Officially opened by Lord Montagu on 27 April, the exhibition includes an extensive collection of Citroën cars through almost 90 years of the Marque and car enthusiasts are invited to head down to Beaulieu to see the Citroën tribute for themselves.
The year long exhibition highlights how the French car manufacturer has not only broken the mould in car design, but has led the way with innovative and thought provoking advertising and marketing techniques.
Director of Communications, Citroën UK, Marc Raven said: “With our reputation for innovation this exhibition gives us the opportunity to showcase to over 350,000 visitors exactly what Citroën can offer. Citroën stands for style, innovation and technology, but linked to these core values are also safety and value for money.”
