On the occasion of the historic parade to celebrate 120 years of the Paris Motor Show, which will leave this Sunday from la Place de la Concorde (display from 10:00 and departure at 13:00), Citroën will line up 25 symbolic models from its history, from the very first Type A from 1919 through to the New C5 Aircross SUV from 2018, via the Traction Avant, 2CV, Ami 6, Méhari, SM, CX, etc. A procession of historic models from collectors and the Brand’s Conservatoire museum will give a taste of what’s to come from Citroën’s centenary festivities to be celebrated next year…
