Top 10: Best television car adverts of the 1990s

Citroen ZX (and the V8 Tatra)

We were led to believe that the main character in this advert was on some sort of a spying mission, driving her new Citroen ZX around all sorts of challenges and obstacles whilst being pursued by a bunch of baddies in a glorious V8-powered Tatra 613 – the oddball rear-engined Czech-built limousine that was launched in the early ’70s and survived through to 1996. Frankly, we don’t care how manoeuvrable the new ZX was, or how suited to spy work; we just don’t like the idea of a Tatra being mistreated like this. Boo-hiss to Citroen!
