Estimate:

One of only 693 examples
Highly desirable twin-engine model
Fitted with correct ĎAWí engines

The CitroŽn 2CV is unquestionably one of the most important European cars of all time. Produced in several markets and many models, the 2CV was a car for everyone, as proven by its continued popularity.

One of the more unusual 2CV variants, and certainly among the most collectable today, is the dual-engined four-wheel-drive ĎSaharaí. The front engine drives the forward wheels in the usual manner, with the rear engine powering the rear wheels. To call the Sahara four-wheel-drive is selling it shortóboth engines can be operated independently, making the vehicle front-, rear-, and all-wheel-drive. The car also benefitted from near-perfect weight distribution, and with the useful additional power, the car was capable of 100 km/h on flat ground. Highly adaptable to any terrain, Saharas have been known to tackle every off-road adventureóeven the Dakar Rally!

This example is fitted with its correct ĎAWí engines and is believed to have been assembled at CitroŽnís factory in Portugal at Mangualde, where 2CV production commenced in 1961.

Offered here is a beautifully restored 2CV 4x4, fresh and ready for its next adventure.

O CitroŽn 2CV ť inquestionavelmente um dos automůveis europeus mais importantes de sempre. Produzido em vŠrios mercados e muitos modelos, o 2CV era um carro para todos, como se provou pela sua eterna popularidade.

Uma das variantes mais incomuns do 2CV, e certamente entre as mais colecionŠveis atualmente, ť o bimotor de traÁ„o ŗs quatro rodas "Sahara". O motor dianteiro aciona as rodas dianteiras da maneira usual, com o motor traseiro a acionar as rodas traseiras. Chamar o Sahara traÁ„o ŗs quatro rodas ť subestimŠ-lo ó ambos os motores podem de ser operados de forma independente, tornando o veŪculo com traÁ„o dianteira, traseira e com traÁ„o ŗs quatro rodas. Este 2CV tambťm beneficia de uma distribuiÁ„o de peso quase perfeita, e com potÍncia adicional ķtil, era capaz de 100 km / h em terreno plano. Altamente adaptŠveis a qualquer terreno, os Sahara s„o conhecidos por enfrentar todas as aventuras fora de estrada ó atť mesmo o Rally Dakar!

Este exemplar estŠ equipado com os motores "AW" corretos e acredita-se que foram montados na fŠbrica da CitroŽn de Mangualde, em Portugal, onde a produÁ„o do 2CV teve inŪcio em 1961.
