A pointed back, an unusual colour...
The flight of the "Little Citron"
A pointed back, an unusual colour and several nicknames since its launch in 1922; without a doubt, the new Citroën Type C, 5 HP, or "Little Citron" has everything it needs to be a popular car. Following the 10 HP Type A, this second model in Citroën's history is an immediate success with young people.
The range quickly expands with several versions. The "Clover" remains the most iconic, named after its unique back seat design, with two seats in front. A clever way for this 3-seater Torpedo to optimize the space in its angled shape.
In 1923, a 5 HP costs 10,800 Francs. 100,000 manufactured each year. However, the great story comes to an end in 1926, when Citroën resumes its policy to create unique, high-class models.
