Citroen car rally at Design Museum

A riverside car rally has been held outside the Design Museum to mark the opening of its Citroen exhibition.

'When Flaminio Drove to France' is an exhibition looking at Flaminio Bertoni's designs for Citroen, the French car company. Beginning in 1934 when Bertoni designed the bodywork of the Citroen Traction Avant – reportedly in a single night – it continued in the 1940s with his work on the supremely functional 2CV and in the 1950s with the alluring DS19, nicknamed the 'deesse' or 'goddess'.

The exhibition traces Flaminio Bertoni's career at Citroen through clay models, drawings, vintage marketing material and the original cars.
