There was never a 2CV automatic, I'm afraid. Paul at the Citroen Car Club confirmed this and told us the nearest thing to an auto was the Trafficclutch. 'This used a centrifugal clutch as well as a traditional disk clutch. It drove like a conventional car except when crawling in traffic when it disengaged the centrifugal clutch to save the driver some pedal work.'
