To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:80,000 - 100,000 One of only 693 examplesHighly desirable twin-engine modelFitted with correct AW engines The Citroën 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 Sahara. 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 shortboth 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 adventureeven the Dakar Rally! This example is fitted with its correct AW engines and is believed to have been assembled at Citroëns 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.Um de apenas 693 exemplares construídosModelo bimotor altamente desejávelEquipado com os motores 'AW' corretosO Citroën 2CV é inquestionavelmente um dos automóveis europeus mais importantes de sempre. Produzido em vários 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 colecionáveis atualmente, é o bimotor de tração às 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 tração às quatro rodas é subestimá-lo ambos os motores podem de ser operados de forma independente, tornando o veículo com tração dianteira, traseira e com tração às quatro rodas. Este 2CV também beneficia de uma distribuição de peso quase perfeita, e com potência adicional útil, era capaz de 100 km / h em terreno plano. Altamente adaptáveis a qualquer terreno, os Sahara são conhecidos por enfrentar todas as aventuras fora de estrada até mesmo o Rally Dakar!Este exemplar está equipado com os motores 'AW' corretos e acredita-se que foram montados na fábrica da Citroën de Mangualde, em Portugal, onde a produção do 2CV teve início em 1961.Um 2CV 4x4 muito bem restaurado, fresco e pronto para a sua próxima aventura.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
