A chase for Adrian ;) ... between this 404 and the Peugeot 604 of A.Delon

It has all the details of the Break Super Luxe, though it's unusual for a cop car... but the dashboard, if it is the same vehicle, correspond rather to a Commerciale...

another one at the beginning of the film

What does the "Break" mean in Peugeot 404 "Break" Super Luxe ... (?)
I have seen that word used on other cars as well, but I have no idea as to what it signifies.
Does it mean it’s a wagon?

In Britain estate cars/station wagons used to be called 'shooting brakes', shooting being what the gentry used them for (still do, for that matter). Why the French used the alternative spelling - which I'd never heard of - I have no idea.

It is because they continued to use the term of the 19th Century: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brake_%28carriage%29
Why using "break" rather than "brake"? Maybe because in French there is no way that a "a" would be pronounced like the English "brake", but it would be acceptable with "ea" (just an idea - I do not know if it is the reason).

As far as I know it's the English word that changed its orthography. According to my Concise Oxford Dictionary, a 'break' was a carriadge-frame with no body for breaking in young horses (taming or discipline them), and also a large wagonette. In this meaning it was also used in French ('break') and Dutch ('brik'): a four-wheeled open carriadge with a front seat for the driver and a rear entrance to the two rows of seats on the left and the right.

Edit: According to 'le Petit Robert', it was first used in French in 1840; according to my Dutch ethymologic dictionary, it came to the Ditch language in 1899.
