L'Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS

When Pierre Peugeot created L'Aventure Peugeot in 1982, he wanted to lay the foundations of a major heritage structure to serve the industrial history of the family group. A landmark saga for French industrial history that already spanned two centuries. His project took on a new dimension in 2001 when he inaugurated the Citroën Conservatory. The dynamism of the volunteers involved in these various projects, to whom Pierre Peugeot was very close, the ever-increasing number of collectors, and the support of the PSA Group, have allowed over the decades the blossoming of a rich and dynamic whole.


In 2015, to increase the effectiveness of the action initiated by Pierre Peugeot and optimize its operation, the PSA Group allows the creation of the Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS. Chaired by Xavier Peugeot, son of Pierre Peugeot, this non-profit association, governed by the Law of 1901, extends the Aventure Peugeot model to the Group's three brands. It also incorporates two heritage entities that further enhance the richness of its actions: the Collection de l'Aventure Automobile in Poissy, known to enthusiasts by its acronym Caapy, and the Fonds de Dotation Peugeot pour la Mémoire de l'Histoire Industrielle, more commonly known as the Archives de Terre Blanche.

The association is a non-profit organization governed by the French Law of 1901.

Now known as l'Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS, the association, while it has salaried employees, relies on a network of formidable volunteers, often former Group employees, who are active at all sites. Expertise, certifications, restorations, identification of archives, organization of events, public relations, their experience and memory are, in all areas, a guarantee of excellence.

L'Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS is a structure dedicated to the preservation of its brands' heritage, its influence and its development. Everything is done to present it to as many people as possible. This heritage is also what binds the association to its French and international members, who are first and foremost enthusiasts with high expectations. By unifying the brands of the PSA Group within a single structure dedicated to the historical universe, the association gives itself new means and can move forward with a collective will, working to serve all passions, all eras, all audiences.
