The first is a recently unveiled concept car, based on the Citroën 2CV (Rob’s favourite car). It was designed by David Portella and could be the future face of the Deux Chevaux, who knows? I’m still trying to decide whether I like it or not; it feels a bit like a cross between a Delorian and a cement mixer! More info here (in English) and here in (French).

However, here’s an Auto Express article which has an entirely different prototype which, I think, is a whole lot less appealing than the first. It looks like this:

Reminds me of the old Saab 95 more than a 2CV. Yeuch! Whichever new model (if any) comes out in the future, I still think I’d rather stick with the good old-fashioned version with its economical and ingeniously simple engine, its revolutionary (at the time) suspension and its free ventilation!

Don’t forget this blog has a 2CV Album, where you can see lots of these Ugly Ducklings, which made their way from Belgium to Benin.

Thanks for reading.
