28Chris Harris explains why the world's best car is... the Citroën 2CV?

Most recently we've seen Chris Harris in the driver's seat of a Jaguar F-Type, a McLaren P1 prototype and a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. And outside the car, there was his indignation over the demonization of the Porsche Carrera GT after Paul Walker's death. So you might not expect him to say of a 1957 Citroën 2CV with all of 12 horsepower, "it's the antidote to all the modern stuff I drive."

8Visit this secret Citroën stash outside Paris with XCar

With models like the 2CV, DS and SM, Citroën established itself as a home for quirky styling and out-of-the-box engineering, and in many minds the brand defines the look of the classic French car. In a recent video, XCar ventures inside Citroën's secret warehouse outside of Paris where the brand keeps many of its rarest and most significant cars.

6Seinfeld tours with Citroën 2CV and French standup in latest CiCGC

Jerry Seinfeld has released his latest Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and the new episode is dedicated to all things French. Or at least as French as one can get in New York City. The show follows a 1950 Citroën 2CV and French comedian Gad Elmaleh as both try to endure Seinfeld's attempts to navigate the metropolis. Of course, Seinfeld and Elmaleh spend plenty of time stalled in the ancient piece of budget French engineering between stops at various French establishments around the city.

9We're pretty sure this is NOT where baby Citroëns come from

Automotive assembly plants can appear as different as the cars they produce, but the fundamentals are basically the same. Parts go in, they're put together, and cars roll out. And that, boys and girls, are where cars come from.

172Man stranded in desert builds motorcycle out of his broken car

According to Merriam-Webster, ingenuity can be defined as "skill or cleverness in devising or combining" or "cleverness or aptness of design or contrivance." We'd say that's an apt description of a Frenchman named Emile who reportedly found himself stranded in the deserts of Northwest Africa after breaking a frame rail and a suspension swingarm underneath his Citroën 2CV.

20Citroën working on neo Deux Cheveaux?

Citroën's next look into the future appears to involve a look into its past: according to Car Magazine, the French firm is planning a 3CV that will make a modern case for the beloved 2CV. It isn't expected until 2013, so only a few brains inside Citroën have any idea what it will look like, but the prognostications suggest "the spirit of the quirky Ami 6," lots of space and a comfortable ride.

15Record number of Citroën 2CVs to gather in France

Cars come and cars go, but the Citroën 2CV is a car that just won't quit. Originally designed in the 1930s, the French automaker had to destroy most of the prototypes before the German troops marched in to avoid them falling into Nazi hands.

1Burton Electric is a kit roadster built on the chassis of Citroen's 2CV

It's built on the same Citroen 2CV chassis as its gasoline-burning sibling, but there's one significant difference: it runs on battery power. The Burton Electric, hailed as "the world's most sustainable sportscar" by Burton, boasts a meager curb weight of 1,631 pounds.

6Citroen 2CVs make the trek from Paris to China and back

Former Le Mans racer Jacques Grelley has just kicked off a 75-day journey across 22,000 miles on what's sure to be one hell of a road trip, driving all the way from Paris to Beijing and back again. His trek will commemorate the 100th anniversary of a 1907 race, which saw five challengers travel the great distance often without roads or a map, and included Italian Prince Scipione Borghese who took top honors.

4Call it a Tin Snail, a Duck or whatever - the Citroen 2CV is back as a diesel-hybrid

Auto Express UK has a preview of the redesigned Citroën 2CV, a still-snail-like concept vehicle that brings the iconic vehicle from the second half of the 20th Century rushing into the 21st with some green credentials. The 2CV update - with a concept vehicle possibly destined for the auto shows in 2009 - will likely be a diesel-electric hybrid with high mpg and low emissions. The vehicle architecture will likely be based on the C3 supermini and C4 hatch. Other than that, there's very little
