New Chris Harris Video – 1957 Citroën 2CV

This new Chris Harris video is worth a watch since it’s so far from his usual style of sliding on a racetrack in a supercar.  In this one, Chris takes his newly purchased all original, 1957 Citroën 2CV that features a restored chassis, 425 cc 12 horsepower engine on a drive through the English countryside.  He profiles the Citroën’s simplicity of mechanical elegance and timeless design features such as the corrugated bonnet, sunroof, and unstoppable heater. He goes on to describe the impetus for his admiration for the 2CV as a result of the writings of the late, great, vintage motoring legend Alan Clark.

This is certainly a dramatic change of pace for Chris and it makes me wonder if he is having an anti-mid-life crisis?
