« Regards croisés », Peugeot & Citroën : 100 years of automobiles
If Peugeot is one of the three brands that created the Automobile, there is another, although younger, which has made history and celebrates 100 years of automotive construction this year: the brand Citroen. To celebrate this centenary, the museum of L’Aventure Peugeot presents a unique exhibition entitled « Regards Croisés ».
Orchestrated by Hervé Charpentier, the director of L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS collections, this exhibition invites you to look back on 100 years of automobile history by presenting side by side models of the two brands by placing them in the historical context of the time.
At the Museum entrance, two mythical cars welcome you: the Peugeot 205 GTi and the Citroën 2 CV. These cars are not from the same generation but they are certainly the most iconic and popular models in the history of both brands.
Exceptionally and for a period of 6 months, in the Lion’s place, you will find along your visit twelve vehicles with chevrons, facing its contemporary competitor of Lion brand
