CitroŽn un gťnie d'avance

by Dominique Pagneux

An excellent book covering all the passenger cars from 1919 to 2002. Pagneux admits in the prťambule that it is hard to come up with any new perspectives or revelations and yet that is precisely what he manages to do with this book.
Bearing a superficial similarity in concept to Toutes les CitroŽn, this book is lavishly illustrated, mainly in colour and is a must-buy even for those who cannot read French.
A companion volume "Petits utilitaires franÁais d'aprŤs-guerre" covering the post-war light commercial vehicles will be published sometime in 2003.



CitroŽn - Daring To Be Different

By John Reynolds

This excellent book traces the fortunes of the firm, from its origins to the present day, examining the changes that have occurred under its three owners, Andrť CitroŽn, Michelin and PSA Peugeot-CitroŽn. It details individual models such as the 2CV, the CitroŽn-Maserati SM and the incomparable DS19, voted Industrial Product of the Century. CitroŽn's other influential designs such as the Type H vans and the GS/GSA and CX series are also celebrated. The text is supported with driving impressions, technical specifications, buying hints and features on subjects as diverse as de Gaulle's Presidential DS, the surviving pre-war 2CV prototypes, the British-designed and built 2CV Bijou, and the experimental rotary-engined M35 coupť.
