There is no doubt that the 2CV perfectly encapsulates this phenomenon. With over 5 million cars produced between 1948 and 1991, the 2CV spanned an era that goes from the Second World War to the fall of the Berlin wall, remaining true to its mission. The pared-down utility together with the curved egg shape, made the 2CV a consummate blend of design and technology, timeless and unique in the car industry. It has been the car of choice for rich and poor youngsters, snobs and intellectuals, traditional types and revolutionaries, thus embodying a way of life and an institution. Having a 2CV is like living in a comic-strip, above and beyond the trends and crazes of fashion, untouched by the passing of the years and the decades. This book pays hommage to this fascinating piece of automobile history.
