The 10 greatest minimalist cars of all time
Citroen's C4 Cactus is the latest exponent of the less-is-more philosophy. Here are the greatest back-to-basics cars ever

The designers of the new C4 Cactus - Citroen's bubble-wrapped, back-to-basics family hatch - are at great pains to tell us that less can equal more. And generally, we agree. Debt, mullets, deep V-necks - the world would be a better place without them.
Which got us thinking. Do any cars from the annals of history prove Citroen's philosophy? Stuff that's actually improved by trimming the fat, streamlining the spec, and narrowing the remit?
Turns out there are. Several. Some are icons. Some are bloody awful. All are the very least they can possibly be.
