The top models of the French brands from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's continue to appeal to the imagination. ‘La Fête des Limousines' is a collection of beautiful stories, anecdotes and history about the Citroën CX, XM and C6, Peugeot 604, 505, 605 and 607, Renault 20/30, 25, Safrane and Vel Satis, and the Talbot Tagora. Some special models will be covered, such as the Peugeot 607 Paladine, the enormous creations of Tissier based on the Citroën XM and the Renault 20 in Dakar-outfit.
But there is more. Did you know for example that in the 1990s a coachbuilder built subtly stretched 25's, Safranes and XM's in the Netherlands? And is it possible to buy a real Limousine for a few hundred euros from the country's most notorious car dealer? ‘La Fête des Limousines' surprises from start to finish with interesting stories, often with a playful wink.
