Pierre Boulanger, the father of the 2CV, set a brief to his Chief Engineer, Maurice Broglie, for a new car to be codenamed "Becassine" (snipe) to be an "umbrella on wheels" to carry two farmers, along with 50kg. of potatoes or a small barrel of wine at a maximum speed of 60 km/hr. It must travel in good comfort over rough rural roads. Economy was to be a priority - less than 3 litres of petrol was to be used to cover 100 km. The 2CV was a great commercial success: within months of it going on sale, there was a three-year waiting list, which soon increased to five years - satisfy your ineer-@CV with this lovely book. review >>> Extensive coverage about history of 2CV.Good pictures as well.
