Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2008

Some of you folks don't remember but 60 years ago, on 7 October, an iconic car was born: the Citroen 2CV. With this occasion the French manufacturer decided to celebrate the 60th birthday of the vehicle at the Paris Motor Show, on 7 October 2008. In order to do this Citroen contacted Hermes!

No, not the Olympian god from the Greek mythology, the "other" Hermes, a French high fashion house specializing in leather, lifestyle accessories and perfumery luxury goods.

As you may know already, Hermes already has a special edition of the Bugatti Veyron but this didn't stop them to customize another vehicle: the 1989 2CV 6 Special. 

The classic vehicle got a new brown body painting, while the interior received new leather trim on the door facings, interior rearview mirror, gear knob, steering wheel ,driver's sun visor but also on the two seats that are upholstered in Hermes grey-beige cotton canvas and natural leather.

In order to complete this finishing touch, the bonnet and interior trim at the rear is now featuring new Hermes cotton canvas.
