    "Citroën 2CV."

    :dopey:

    The Department of Redundancy Department approves!*

    :)

    *This is entirely intended to be playful, of course. I grinned when I read the slip in the article.

    ...

    As for 4wd 2CVs:

    I remember, I only saw one (white and red). Very cool car.

    The ultimate Gran Turismo dream car traction concept... I hope a day, we could setup FWD/AWD to RWD in-game (follow my drift point of view :cool:).

    Definitely a Wednesday want for me. I always have loved the 2cv. Especially the Sahara.
    Who else remembers the 2cv Sahara from Colin McRae Rally 3?

    Out of the now 101 Wednesday Wants, this is probably in my top 5. It combines everything I love, it's quirky, slow, overly complex, and solves a relatively easy problem by completely overdoing it. Oh, and selective yellow lights are my jam.

    You try writing about a car with two engines and try not to be redundant :lol:

    This twin-engined 4WD 2CV was actually featured in Colin McRae Rally 04. That's how I first came to know of it :D

    26 years and 4½ continents and I've yet to drive anything as fun to drive as a 2CV

    Really hoping GT Sport brings out some 2CV goodness

    Except this time . . . can we get the fuel filler cap back? I know these are great on fuel but still . . . we need to top up at some point

    Wow, that's very odd. The 2cv did in fact have it's fuel filler in GT4 and GT5. I guess PD forgot to model it in when they redesigned the car to be semi premium in GT6. If the 2cv shows up in GT Sport, that would make a very cool comparison.

    The 2cv would definitely would be a great addition. Maybe something similar to the Mini Cooper S coming to the game. Instead of the '54 Type A, they'll add a Sahara.

    Actually although they listed the Type A what they gave us was the Type AZ

    Citroën 2CV Type A , from July 1949 to July 1959, 375cc, & 8 bhp
    Citroën 2CV Type AZ, from Oct 1954 to Oct 1955, 425cc & 10½ bhp

    Also the Type A had an oval around the chevrons on the grill, the AZ had the oval removed
