History car

The roots of the Citroen 2CV6 can be traced right back to 1936 when the first 2CV (Deux Cheveaux) was built in prototype form. Fully 250 such cars were built prior to the 1939 Paris Autosalon but production was halted when Hitler took an acquisitive interest in France. It wasn't until 1948 that the car was finally showed at the Paris Autosalon and full scale production commenced the following year, the cars powered by a 9bhp 375cc engine. This propelled them to a rather glacial top speed of 40mph. The car gradually evolved over the intervening years, and in 1970 the 2CV6 was introduced to the French market, powered by a 602cc engine with 28bhp. This model was subsequently imported to the UK in 1974. In 1979 the entry-level 2CV6 was dubbed the Club and a ritzier Special trim level was introduced with round lights and chrome trim on the doors.

Charleston special edition models appeared in 1980. In 1981 the James Bond limited edition was launched. With stick-on bullet holes, this car was a replica of the 2CV6 that undertook a thrilling downhill dive in the movie 'For Your Eyes Only'. On July 27th 1990, the last Citroen 2CV6 rolled off the production lines. UK sales continued into early 1991.
