Old car adverts featuring French speakers aren’t really our forte. There’s Nicole huskily whispering “Papa”, Thierry Henry inventing new nonsense words to sell Renault Clios… That’s about it.

So we’re delighted to welcome a new entry into our canon: this little beauty from the days before CO2 emissions formed the bedrock of all motor car marketing.

Any more Gallic moments of pre-CGI brilliance out there, TopGear.commissars?
