Citroen 2CV Spot

The Citroën 2CV is an economy car produced by the French automaker Citroën from 1948 to 1990. It belongs to a short list of vehicles that remained relevant and competitive for many decades - in the 2CV's case, 42 years. During the 1930s, Pierre-Jules Boulanger created a brief for a low-priced vehicle that would enable two people to drive 100 kg of goods to market at 60 km/h, relatively easily regardless of the environment. This car was dubbed the TPV (Très Petite Voiture - "Very Small Car") and was engineered by André Lefèbvre. Michelin and Citroën managers decided to hide the TPV project from the Nazis during World War II. After the war, five TPVs were found, three of them in a barn; the other two were disguised as a pickup or destroyed. Boulanger had six years of war time to make improvements and, until the discovery of the TPVs in the barn, it was believed the only two prototypes had survived.
