2CVs weren't designed to go around corners. Citroën came up with the concept in 1937 to give farmers an alternative to horse-drawn carriages in rural France. The German occupation of the country slowed things down, yet interestingly, it was the energy crisis in the seventies that really made the 2CV a success story. And with Citroën building more and more as the years went by, it was only a matter of time before the British figured out what to do with those cheap used "umbrellas on wheels".
As explains, turning the little Citroëns into endurance monsters packing almost four-times their stock power is a walk in the park. The cars are lowered as much as possible, with added camber and stiffer springs. The engines are built to produce 45 horsepower, and can be swapped during a race in five minutes. The gearbox is from a slightly more advanced 1980s Citroën, and there's a metal roof and a roll cage for safety. Last but not least, side pipes, since the 2CV's factory exhausts don't extend to the back anyway.
And the result? With 45 horsepower on tap, you're look at "the Bugatti Chiron of 2CVs". Take that as you will.
