Citroen Centenary – request by Citroen UK for display vehicles

Although the Citroen Centenary at Coombe Park will be the major UK event of the Centenary year, it will be by no means the only one – there will be a series of events taking place throughout the year, ranging from Citroen-orientated meetings to an enhanced Citroen participation in other shows and events.

Citroen UK are likewise creating a Centenary programme of their own, and this too is being done in conjunction with the enthusiast body. Accordingly, they have asked for our help in providing cars for two events in the near future.

In accordance with a list provided by Citroen France, the cars requested are:

Type A Traction Avant Type H

2CV DS Mehari

SM CX Xsara Picasso

Original C4 Cactus

We are advised that this is not inflexible, and other models will be considered; the GS and BX have already been suggested and approved.

The events are:

Citroen Dealer Conference, NEC Birmingham - 15-16 January 2019

As part of the conference we are going to be celebrating 100 years of Citroen and would love it if you could help us arrange for ten of the very best heritage cars to display to all of the guests. “

This is a rare opportunity to participate in an internal Citroen UK event, and see the company from the inside!

The cars will need to be delivered around lunchtime on the 15th and can be collected around 2pm on the 16th.

London Classic Car Show, ExCeL London - 14-17 February 2019

Located in London’s Docklands, this high-profile show features classic cars on the move as well as static displays. Citroen UK will have a marque feature display, and some additional mobile Citroens are also envisaged!

The show opens at 16.30 on Thursday 14th February, finally closing at 16.00 on Sunday 17th February. Details of display car arrival and release times will follow later.


For both events, owners are invited to attend as the guests of Citroen UK and are welcome to drive their own vehicles if they wish.

It is not expected that the individual vehicles for both events will be the same, although the overall selection should be similar; you are free to choose to volunteer for either or both events.

Complimentary passes, travelling expenses / transportation costs (but not accommodation) and hospitality will be provided.


Citroen UK have confirmed generous support for our Centenary event at Coombe Park, and we would like to reciprocate by providing as much assistance as we can for these two events.

If you have a suitable vehicle and would like to take advantage of this unique opportunity, please contact: as soon as possible – time is very short, and we apologize for the lack of notice – but we’re sure that you can meet the challenge!
