The town of Cogolin is located in the mountainous region with lots of narrow roads and forests. In the summers, wildfires used to be regular feature due to increase in temperatures.
So it was decided to make a car that can be driven both ways without the need to turn. The car selected was the Citroen 2CV.
They chopped the front of both the cars and decided to join them both. They converted the car in to a 4-wheel drive with two separate engines and separate steering on both the sides. There were two transmissions but they could be shifted only with one lever. The car could be driven only by one driver at a time and this was done by inserting a locking bolt that was attached to the steering column.
Only to distinguish the two front's the designers gave the headlights two distinct colour schemes – the front was painted red and the rear headlight in black. The car was named as Citroen 2CV Bicephale (two faced).
