Its architecture. Its bodywork. Its engine. Everything about...
An inspired and inspiring Traction
Its architecture. Its bodywork. Its engine. Everything about it inspires the makers of the period, envious of these design masterpieces.
The first in the world to lose the running board: you don't "mount" a 7, you descend into its cabin. Novel is the adoption for mass production of front-wheel drive: it's no longer called Citroën 7, but "Traction", its name as it's popularly remembered.
Its success causes rapid offerings of shapes and capacities with the variants "11" and "15 SIX". And what of the "22"? This 8-cylinder model seen at the Paris Motor Show 1934? This luxury model is never marketed. The rare examples produced disappear. This mythic version, looking novel and very enigmatic, becomes the most spectral Citroën.
