The Citroën 2CV Sahara, a love story

The Citroën 2CV Sahara is one of the forgotten milestones in automotive history. But it still has its faithful lovers, as this wonderful French short film demonstrates…

With its distinctive shape, the Citroën 2CV mobilised the masses in the 1950s. Almost four million examples were built, in a number of unusual guises including the 4X4, with its unique twin-engine all-wheel-drive system. With only around 700 ever built, today the oddities are proving collectable. Earlier this year, 173,000 euros were paid for a time-warp example at auction. This poetic film by the creative studio Maison Vignaux goes some way to explain why they’re so special.
