A 70th anniversary tribute, of a kind, to the iconic 1947 Flaminio Bertoni-designed Citroën H Van.

Created by builder Fabrizio Caselani and designer David Obendorfer, the 2017 ‘H-type’ is actually a series of external panels, refining the shape of the original commercial van’s panels, bolted to a Citroën Jumper.

The kits will be built by FC Automobili and limited to 70 units, for sale in Italy.
