Technical specifications, photos and description:
In 1961. Citroën began work on 'Project S'. a sports variant of
the revolutionary Citroën DS. As was customary for the firm. many
running concept vehicles were developed. increasingly complex and
upmarket from the DS. Citroën purchased Maserati in 1968 with the
intention of harnessing Maserati's high-performance V6 engine
technology to produce a true Gran Turismo car combining the
sophisticated Citroën suspension. The result was the Citroën SM. br/>first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970 and which went
on sale in France in September of that year. Factory produced cars
were all lefthand drive. although righthand conversions were done
in the UK and Australia. The origin of the model name 'SM' is not
completely clear. The 'S' may derive from the Project 'S'
designation and the 'M' perhaps refers to Maserati. hence SM is
often assumed to stand for 'Systeme Maserati' or 'Sports Maserati'.
Another common alternative is 'Série Maserati' but others have
suggested it is short for 'Sa Majesté' (Her Majesty in French). br/>which aligns with the common DS model's nickname 'La Déesse' (The
Recently imported to the UK. this 1971 Citroën Maserati SM
lefthand drive is supplied with an impressive history file which. br/>combined with its fantastic condition. leads us to believe that the
mileage reading of 37. 00km is accurate; unfortunately however. br/>this is not warranted.
In excellent condition throughout. this is finished in metallic
gold/beige with typically unusual Citroen orange trim. It is
supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test
certificate valid until December 2016. The Citroën SM has always
been regarded as one the most collectable of the post-war Citroëns
and rarely comes to market; as such. when one does. they usually
demand high prices. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a rare
Citroën SM that will grace any classic car collection and should
prove a wise investment for the future.
