Sure the original suspension layout of the 2CV is interesting, yet in Argentina later versions made by another company which had bought former assets of CitroŽn Argentina replaced this very same chassis for another one which had a more conventional suspension.
Agreed that the "new Beetle" is an abomination, but I'm curious if the Argentine 2CV suspension would still let a farmer drive across a plowed field with a cargo of eggs.
