To tackle the gruelling Dakar Rally, this 2CV was fitted with an additional engine. Welcome to the 2CV BiBip 2 Dakar. A second air-cooled two-cylinder engine is installed in the rear to drive the back wheels. It gives the car four-wheel-drive and double the power. More than double, in fact, thanks to Citroën Visa cylinder heads.
It was converted to its twin-engined arrangement for the 2007 Dakar Rally. It was then owned by Stéphane Wimez of Club Cassis, a well-established maker of original 2CV parts and Mehari bodies using the original tooling.
After its cross-desert epic, the BiBip went on display in the Club Cassis showroom, and that’s where it stayed until they received a call from the Goodwood Motorsport Content department asking if they’d bring it to the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard.
