Manufactured by Citroën between 1961 and 1978, the Ami 6 was a supermini and for several years was the best-selling car in the French home market. When the company eventually decided to replace it, a total of 1,840,396 units had been sold globally. It was often called the Citroën 3CV (Three Horses), as the engine size of 602cc was a little bit larger than the upper limit of the 2CV taxation class, and was offered as either a four-door saloon, four-door estate, or a two-door van.

The early models were thrust forward by a 602cc air-cooled twin, not generating too much 'G-force' which was probably just as well given that the front seats easily unclipped and could be used as picnic chairs. The Ami 6, along with the Ford Taurus, were the first vehicles fitted with rectangular headlights, an innovative design that went against the view that all headlights had to be circular. Despite having dramatic modern styling, the initial sales were as slow as the car (0-50mph in just over half a minute) as it was judged to be too expensive, however, things quickly picked up and it was ultimately much loved.
