Citroen produced one of the more interesting vehicles - the 2CV or more affectionaltely known as the "Tin Snail", for it's shape as well as it's speed.

It could be considered France's answer to the VW Beetle.

Just about everything on this vehicle was unconventional, the seats, suspension, aluminium body..

There's a lot of interest in this beast as a collector's item. I suggest heading over to here to do a bit of browsing...

Citroen and Peugeot have the two best rally cars this year. I'm waiting for Subaru to get their butts in gear and catch up.

Farkit - You should also note that that car is not even French. It's an Audi.

Thanks to DrunkenLimeyBastard for clarifying the meaning of "Citroen"--a dog turd on wheels.

I'd kill for a Renault R5 Turbo II (200+ HP Mid-Engined LeCar)

$48,000,000 (USD) / 5,700 = $8421.05 (cost)

Jeez, what's the markup on these babies?

nice headline :)

I would like to let the record show that I'm a far, far, FAR right wing conservative and I still found the headline to be bloody hilarious. Jolly good show.

I am, however, letdown by the flame-war capacity of this thread. I had hoped for so much more. The best we've had was "He's not the president?" Psssssssh.. please. If that's your best shot, I'm going back to bed.

Don't make me send the GOP fund raising ninjas after you. They're sooooooo hella badass sweet, and they don't even care.
