Designed by André Lefèbvre and Flaminio Bertoni in 1938, the 15/6 version was mostly manufactured after the war. Phase out began in 1953 with the arrival of the DS.

Nicknames include ‘Traction Avant’ and ‘Queen of the Road’ with ride, handling and performance that would be considered excellent by today’s standards.

A favorite of the French government and Charles de Gaulle, it was also the highly regarded getaway car of French gangsters.
