In 1976 French composer and music producer Jean Michel Jarre rocked the music world with the unique electronic sounds and eerie melodies on his album Oxygène – his first commercially successful album. In the same year the progressive, innovative car company Citroën was forced to merge with Automobiles Peugeot to create PSA Peugeot Citroën.

Once-upon-a-time Citroën was a fairytale car creator. It gave us magic rides like the Citroën DS with its enchanting bodywork and hydropneumatic suspension. It conjured the clever and capable front-wheel-drive Traction Avant and even the ugly duckling 2CV was the stuff of legend, thanks to its supernatural ride quality and low cost. But then, almost 40 years ago, it merged with Peugeot... and the magic was gone.
