    Looks very similar to the one Dupond and Dupond drove.

    When I was little we vactioned in France once in the early 80s and took a cab to Paris. The cab was a 2CV with the cabbie, my parents, and us two kids in it. The cabbie was a Parisien and it was late on a Friday and he apparently couldnt stand being out in the "rest" of France instead of in Paris. So he was driving like a madman. I still remember the odd smell of the uncatalytic converter engine, how it leaned almost over in turns, how the thing sounded like a lawn mower, and him passing on blind hills doing what seemed like 60mph with my dad in the front seat grabbing an OS handle.Well we came up behind a slow gravel truck and on a bump it dropped a load of gravel and completely shattered the front glass. We pulled over. The cabbie broke out the rest of the glass, found us all some sunglasses and away we went! BTW I think 2CV is pronounced "DEAU-schwoe" and Citroen is pronounced "SEE-tro-en"

    Great! All true. I had two. Be aware, they rust and litteraly fall apart: Don't drive it in Winter on salted roads! Be careful with unleaded fuel.

    i love this car,as well as Fiat Topolino 500 roadsters from the 30s,Fiat Vignale/Gamine Vignale roadsters, and American Bantams from the 30s too. pretty much any car that resembles a real life Noddy/Mickey Mouse/Toontown Car!! you know those old cartoons roadsters classic Disney,Looney Tunes,etc characters drove. i often nick name this style of mini cartoon looking roadster a "Noddy Car" 😊i dont drive though but I have a small toy collection of "Noddy cars". including an actual Noddy car,two classic Mickey Mouse Roadsters,a old Miss Piggy Mcdonalds happy meal pink roaster car,a multi-colored plastic friction powered clown car type cartoon roadster I found at i think Target,and a Benny the Cab from Roger Rabbit happy meal toy. maybe thats why these cars make people happy it reminds them of classic cartoons and childhood!

    Same colour I had as an 18 year old. Going to the Disco with 8 friends in it. But in winter you couldn't close the role top cover, as it shrank, once the sun went down. Best of it, you could crank it over by hand if the battery was flat. Nice memories of my first car.

    Mate - I had a 2cv and a Dyane - brilliant cars loved them both to bits but it has to be said the R4 ( sadly I never had one ) lived longer and sold twice as many so is surely the French peoples car?

    Not really, actually: R4 lasted from 1961 to 1992, vs 1948 to 1990 for 2CV. And the 2CV had been designed mostly before WW2! The more modern design of the R4 and the fact that Renault was a larger car manufacturer (State-owned) allowed it to be sold broader (up to South America), thus a total of 8m cars produced ww vs 5m for the 2CV. But I believe the number of cars sold in France was probably higher for the 2CV.

    I drove one for years although my workmates thought it was ridiculous. Alas it rusted beneath me and the accelerator pulled out of the floor after 100,000 miles. I would love to have another or perhaps an Ami.

    Simplicity, that's what I like about this. No complex electronics or crazy bells and whistles, just four wheels, a transmission, and an engine. Wish they would remake it today, perhaps include an electric variant.

    The 2cv is a old car, discontinued size 1990, but close all parts are available new today (not by Citroën, but only by Citroën specialists like for example the "mehari club de cassis" ) , most the parts are made in France,Belgium, Holland or Germany, inclusive brand new chassis (galvanized steel), or body parts...

    I had a 1977 2CV4 in Germany. My first car, bought it brand new. This video brings back great memories. I don’t think there’s an other car in the world with which you can have as much fun as with what we call back home Ente ( Duck)!

    Not really, the car is very slow the body take gladly any damage, and the suspension is so smooth you can literally take a 180° turn at maximum speed and the car will not roll Edit: also the car already have brakes disc in 1948 so very good stopping power

    In a race around the world a Citroen 2CV can beat a Telsa because, unlike the Telsa, the Citroen never breaks. Ever.

    Good job! I've been thinking about getting one of these for some time. They remind me of my similarly eccentric, low-powered, 4-speed on-the-column, 3-cylinder stroker Saabs. My '64 even had a similar fabric roof. Thanks for the ride!
