You may have read Andrew’s brilliant story about the Citroën Ami and 2CV already, but if you haven’t, you can do so by clicking here. I’m sure you’ll appreciate Olgun Kordal’s wonderfully creative photographs too.

It’s hardly the stuff of blockbuster YouTube fame and fortune, but we thought the Ti audience would enjoy seeing the two cars in action nonetheless. In this video I drive both back to back, then drag Andrew in to discuss them at length.

You can watch the video on the Ti website right here. I hope you enjoy it.
