Produced and improved continuously in the years 1949-1990, Citroen 2CV became an icon of the French automotive industry. The car was designed before the war. Its creation is connected with the need to produce a simple and cheap car for the masses, in line with the slogan of the company director Pierre Boulanger, “quatre roues sous un parapluie” (four wheels under an umbrella). The car was maximally simplified, economical and allowed for comfortable transport of four people with luggage. Baptized as the ugliest car in the world at the Paris Salon in 1948, it became an object of desire, contrary to the critics’ opinions. During 41 years of production nearly 4 million 2CVs were produced in factories around the world. Today the car has a cult status and is a treat for collectors.
Using 80 COBI construction blocks you can build a model of the cult Citroen 2CV type A, perfectly reproduced in a 1:35 scale. Thanks to the use of elements specially designed for this car the shape of the body is as close as possible to the original. Also noteworthy are the completely new headlamps, which will surely be used in many models of the COBI Historical Collection! The car is equipped with four movable wheels and prints of key details. The Citroen is 11 cm long and 4.5 cm high. The kit includes a plate with the signature of the model and the period CITROEN logo!
