‘The french don’t do flashy cars’, says

Paul Hol­ly­wood, bowl­ing along in a boxy Peu­geot 205 GTI. But they do do rev­o­lu­tion­ary cars, as the fi­nale of his lad­dishly like­able se­ries makes clear. He’s al­ready demo-ed the Citroen DS, launched in 1955 with sus­pen­sion so unique it later saved the life of Pres­i­dent De Gaulle. And he’s taken a spin in the Aixam Crossline Evo, a 1hp car – yes, one horse power – and a top speed of 28mph. France is also the coun­try that gave us the Miche­lin guide, and the Miche­lin-starred restau­rant. So Paul’s two worlds – food and cars – fi­nally col­lide.
