The Auto Biography of the Citroen looks at the history of this unusual vehicle from its pre-war conception through to the last car to roll off the production line in 1990. It explains how the 2CV was intended to be a lightweight cheap car for farmers and the common person and how the designers developed this umbrella on wheels. It also takes a nostalgic look at its many derivatives, including a four wheel drive version and kit cars built on the 2CV chassis. Though the car is often the butt of jokes and given derogatory names such as "dustbin on wheels"--it was manufactured for over 40 years and nearly 4 million were produced. To top everything it beat flashier cars such as Aston Martin and Lotus Esprit to come top of a poll in James Bond car chases. Not bad for a modest little car! The 2CV has become something of a cult car with its unique and quirky design and The Auto Biography of the 2CV provides a brief but fascinating look at this enduring motoring icon.
