Product Description
 
The Citroën Traction Avant was an automobile produced by the French manufacturer Citroën. About 760,000 units were manufactured from 1934 to 1957. The Traction Avant, designed by André Lefèbvre and Flaminio Bertoni in late 1933 / early 1934, was the first front wheel drive car in large scale production. The car introduced the use of an arc-welded monocoque frame, where other cars of the era were based on a frame onto which the body was built. Monocoque construction (called "Unibody" today) results in a lighter vehicle, and is now used for virtually all car construction.

This method of construction was viewed with great suspicion in many quarters, with doubts about its strength. A type of crash test was developed, taking the form of driving the car off a cliff, to illustrate its great inherent resilience. The novel design made the car seem very low-slung relative to its contemporaries — the Traction Avant always possessed a unique look, which went from appearing rakish in 1934 to familiar and somewhat old fashioned by 1955.

Since it was considerably lighter than "conventional" designs of the era, it was capable of 100 km/h (62 mph), very fast for the era, and using only 10 litres of gasoline per 100 km (24 mpg).

The Traction Avant is generally associated in movie iconography with the Second World War: the typical cliché is that of Gestapo agents, clad in black, driving around in black Traction Avants. There is some validity to this image, as German occupation forces did indeed admire the car for its handling qualities and speed. The police and criminals in France also preferred the car for this reason.

The film The Great Escape featured a Traction Avant driven by members of the French Resistance where three Nazi officers were killed in a drive-by shooting. In The Sound of Music, the final escape from the Nazis is by Traction Avant. James Bond is followed by a Traction Avant driven by a Bulgarian agent in From Russia with Love

In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Jones and his father try to escape from German aircraft in a "borrowed" convertible Traction Avant 15. The scene is notable because the filmakers had the Traction Advant`s rear wheels spin out while taking off, even though it is a front wheel drive car.

The model is rigged for animation, and the product contains four detailed and textured resolutions of the model.

This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 8 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate, and mapped and textured.
