On 24 April 1961, Citroën presented AMI 6 to the press, to be manufactured in its new plant in Rennes, France. First launched in a saloon model, the station wagon version was the most successful, with 550,000 sales of the one million total Ami 6 vehicles sold until 1971. It was the model launched by Citroën to complete its range, which featured 2 CV, ID and DS. The designer - also responsible for the lines of the Traction Avant version - considered it to be his masterpiece! With its unforgettable inverted rear window, it embodied the 60s with its shape dubbed the “Z-Line”.

In October 1980, Citroën presented the 2 CV 6 Charleston at the Paris motor show. The brand-new special edition was limited to 8,000 units, and was so successful that it was added to the range catalogue in July 1981, until the 2 CV reached the end of production. The last 2 CV produced was also a Charleston, released on 27 July 1990. While the period won’t be featured in any rallies, it’s still possible to (re)discover the 2 CV and admire its chic, quirky character and two-colour exterior 40 years after its launch.
