News: CAR OF THE MONTH – STEPHEN PARRISH AND HIS 1934 CITROEN ROSALIE

The public reaction to Stephen’s Citroen Rosalie 10CV (who, of course, goes by the name “Rosie”) is often one of surprise – ‘most people have never seen one or didn’t realise that Citroen’s were ever built in the UK and the fact it is a RWD surprises most’.

The world's first hatchback? - the Citroën Traction Avant. Citroën naturally promoted it as one of the most versatile cars you could hope to find.

News: The Ultimate Off-Roader? Meet the Citroen 2CV Sahara

As nearly everyone knows, there is no such thing as an ‘ordinary’ Citroen 2CV – it simply means that some are more extraordinary than others. On the 1st-2nd April at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show at the NEC, Classic Car Auctions is presenting a very rare opportunity to purchase a Deux Chevaux that is said to be able to climb a 45% gradient.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE CITROEN AMI?

Watching an Ami 6 negotiate a roundabout was one of the most alarming, yet fascinating, sights ever experienced by my younger self - at one point it looked as though the body was at a 45-degree angle to the tarmac as its engine sounded like an irate banshee. A Citroen Dyane looked dramatic enough when cornering but the Ami 6’s distinctive styling made the entire process even more entertaining.

News: 70 Years of the Citroen H

News: Overlooked Gem – The Citroen Dyane

The recent August bank holiday put me in mind of a car-related film that was forever being screened during the 1970s and 1980s, one that was so bad that it must have been aired to drive the young viewers back to school. Go for Take was made in 1972 and starred an array of depressed-looking British character actors but it did boast, as a sole redeeming feature, a chase involving a Reg Varney and the overlooked gem: Citroen Dyane. - Written by Andy Roberts.

News: MEET THE OWNER – MATTHEW SMITH AND HIS CITROEN TRACTION AVANT COMMERCIALE

Back in 2019, we posted a feature about the Traction Avant Commerciale, the car that is arguably the world’s first hatchback. And today, our star classic is Matthew’s 1956 example, which is used and enjoyed the way Citroën intended.

News: MEET THE OWNER – JOSEPH HUTCHINSON AND HIS CITROEN LNA

Through no fault of their own, some cars never seemed to establish a niche in the UK. In Spain, the SEAT 133 was regarded as the heir to the 850. However, British motorists were perplexed by what seemed to be an enlarged Fiat 126. The Cherry Europe was the product of an ambitious agreement between Nissan and Alfa Romeo, but it seemed to have no apparent role in Datsun GB’s line-up.

News: MEET THE OWNER – PHILIP GREAVES AND HIS CITROEN BX 16TRS

It is rather dispiriting to read how few examples of the BX survive in the UK, and Philip Greaves’ 1984 16TRS is one of the earliest on the road. His first experience of this very desirable Citroën was travelling in the model once owned by his mother – ‘Some of my earliest memories were in that car and of its unique dashboard - a glowing spinning drum speedo with LED rev bar and lots of switches’.

News: 50 Years of the Citroen Mehari

There is one very important aspect of the Citroen Mehari – i.e. it is not a car for a poor climate and indeed it was never officially marketed in the UK. It belongs under the Mediterranean sun and indeed I first encountered it in Santa Ponsa some 36 years ago.
