In pictures – 100 years of Citroen celebrated with spectacular Parisian display

2019 marks 100 years since the launch of the very first Citroen motor car – the Type A.

Since then, the French manufacturer has produced some of the most recognisable, innovation and, occasionally ridiculous cars in the business.

To celebrate its centenary, Citroen invited us to try driving some of its most famous historic models and to take in the Born Paris XV display.

This spectacular exhibition saw 100 models from the last 100 years arranged along the Rue Linois in Paris’ XV Arrondissement, close to the original factory, with everything from early Type As to Sebastian Ogier’s WRC car there for the public to enjoy.

This gallery explores some of the highlights.
