Tackling the Western Sahara in a 2CV

The Sahara desert has a spectacular sea shore on it’s west coast in Mauritania. To explore it, Adventure 2CV took a 4 x 4 Truckette through it’s dunes, rocky capes and tricky mudflats.

In many of the latter areas they had to drive at 15 km/h, all-wheel-drive engaged and with deflated tires. Even then the Truckette managed to got bogged down at times and ramps were needed!

Fortunately they also had talented video crew with them to document the trip and the resulting 30 minute film (in French but with proper English subtitles) is a visual feast to watch as well as showing the versatility of the 2CV.

Sit back and enjoy….
