Citroën Traction Avant

It is so fascinating to see a beautiful driving example of an early 20th century saloon car in a stunning petrol blue. Although the Citroën Traction Avant is not as iconic as the Roll Royce’s and Mercedes-Benz’s of the era, its inherent beauty can still be appreciated so many years later.  Something about the long front bonnet and fluid fenders radiate such elegance and class that so many cars seem to lack today. Although far from the luxuries of the Côte d’Azur, this car brings a sense of familiarity of seeing the living heritage of many Italian and French brands such as Lancia and Peugeot cruising ordinarily amongst their notorious cousins of Ferrari and Bugatti.
