The first Citroen in history (Type A) was launched in Paris in June 1919. To celebrate this anniversary, Citroen creates the event in the 15th arrondissement of Paris, where it all began. A few meters from the front of the Seine, where the famous factory Javel stood, a street of Paris will be transformed into a night to surprise passersby in the early morning. Over 400 meters long rue Linois, 100 cars and vans representative of 100 years of the brand will be staged for the greatest pleasure of all.

Type A, the beginning of a journey.

DS, if we were to retain only one, no doubt it would be her. Arrived third at the Car of the Century (COTC) international price in 1999, behind the Ford T and the Mini ... and in front of the VW Beetle and the Porsche 911. Everything is said.
