Chances are this video will make you grimace and say things like “no, dummy, no stop don’t no stop” at your screen. And yet you’ll still watch it, and it’ll hurt the entire time. Why do we do these things to ourselves? We do, though. We do.
Citroën fired their World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke and his codriver Paul Nagle “due to an excessively high number of crashes,” per a statement released by the team today. This comes less than a week after Meeke had one of the worst-looking crashes of his career at the attrition-heavy Rally de Portugal.
The French. They’ve designed some seriously strange stuff over the years, so it’s no surprise that when PSA Group’s luxury brand let its designers craft their “dream car for 2035,” the scarf-wearing artists came up with something thoroughly wacky. What is surprising is that the brand chose to send 1,360 horsepower to…
Spotted in Nuremberg, Germany, the still-futuristic Citroën DS sits next to its more utilitarian siblings, the 2CV-based Citroën Ami 6 and Méhari. Two Beetles in the background sit in the shadows of the incredible French gems.
With the increasing popularity of hybrid and electric cars, the number of cars that you can buy with two independent motors capable of turning some kind of energy into spinning tires has increased dramatically. Even so, all of these current multiple-powerplant vehicles owe thanks to the addition of electric motors. If…
We don’t deserve the Citroën Cactus. It’s too perfect for this world.
While they may be on their way back, the United States doesn’t really deserve Citroen. We have sinned too much as a nation for their line of joyous and weird cars. But for a little while, Citroen sold some cars in the United States like the DS but not in huge numbers. The Citroen CX, however was never sold here in…
Citroën BX GTi 16 Soupapes, je t’aime!
The Citroën Twelve, also known as the Citroën Traction Avant, debuted in 1934. It was advertised as being a “car of an entirely new conception,” a claim which, at least this one time, holds up pretty well! See? Not all car company promises are wrong and bad.
PSA Group, the parent company of Citroën, DS Automobiles, Peugeot, Opel, and Vauxhall, wants to come back to the U.S. market with low-volume production models, likely on a similar method as Alfa Romeo’s return to the U.S. They are, however, also considering a ride-sharing model as well. In either case, PSA Group have…
Sometimes form follows function. Sometimes form has nothing to do with function. Sometimes you have to take a hairpin turn in your Citroën 2CV van at speeds that are just barely on the safe side of safe.
In the 1950s and ’60s, two-tone paint schemes were a common sight on everything from family station wagons to muscle cars. According to a report by Automotive News, that trend is on its way back to the mainstream.
When you’re in Europe, you can always pick out the American car nerds because something perfectly ordinary, like a Peugeot 208, can roll by and we’ll absolutely lose our shit over it. Well, maybe we’ll be losing our shit stateside soon!
I’m used to seeing old Citroëns lean way over into turns, but here’s a “2CV Speciale” rally car that gets delightfully sideways instead. It’s a car worthy of many, many giggles at how delightfully silly it is.
We say we like weird cars around here. But how weird are you really willing to live with? If you’re up for living in the strangest form of opulent Franco-Italian luxury there is, consider the Citroën SM. You have no idea how great this thing is.
One of the great things about Maryland Public Television’s Motorweek is that it puts even the least sporty cars through their paces, meaning we get to watch a bunch of shitty Chrysler K Cars try to stop from 55 mph, big AMC SUVs try to make it around a slalom, and old French cars designed in the 1930s try to get from…
Charge the Bastille today in your Citroën CX 25 GTI Turbo! Vive la France!
Sir Roger Moore, the third James Bond, passed away this week at the age of 89. As a lifelong diehard Bond fan, I am extremely sad. Of course the only remedy is to remember him, and who can forget the iconic car chase from For Your Eyes Only?
