1952 CITROEN “Traction Avant” 15/6 SPLENDILUX /€48000


The Citroën Traction Avant is produced from 1934 to 1957.

It has a rare feature on its contemporaries: the driving wheels are those of the front axle. Traction is the first innovation of this car. 

This technique is quickly associated in France with the Citroën, which earned its nickname, “Traction”, and later the pleonasm “Traction avant”. 

The real novelty is to combine on one vehicle the most modern solutions of the time: in addition to the front wheel drive, a monocoque structure, hydraulic brakes and an independent wheel suspension on all four wheels. 

Traction Avant benefits from better handling than most of its contemporaries.

Constantly improved by André Lefèbvre, this Citroën paves the way for the mass production of vehicles equipped with this technique, its qualities worth a long career and a production of 760,000 copies.

Under the name Splendilux, we actually find the business of Tolerie Automobile Industrielle H. Esclassan of Boulogne sur Seine. 

Splendilux is a set of elements capable of completely modifying the look of a front wheel drive, by the installation of enveloping wings and tapered with integrated headlights, a new vertical bar grille, a lower puncture cover than the original, and a small trunk back, not to mention tubular bumper games. 

The transformation Splendilux does not betray the traction, it modernizes and gives it a new genre in tune with the fashion of the late 40s. 

To date, three or four sedans and two cabriolets 11B and dressed in original are still existing.

1991 VOLVO 780 V6 COUPE BERTONE / €9500


Volvo has a long tradition of coupes like the P1800 or the 262C. 

For his new big coupe based on the family 740/760, Bertone is again requested. Unlike 262C, Bertone is in charge of design and manufacturing.

The main market of this car remains the United States, main consumers of large coupés.

Unveiled at the 1985 Geneva Motor Show, it will be produced from 1986 to 1990 with 9086 copies of which 70% will be destined for the American market. 
It is equipped with a complete equipment for the era including seats, mirrors and electric sunroof, air conditioning, ABS, on-board computer, high quality hi-fi, airbags …

Like the 740/760, the 780 is a propulsion equipped with the V6 PRV 2.8 liters of 167 hp (which will increase to 143 hp following the new antipollution standards). 
A 129-hp 2.4-liter 6-cylinder diesel engine is also available. It should be noted that this is one of the first large diesel coupes. 
The price is rather elitist with a base of 315,900 francs in 1987, in other words, the same price as a Mercedes-Benz 300 CE, 30,000 francs more than a BMW 628 CSI, and 5,000 francs more than a Jaguar XJS V12.

In 1988, the 780 received an independent rear suspension.

1990 saw the arrival of a 4-cylinder turbo 200 hp. This year is added as an option the differential lock. The model discreetly leaves the catalog the same year. On the reasons of the relative commercial failure of the 780, there was first the prices quite high (because of the manufacture by a specialist bodybuilder) and the lines a little too massive. Nuccio Bertone himself ironically defines the Volvo 780 as “a truck in a party dress”.

And yet, that’s all that makes her charming!

The Ad

The Ad that caught our attention is therefore this rare Volvo 780 V6 Coupé Bertone, a second hand from 1991 put into circulation in France, totaling 195 000 km.

Black color with black leather interior, it is equipped with an automatic gearbox, it has all the available options including the electric sunroof, heated electric seats etc … 
Presented in a remarkable condition with a robust and followed mechanics, the vehicle has a limpid history first owner who bought it new sold it in September 2017 to the current seller.

Among the latest work on the vehicle, the hoses were changed, the woodwork redone, dashboard switchs changed. 

The vehicle is serviced by a garage and is sold with a valid fench “contrôle technique”. 

However, it will be necessary to foresee the change of the sunroof seal and to put back the small headlights to make it perfect. 
The high mileage could scare but it is a Volvo followed.

A very beautiful car, luxurious that will allow you to stand out by its rarity and have fun driving.

Its price: 9 500 €
