HERMÈS PRESS RELEASE
2CV HERMÈS, A TASTE OF LUXURY
The 2CV celebrates its 60th birthday during the Paris Motor Show, on 7 October 2008. To celebrate the event, Hermes has designed a made-to-measure outfit that highlights the vehicle’s ever-friendly and generous forms.
The 1989 2CV 6 Spécial, repainted in brown, gains a natural leather trim on the door facings, interior rearview mirror, gear knob, steering wheel and driver’s sun visor. For an even more elegant finish, the two seats are upholstered in Hermès grey-beige cotton canvas and natural leather. As a finishing touch, the bonnet and interior trim at the rear of the vehicle also feature Hermès cotton canvas.
An exhibition celebrating the birthday of this legendary car opened at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris on 15 April and is scheduled to run until 30 November 2008.
Happy Birthday 2CV ! To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the “Doh Doch” ( or Deux Cheveaux ), Hermes created a special version of a 1989 Citroen 2CV6 Special for the Paris Auto Show. Beautiful detailing with hand-stitched swathes of Hermes trademark gray-beige leather contrasted with white on the front and rear benches. Of course the Hermes treatment is worth as much as the car itself…
