1990 Citroën 2 CV Charleston
Among other things, a rare “Charleston Duck” was offered. The special series, limited to 8,000 vehicles, was presented by Citroën at the Paris Motor Show in October 1980. With its unconventional and trendy two-tone design, houndstooth pattern seats and round headlights, the 2CV 6 Charleston is considered by many fans to be the most unusual version of the 2CV.
The fact that the vehicle on offer has only covered 9 km since new and has not yet been registered adds to the great rarity value of this model.
