Citroen 2CV Deux Chevaux

The Citroën 2CV got it’s name from the French taxing system. Deux Chevaux (2CV) meaning two (tax) horsepower. While driving through the south of Spain in 2013, we found one that featured the name on the bonnet, quite literally.

  • In Spain, the car is affectionately known as the "Dos Caballos" ("Two Horses"), and these hood ornaments were fairly common back in the day.
