Citroen 2cv6 Owner Story
There are lots of things I love about the Citroen 2cv. It’s a curiously endearing car that somehow survived 40 years in production (and the Nazi’s) and despite having bucket-loads of charm, was mis-understood by nearly everyone for most of that time. It’s genuinely refreshing to get behind the wheel of a 2cv today, which sits at the opposite end of the scale compared with modern cars – being lightweight, analogue and wonderfully simple.
The Citroen 2cv6 was fitted with a twin-cylinder, 602cc engine, producing 27bhp. See the engine start up in this video.
