1933 Citroen “8” time trial celebration poster – Montlhery.
This large vintage original poster measures over 3 feet tall (23×38″ / 58x97cm) and is in very good condition for its age. The original fold lines have been minimized with professional linen mounting.
This Citroen 8CV was nicknamed Petite Rosalie and was specially prepared for the record attempt to prove the reliability of the new 8CV model. The car ran for 133 days and nights, and only stopped when it had covered over 186,000 miles (300,000km). This incredible total — 120,000 laps at an average speed of 58mph (93kph) brought Citroën enormous publicity. The car also broke or established 300 other records.
- This of course comes with our lifetime certificate.
