The TRACTION was presented at the 1934 Motor Show. At that time, there were three versions: the 7, the 11 and the 22. The 7 cv was almost a test car. The 11cv was proposed in 2 versions: the light 11 legere and the normal 11. The 22 CV had a short life, as the only show where it appeared was in 1934. It was Andre Lefebvre who took over the construction of the revolutionary car which was the TRACTION. From then on, the firm of CITROEN launched into the construction of a more powerful car and, in 1938, the six-cylinders CITROEN 15 SIX made its appearance. The 15 SIX was a normal 11 CV with an extended bonnet, and it attained timed speeds of up to 130 kph, with remarkable road holding, which is why it came to be nicknamed La Reine de la Route (Queen of the Road). In 1953, CITROEN proposed three new colors: pearl grey, smoky grey and midnight blue, but black always remained the favorite. Between 1946 and 1955, the 15 was the official car of the French Government. In 1955, the Presidency of the Republic purchased three 15 SIX H platforms. One of them, with limousine coachwork by Fresnay, was for a long time the official car of President Rene Coty and of General de Gaulle. Production of the CITROEN 15 stopped in the middle of 1955, after seventeen years of success.
