Colour: Blanc Meije AC088
MODEL : 602cc engine, front disc brakes. A limited edition of 2000 cars appeared to celebrate the America’s Cup. Citroën sponsored a yacht in the Defi Francais skipped by Marc Pajot. For every car sold, Citroen provided some money for the upkeep of the boat. The car used a ‘blanc meije’ 2CV6 Special as its base. There were no additional extras, only the decoration was special: an ocean blue band on the bonnet, hood and bootlid, and a curved band on the flanks. The upholstery in an off-white cloth also had blue bands across it. Finally, the words ‘2CV France 3’ were on the bootlid, accompanied by a sticker of a yacht.In 1984, a second run of 2000 examples were launched under the name of ‘Thalacap’, the only difference being the lack of a yacht sticker.It was marketed in the United Kingdom under the name of ‘Beachcomber’ and of ‘Transat’ in Germany and the Benelux countries.
