|PUBLISHED (THIS EDITION):||2005|

Citroen Traction Avant was the worlds most advanced family car at its launch in 1934, and in the course of its 23-year life it became a national emblem for the French. Not only did it popularise front-wheel drive and chassis-less monocoque construction, but it also combined for the first time on one car such modern features as an overhead-valve engine, all-round torsion-bar suspension, hydraulic brakes and rack-and-pinion steering.
At the same time it can lay claim to being one of the most beautiful motor cars every produced, its graceful lines being the work of talented artist and sculptor Flaminio Bertoni.
Lavishly illustrated and clearly presented, this book is the indispensable companion for all fans of this most legendary of motor cars.
