (originally offering 9 hp), and minimal fuel consumption. In addition, it had literally been designed to cross a freshly ploughed field, because of the great lack of paved roads in France then; with a long-travel suspension system, that connects front and rear wheels, giving a very soft ride.
Often called "an umbrella on wheels", the fixed-profile convertible bodywork featured a full-width, canvas, roll-back sunroof, which accommodated oversized loads, and until 1955 even stretched to cover the car's trunk, reaching almost down to the car's rear bumper.
A booklet, in French and English, accompanied the car providing detailed information about the vehicle. 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙙 𝙃𝙚𝙧𝙜é 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝘾𝙖𝙡𝙘𝙪𝙡𝙪𝙨 𝘼𝙛𝙛𝙖𝙞𝙧!

James Bond and Melina feature in an exhilarating quick getaway scene in a yellow Citroën 2CV! Talk about iconic, the scene turned out to be one of the greatest char chase scenes to be filmed in the 80s! That too in a car known as the 𝙏𝙞𝙣 𝙎𝙣𝙖𝙞𝙡!
Melina drives at first, but then crashes the car. So with his characteristic charm and calm-under-pressure, Bond takes the wheel and says, "𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙛 𝙄 𝙙𝙧𝙞𝙫𝙚, 𝙙𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪?”, after which they speed away from their pursuers. What follows are several scenes that truly put the 2CV’s capabilities and toughness to the test.
