Powered by a 425cc air-cooled opposed-twin motor driving the front wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission and Trafficlutch – a centrifugal clutch that allows the driver to come to a stop while leaving the transmission in gear. When time you go, simply pull-away by pressing on the accelerator and the centrifugal clutch engages and away you go. Shifting into higher gears is done with the conventional floor-mounted clutch pedal.

2CV are known to be durable and easily serviced. With about 12hp on-tap (when new) I’ll get you up to around 80km/h. You’ll get there in style …at a leisurely pace.
