Citroen has some super model gift ideas for Father’s Day with the Company’s latest collection of beautifully detailed scale models – from the latest C2 Supermini to classic Citroens from the past, like the iconic DS and 2CV.
Citroen was one of the pioneers of toy-making way back in 1923 when the Company’s founder, André Citroen, launched his first miniature, a 5CV, commenting that he wanted a child’s first three words to be "Mummy, Daddy and Citroen".
Eighty years on, the tradition continues, and the latest, updated collection has grown to some 120 models. These range from current models like the bold C3 Pluriel or the C8 people carrier through to such Citroen classics as the Traction Avant, DS convertible and H-Van. Also available are truly unique cars like the stunning SM Presidential car, as well as Citroen’s current rally great, the world championship-winning Xsara WRC.
Even the toddlers are taken care of with safe, cute models from the Baby range while the C3 Pluriel pedal-car should keep excited nippers entertained, and hopefully exhausted, up until bed time.
All these models, whether contemporary or classic, rallying or vans, are easy to get hold of – gift-buyers need go no further than their local Citroen dealer.Published 11 June 2004
