A number of prototype CitroŽns made their British debut at the 2009 Classic Motor Show thanks to a joint effort by the CitroŽn Car Club, 2CV GB and the Traction Owners Club in conjunction with CitroŽn UK.

Unfortunately, my camera played up and I only managed to get two photographs.

This record exists thanks to the generosity of Nigel Wild, Maurice Dilly, Brian Drummond, Mick Holmes, Dot Moran, Cliff Noon, David Boyd, Mick Popka and Franklin Rugg.

CAVEAT The lighting at the NEC is not conducive to good photography and all the images apart from those taken before the lighting was switched on had a pink hue. I have attempted to restore the original colours.

TPV

This pre-production 2CV dates from 1939 and features water-cooling, light alloy construction and a very complex suspension system, none of which made it into the production vehicle launched in 1949
